Many thanks to Box Pizza for supplying pizzas for the soup-run last night.  The guys at Box Pizza created ‘Yorkshire Pizza’ for Yorkshire day and were also looking for something they could do to support the community… that’s where we came in.  Our soup-run is usually a very simple affair so as the rain fell there were lots of happy faces when we had something a little special to offer in celebration of Yorkshire Day.

…And in case you were wondering they were fantastic, you should definitely give them a try: http://www.boxpizza.co.uk/

Breakfast event in Huddersfield

We are holding an event in Huddersfield aimed at engaging with the business community in the area.  The event, held on the 25th April, will offer an insight in to our work and why there is a need to do it.  It will also, following the ‘Blue Plaques’ campaign, look at death rates among those who are homeless.  If you would like to join us for the event please get in touch: admin@simononthestreets.co.uk


Plaque Impact

Louise Lapish from Gatewood Consulting was so moved by the #streetplaques campaign that the company made a donation.

Louise said, “I’ve been interested in what Simon on the Streets do for a while but when I saw this campaign I needed to act.  one of the reasons it resonates with me is that much of the work we do is about helping people to communicate better; and that exactly what The team at Simon on the Streets have to do with their clients.”

Louise met with Clive at one of the Plaques to officially make the donation.
