OPENhouse is a charity in Stroud, Gloucestershire that provides housing, education, and complex mental health support. On Christmas day the Bishop of Gloucester will be joining us to help serve lunch to those alone and in need on Christmas day.
What we need to make Christmas OPENhouse a success:
We are keen to reach as many people as we can who are lonely and/or hungry this Christmas.
