Truro Homeless Action Group (THAG)
Truro Homeless Action Group (THAG) consists of volunteers whose sole aim is to provide daily breakfast for those in need. We serve breakfasts 07.30 to 08.30, close at 09.00 and offer take away sandwiches. We provide some meals over Christmas and in winter offer flasks and thermals. We operate from the Church Hall of St John the Evangelist, Strangways Terrace, Truro TR1 2NY, tel. 07934 950957.
Truro Homeless Action Group (THAG) provides a warm welcome, food and shelter and a regular and safe place for the homeless and vulnerably housed to meet. Around 35 volunteers regularly give two hours a week to provide free cooked breakfasts, seven days a week, 365 days a year. On Christmas Day and Boxing Day we offer a turkey lunch with all the trimmings.
We are currently raising funds via the Cornish Christmas Giving Catalogue.This year’s donations will go towards helping us provide breakfasts (£1.50/person) and the Christmas Day and Boxing Day lunches (£6/person).As well as food, THAG also provides toiletries, flasks, razors, thermals in winter, along with socks, gloves, hats, scarves and underwear plus, of course sleeping bags and rucksacks. We have even been known to provide a complete change of clothing when needed.
THAG was first formed over 22 years ago after the night shelter in St George’s Road was closed. THAG is now based at the Church Hall of St John the Evangelist in Strangways Terrace, Truro.
