Roll up and get yourself a Citz Sandwich!

We are hugely excited and proud to be part of the Pret Christmas campaign supporting five homeless charities on their Christmas menu. Look out for our logo on sandwich and salad boxes in Pret stores up until Christmas, send us a pic and use the #showusyourcitzsandwich.

Rather than post a traditional news piece, we thought we’d write a little poem to show what this means to us and our Members:

Traditionally a time of merriment and cheer,
Christmas is when we have loved ones near.
And yet for the homeless it is the most difficult of seasons,
Cut off from family and home for many different reasons.
Nobody should be left isolated and cold,
It is then when loneliness can really take a hold.
At Cardboard Citizens we help the homeless every day,
Providing support and community along the way.
We hope to instil confidence, belonging and worth,
While telling untold stories and spreading some mirth.
So please buy a #citzsandwich, if you don’t mind,
To help our Members leave homelessness behind.
