On 29th July 2014, John Clark gave a talk to Coventry North Rotary Club and guests, including  Inner Wheel members, about the Night Shelters at seven different churches in the City.

Accommodation was offered with a supper and a light breakfast for up to 20 homeless people each night, from January to March.

This pilot scheme, which was supported by the City Council, was a great success. The donation of £20,000 at the start had grown to £29,000 by the end of March. Bunk beds, food and sleeping bags with liners had been bought, to meet the needs of the homeless.

John received a vote of thanks at the end of his talk, and a cheque for his charity.
