Boston’s homeless charity Centrepoint Outreach has been boosted by a £250 donation to buy home equipment for those in sheltered housing.

The donation was made by county councillor Tiggs Keywood-Wainwright, from the Big Society Fund. The money has been used to purchase pillows, toasters, kettles, dinner sets and glasses.

Coun Keywood-Wainwright said: “I am pleased to be able to help with this donation because most of this goes towards helping people in housing difficulties and we have got so much of that in this area.”

Centrepoint Outreach chief executive Liz Hopkins added: “We are very grateful for the donation. The items bought will help people in social housing who have come via Boston’s Women’s Aid or children’s services.”

This is the second time Coun Keywood-Wainwright has supported the charity - having donated £250 in May last year.
