Gloversí grant to benefit many

Gloves

People across Father Hudson’s community projects will benefit from a grant made by the Worshipful Company of Glovers of London.

Originally formed in 1349, the Company is now a modern organisation with close links to the British glove industry. They contribute to many charitable causes, focusing on helping those in real need.

Father Hudson’s community projects are the latest beneficiaries, as the Worshipful Company of Glovers has given us a grant of £1,500 to buy gloves. The money will be put to good use across multiple projects in Digbeth, Sandwell, Kingstanding, Wolverhampton and North Staffordshire.

The grant will help us support vulnerable, destitute and homeless people, including refugees and asylum seekers, by buying warm gloves for guests, residents and visitors to Tabor House, Fatima House and Brushstrokes Community Project.

New gardening gloves will benefit our volunteer gardeners in North Staffordshire, who help older and disabled people to look after their gardens. And we will be able to buy medical and food preparation gloves for staff and volunteers across our community projects.

Father Hudson’s Care is grateful for this support, which will have an impact on many people’s lives.
