“When I left the armed forces I had nothing to look forward to in my life. The Bridge changed my life, especially the people I have met. It’s a life-changing experience” [Barry]


We can’t do what we do without you. It’s as simple as that. And thousands of local people rely on us for food, friendship and a chance to improve their futures. There are many ways you can help us continue with our life-changing work.

Donate food

Could you make some extra sandwiches or a cake when you’re cooking for your family? All year round, we need homemade food. Please give us a guide “use by” date. Contact: Kath Lawson-West by using the form at the bottom of this page to describe what you would like to donate.

Donate clothes

It’s cold on the streets. We always need good quality clothing for men and women – especially jeans, anoraks, fleeces, new underwear, gloves, socks and trainers. Please use the form at the bottom of the page to get in touch with the team about donating clothes.

Donate furniture

Most of the people we support have very little. Even when they are ready to set up home by themselves, they need basic things that most of us take for granted. We welcome good quality

  • beds
  • wardrobes
  • chests of drawers
  • small arm chairs

Please note: All items must have a fire retardant label, to be legally compliant.  The Bridge has nowhere to store furniture but we work closely with Emmaus at Hinckley who will collect it on our behalf. More information can be found at Donate Goods to Emmaus

Give time

Your unique skills could help enrich the lives of others. Virtually all our work is carried out by volunteers from all walks of life. Research suggests that giving freely of your time can help to keep you fit, improve sleep patterns and reduce stress levels. By getting involved you will also

  • meet new people
  • develop your skills
  • make a big difference to vulnerable and homeless people in Leicester.

We will help you find a role to suit your interests, experience and time available. View the volunteer area of our website for further information.

Your Money

We don’t receive any government funding and rely completely on donations from the public. We keep our overheads very low; apart from a project leader, all our work is carried out by volunteers. Almost all the money we receive is spent on providing more services for people on the streets.

  • £1 can provide a hot meal for a homeless person
  • £5 will pay for a Christmas dinner with all the trimmings
  • £10 will buy a sleeping bag

But don’t feel you have to stop there, we would be very happy with donations of £50, £100 or even a £1,000!
