“I’m aware of the important work Centrepoint Outreach has done for many years supporting the homeless and others in need and am excited to have been given the opportunity to continue and develop that work supported by a good team of staff and volunteers.

“I am keen to promote and raise awareness of Centrepoint Outreach in the community and look forward to having the opportunity to talk to local groups and organisations.”

Centrepoint’s charity shop, next to the centre, is one of its main funding sources and is in need of new items to be donated for sale.

One unusual donation received recently was several glamourous prom-style dresses. Pop in to have a look at what bargains are to be found.

Chairman of the Trustees, Alison Austin said: “We are pleased to welcome Liz Hopkins following the retirement of John Marshall and look forward to working with her in continuing and developing the work undertaken by Centrepoint Outreach in supporting homeless and vulnerable people in the Boston area.”
