Old Tea Warehouse
For many years, our church has maintained a link with the Old Tea Warehouse (OTW) in High Wycombe.
The organisation provides residential facilities for those who are, or are at risk of being homeless, many of whom may also need their drug and drink rehabilitation services.
We regularly collect small items such as toiletries and non-perishable food and we provide Christmas and Easter presents for the residents. The specific items we are specifically collecting in 2022 are detailed here.
To learn more about the OTW click here to watch a video from English Homeless Trust. The trust are charitable partners to Riverside who run OTW.
The video explains how the hostel works and the experience of homelessness. OTW feature in the video alongside other hostels in the UK. One resident, Michael talks about his experience of homelessness and how the hostel helped him. Michael went on to be a brilliant member of staff at OTW and has also spoken to our Parish about his experience.
