Barnabus is a Christian Homeless charity based in Manchester. They started over 23 years ago with one man who took it upon himself to walk the streets handing out food and drink to the homeless. They have developed a lot since then and now provide a lifeline for the 600 homeless and vulnerable people who visit them each week - many of these have severe addictions or mental health issues, which Barnabus aim to help people get over. They support the peoples physical, emotional and spiritual needs to do as much as possible to get them back to being a healthier and happier person in a mainstream society. They have received the 'unsung heroes' reward for their voluntary service, and reply completely on donations from the public as they get no government funding. Barnabus have a large calendar of events in order for fundraising, next year will be their 25th anniversary and to celebrate they are holding an event on 11th November 2016, where they will be expecting some very familiar faces to make an appearance and show their support. To help the Barnabus charity continue doing such good work, you can find their donation pages and ideas for fundraising on their website. Also keep updated with them on Facebook and Twitter - you may even see a competition to win a recording experience in Cotyso Studios!
