St Anne’s supporters

We are very grateful for the support of organisations and local businesses, including:

St Mary's Church

St Mary's is an inclusive Anglican church situated in a vibrant and diverse part of Brighton. It welcomes all who enter its doors - and also those who simply look in out of curiosity. St Mary's strives to be representative of the community in which it is situated - whether elderly or young, partnered or single, straight or gay.

City Food Share is working to reduce food poverty & homelessness in Brighton & Hove. Its focus is on fundraising to ensure the year-round sustainability of food banks, drop-in centres and homeless shelters offering emergency food services in the city.

FareShare receives surplus food from food companies that would otherwise go to waste. It is then delivered to local charities in refrigerated vans by volunteers. St Anne's has deliveries several times a week, and FareShare provides most of the supplies required to make our meals.

The Co-op Local Community Fund supports projects across the UK. Every time members buy selected Co-op branded products and services, Co-Op gives local causes a helping hand. St Anne's is part of the Co-Op card scheme, so sign up for a card to help raise funds for us as you shop.

Greggs bakery specialises in savoury products such as bakes, sausage rolls and sandwiches, and sweet items including doughnuts and vanilla slices. We're lucky enough to get regular donations of surplus items to St Anne's, meaning that our clients sometimes get these delicious treats.

Waitrose & Partners supports good causes in the community and its customers decide who gets what. It started its Green Token scheme in 2008, and it’s now the longest running community initiative of its kind. We have been lucky enough to receive funding in this way.

Tesco Bags of Help is responding to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis by setting up a new short-term fund to support local communities.

The Morrisons Foundation supports charities making a positive difference in local communities across the country. Its grant-funding programme supports charities that deliver projects which help to improve people’s lives and they are proud to help St Anne's Trust's vital work to help the most vulnerable in our society.

Specialising in web marketing for the creative and ethical, local digital marketing company White Rabbit donated the design and build of our new website - helping us to help the homeless find support and giving us a new platform to communicate with the local community and our supporters.

Superdrug has raised millions of pounds for community projects, and it helps St Anne’s with donations of much-needed toiletries and other goods. These donations are given directly to clients in need.

We work with Asda’s local Community Champion, the driving force behind the supermarket’s support of local causes. St Anne’s regularly benefits from food and financial donations, for which we are very grateful!


Haircuts4Homeless is a registered charity set up by veteran hairdresser Stewart Roberts. Inspired by the actions of hairdressers in various parts of the world cutting hair for the homeless, Stewart set out not only to do this himself but also to build a community of skilled hairdresser volunteers who give their time free of charge to give haircuts for homeless people.

Donatello Italian restaurant, a brilliant Brighton institution, has supported us for many years, particularly at Christmas when life on the streets can be so challenging.

Pocket Angel

The Pocket Angel app was created to allow the general public a means of helping people experiencing homelessness and other social disadvantage in an increasingly cashless society. Its Assist app allows people to provide food, shelter and basic hygiene essentials to people without giving cash. St Anne's benefits from vouchers generously purchased via the app.
