Guildford Action, the drop-in centre for homeless and isolated people and families, is hosting a ‘friends evening’ on Thursday, September 14, at its base, Beverley Hall in Haydon Place, starting at 7pm.

The evening, that’s open to all, will show results of its work and how the funds its receives benefits those in need.

There will be a talk by a person called Richard, who will tell his story of how he met a young homeless man who was sitting on a sleeping bag in the doorway of a deserted restaurant in Farnham.

Shops were closed and the street was deserted. It was late afternoon, dark, and at the height of the coronavirus lockdown. The temperature was minus 3c.

Richard will share what happened next, and how Guildford Action helped this young man get back on his feet.

There will also be short inspirational talks about extraordinary men and women, such as Florence Nightingale, Elizabeth Fry and William Wilberforce – people who have made the world a better place, in the same way that Guildford Action aspires to do in its world, every day.

Guildford Actions says: “We will also love to hear your thoughts about what we do here. In the meantime, do have a look at our three-minute video of what it means to be a friend.

The event is free, while use this link below to book your ticket to help Guildford Action know of numbers attending.
