Sprucing the Goose!

The Wild Goose drop-in Centre is well overdue renovation and after you helped raise £150K last year for Sprucing the Goose, we are very pleased to announce that a building contractor has been agreed by our Trustees and we will be handing over the keys to them on MONDAY 23rd MARCH, for the construction work to commence!

Proposed interior design sketches and a list of the construction works will be on display at our Launch Day next Wednesday 26th February (see previous article for details) – all the more reason to come along!

Mick (The Wild Goose Manager), Stuart (Life Recovery Manager), Ruth (Operations Manager) and Jonathan (CEO) are all busy making plans for when the building is closed. The work is estimated to take approximately 4 months. Our priorities are to provide The Wild Goose clients with day-time food and drinks and a space for the Life Course participants to meet, at locations as near to the building as possible.


Spring of Hope women’s night shelter and East Bristol Foodbank will be open as usual because they are at different premises. ✅

The inHope staff team will continue to work throughout the closure at another location, to be announced shortly.

During the closure, I will be sharing fortnightly updates specifically about Sprucing the Goose, telling you what the builders have been up to, with photos and hopefully some video footage. Throughout the building project, we will still need your support with practical donations and volunteer needs and these will be shared in the fortnightly update.

For those who already receive our monthly e-news, unless you specify otherwise, you will automatically receive the fortnightly update. If you would like to sign up to receive the updates, please email me [email protected]

This is a very exciting time for us and we hope you are excited too! Watch this space for more announcements…
