for the past few years, once a month a few members of the bigmoose team head to cardiff centre and help the homeless.
this started as just going down and giving out sandwiches and hot drinks however this has now grown massively!
- we started the 'grab your coat' campaign and asked the people of cardiff to donate any warm clothes, sleeping bags and shoes that they no longer wanted to this awesome cause. every month we now have black sacks full of items for these people to take, free of charge.
- we invited hairdressers/barbers down to give the homeless people haircuts and to trim the men's beards. the selfless hairdressers have a chat with the homeless whilst cutting their hair and lots of these people have said that getting their hair cut gives them a new lease of life. we have witnessed some fantastic transformations, as show below:
- we have had food donated from the restaurant 'arbennig', the very kind owners, john & ceri, gave us 50 portions of cottage pie and peas as well as chocolate cake to feed the homeless of cardiff.
- we also now collect all of the waste food from a couple of 'greggs' shops in cardiff which always go down a treat with the homeless and the loaves of bread that are donated mean that they can take some away for future meals.
we also now collect the waste food from a cardiff morrisons store and this is also donated to the homeless and shelters.
