GDS Diadem Just Giving Page:
We are now in the process of making GDS Diadem ready to host the Shelter for years to come. The most important improvement that the facilities at Diadem require is an upgrade of the kitchen to a commercial kitchen standard. This will make preparing meals for up to 75 sleepers each night far easier for the many volunteer catering teams. In order to start fundraising for this project, Susan kay has kindly set up a Just Giving page. If you would like to support the project to turn GDS Diadem into a home for the Care Shelter in a financial way, please consider donating via this page.
