Welcome to the website for Selig (Suffolk) Trust, a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (registered charity number 1157245) within which the Ipswich Winter Night Shelter sits.

“What I’m interested in seeing you do is: sharing your food with the hungry, inviting the homeless poor into your homes, putting clothes on the shivering ill-clad, being available to your own families.”

Isaiah Chapter 58 vs 7, (The Message Version)

But firstly, where did you sleep last night? A park bench, a shop doorway or a derelict building? These are some of the answers we received from guests who have stayed in the Ipswich Winter Night Shelter during previous years.

All volunteers are invited to our Thanksgiving Service. This year it is being held on Sunday 20th March, 6:30pm at Museum Street Methodist Church, 17 Black Horse Lane, Ipswich IP1 2EF. The nearest car par is Wolsey Car Park.

The Service will be led by Revd. Canon Paul Daltry and other members of the Selig Board (the charitable framework under which the Night Shelter sits).

We are hoping that some of our guests past and present might join us for the service and of course there will be light refreshments after the service.

Thank you for all the incredible support we are receiving through donations, volunteers, prayers and encouraging words. We are immensely grateful for your support enabling the Night Shelter to run for another season and indeed expand.

We can now accept donations online via Virgin Money Giving! Please see the Donate page for more info.
