Pudsey Parish Church has this week opened its doors to destitute asylum seekers in a link up with the West Yorkshire Destitute Asylum Network (WYDAN), writes Keely Bannister.

Until the 9th September, the Church Lane institution will be providing a bed for the night as well as an evening and breakfast meal for the WYDAN service users. 

These are the three ways in which you can help Pudsey Parish Church help those in need:

  • Donation of your time volunteering at church during the week – there are numerous opportunities and training will be given prior to commencing your role.
  • Donations of new underwear, vests and socks.
  • Monetary Donations: Visit this link and select WYDAN from the drop down menu titled ‘my donations are for’. 

This isn’t the first time that a West Leeds church has linked up with WYDAN in this way, with Farsley’s St John’s Church having provided the same service to asylum seekers in need last year.

If you have any questions or can help, e-mail or call 0113 2577843.
