Rememberence service Thursday 17th December. 

The poor side of life

It’s time for our second Christmas rememberence service. We can’t quite believe that we are still having to protest about the injustices that occur inside Ashton Under Lyne Jobcentre every Thursday. But we have made a commitment to be there for the claimants because they depend on us to be there.

Being poor is very isolating. You don’t have a social life and all you can think about is keeping warm and stopping yourself from feeling too hungry. Christmas is a particularly bad time of year. You are constantly reminded of what you don’t have. And as a result you avoid places that are commercial etc. It’s much better to stay at home where you don’t have to be reminded of just how little you have.

We know this so we will be handing out hats, scarfs, gloves, mince pies and hopefully a few biscuits. These always go down well…
