Working for the Department of Housing, Cecil Stapleton sees first hand the vulnerabilities of people in need.
In many instances, people who come through the system to get accommodation move in with not much more than few clothes and incidentals. They often sleep on mattresses on the floor without necessities such as blankets.
On his own merits, Cecil set out to do something to help and started his own Blanket Appeal. Cec set himself a target to deliver 500 blankets to St Vincent De Paul before Christmas and to date he has delivered 399 blankets and is continuing his plight for the remaining 101.
TBB staff and Directors delivered 27 blankets toward this total and we would like to congratulate Cec on his amazing efforts and wish him well to succeed his target. Please click here to contact us if you’d like to donate.
