Sales of a Harris Tweed hat handcrafted in Donegal have helped buy vital supplies for The Welcome Organisation over the winter period.
The Belfast Newsie is made by the world famous Hanna Hats in Milltown. 100 per cent of the sales of the Newsie go directly to The Welcome Organisation.
Since the Newsie’s online shop opened in December last year sales of the Newsie have bought 90 brand new winter sleeping bags for Welcome’s Street Outreach team.
The Outreach team is on the streets of Belfast every day of the year 7am to 2am, providing support to people who are sleeping rough on the streets.
The service has a publicly available telephone number for members of the public to contact Welcome if they see someone sleeping rough and they are concerned about them.
The Outreach number is: 07894931047
