West End Impact 2015 Christmas Dinner

Today we held our annual Christmas Dinner at West End Impact.

Over 100 guests joined us for two sittings and a wonderful day was had by all! 




We'd like to say a massive thank you to everyone who helped to make today happen. Our amazing volunteers worked so hard and everyone who generously donated.




A special thank you today to Tarnbook Chip Shop and Atkinson Chip shop for donating 2 sacks of peeled potatoes!! Also thank you to the lady at the Laundrette on Sefton Road/Heysham Road for ironing all our table cloths.


And from last week, our gifts and parcels - the donations have been overwhelming!





Big thank you to everyone else who helped out, today was brilliant!

Welcome!

In 2002 West End Impact started its journey of Helping People, Bringing Hope and Changing Lives!! We opened in response to the regeneration of Morecambe which was a government focus at that time; Regeneration starts with people and although the new prom in Morecambe is amazing there are still lots of people in great need and lots to be done.
We opened our doors to everyone and our services have been tailored to the needs of the Community. There are now 12 different projects or sessions running from our multi purpose building!!

At West End Impact we support people through crisis, help them repair reasons for their crisis and assist them in moving on. We work with people who are homeless, jobless and hopeless – people who have lost their home, their job and/or hope.
As a Christian Charity we believe God’s love for people is all inclusive, relevant for the whole human being.
For some the Good News of Jesus is a challenging word in season or a great sermon; for others it is a hot bowl of soup, housing advice and a dry sleeping bag.
We are thankful that God has us spread his love in both ways.
Often people take 3 steps forwards, 5 backwards and 8 sideways but we pray they find new hope in themselves, through us and in God.
