Watford Homeless Warriors



I’m writing this on a bright, beautiful evening It it now September and the start of my favourite season – Autumn.

I love the bright sun and the cool, crisp evenings. Things don’t stay that way unfortunately, and the transition to Winter can be all too brief. With that comes mild discomfort for some (scraping ice off the car window) and bitter conditions for others – the people sleeping rough in Watford.

I’ve put together a brief list for this newsletter – please do visit Watford Homeless Warriors Ltd Facebook Page for more up to date posts on specifics:

  • Sleeping bags
  • Tents
  • Duvets
  • Hats
  • Boxer shorts
  • Ladies underwear – range of sizes
  • Socks
  • T shirts/Sweatshirts/Hoodies/Jumpers – general warm clothing
  • Trainers – mens and women’s – various sizes
  • Leggings – even worn if in good condition and washed
  • General camping equipment
  • Wetwipes/toiletries/washbags.

Nice things! Holiday size moisturiser/handwash/foundation samples etc. Living on the street doesn’t stop you from wanting to smell nice/look nice!!

Don’t forget that Stephen is a drop off point for the Red Box project.

If you haven’t got any things that you can donate, please consider a contribution to our funds:


We have lots of events coming up but too many to squish in this time!! Just a reminder to vote for Stephen Russell in the Watford Observer volunteer awards:


Thank you so much for everything you are doing! Massive thank you to Watford Weekly Business who are supporting us in so many ways – what a big-hearted bunch they are!!
