As we approach Christmas and the weather is getting colder, an Inn Churches Project is going to run this winter.
Training for volunteers is on Tuesday 12th January, 2014 at 7pm at Salvation Army Halifax, St James Road, Halifax, HX1 1YS.

A number of volunteer roles would help with the smooth running and success of the project including; Chef/Cook, Be-friender, team leader.
Full training is provided and the next training session is being held on Tuesday 12 January, 2014 at 7pm at Salvation Army Halifax, St James Road, Halifax, HX1 1YS.
