Crawley Open House is a step closer to opening a workshop which will teach valuable life and employment skills to the homeless, thanks to the generosity of Co-op shoppers.
The shelter will soon be offering classes in bike maintenance and furniture restoration which could help those who take part seek employment and better their situation.
The charity has been looking after the homeless and vulnerable in this community since 1994.
Last year 17,000 people took advantage of the services they offer, including counselling, health and financial advice and life skills classes.
