2023 TINATHON in support of The Shelter Trust for the homeless people of Jersey.
For the homeless community in Jersey and people affected by poverty, 2023 is proving to be a difficult, expensive and worrying year so it is not surprising that The Shelter Trust anticipates that demand for support will grow in the coming months. It is therefore a matter of huge relief that The Shelter Trust will hold a Tinathon fund raising event at Wests Centre on Friday the 6th October, between 8.00 am and 2.30 pm.
The idea of the Tinathon is that we would urge banks, finance companies, accountants, law firms, businesses, schools, churches etc., to ask each of their employees, pupils and members of their congregation to donate one or more tins of food to this event – If necessary, committee members and helpers will collect donated tins of food from businesses, schools etc. during the days prior to the main event.
The culmination of the idea is to collect all the tins from businesses, schools, churches etc. and to receive donations from individuals attending the event then display them in Wests Centre before they are sorted, packed and removed to remote sites for storage prior to use by the Shelter Trust.
