Homelessness charity is the winner from our book competition

Croydon’s foremost homelessness charity, Nightwatch, is the biggest winner of Inside Croydon‘s latest reader competition.

Volunteers provide hot food, clothing and other aid to Croydon’s homeless every night

Three of this website’s loyal subscribers will each be receiving a  copy of the acclaimed book, Skint Estate, written by Cash Carraway.

But Croydon Nightwatch will be receiving a cheque for £60 from Inside Croydon, which guaranteed a donation of £3 for every entry to the competition.

Inside Croydon and its readers have supported Nightwatch before, with annual charity fund-raising and appeals for other help,” Steven Downes, the website editor, said. “But there’s always more that could be done, and thanks to the generous support of the site’s patrons, we decided to make our last reader offer of 2019 one that every entry would generate a cash donation.”

The three winners are all patrons of the website – having signed up to support the award-winning and story-breaking journalism that Inside Croydon has been publishing since 2010.

The winners all knew that Nightwatch has been offering food and support to Croydon’s homeless since 1976.

Austen Cooper, of Waddon, Steve Thompson from Upper Norwood, and Dawn Assefa from Coulsdon will all be receiving a copy of Skint Nation.
