An open door for Oxford's homeless community


Gatehouse AGM 2014

Friday 20 June

A happy band of friends gathered together for the AGM on 20th June. We were able to hear good news on many aspects of the life of the Gatehouse, as well as expressing our thanks to Andrew Smith, who will be retiring as Project Director in the autumn. For more details, including reports to download, please see here.

Do you enjoy playing shop?

Our two redoubtable clothing volunteers, Monica and Ann, inspired by the project director apparently, are looking towards retiring themselves over the summer. Is there anyone out there who is up to the challenge - maybe a couple of friends? Come and have a chat about taking on the clothes store - managing stock, organising the pop-up shop (currently on Mondays and Thursdays - but that could change to suit you) etc.

More details from Andrew on 0777 3333 728

Those adventurous Cambridge Ramblers completed the Varsity March on the weekend of 21/22 June, raising over £1,300 to be shared between Jimmy's hostel in the other place and the Gatehouse here. Congratulations and MANY THANKS.
