Tango Shelter

It is getting cold. But no problem for us as Tangueros and Tangueras have warm embraces. So let's

  • Help The Westminster Night Shelter Project though Tango Shelter
  • Celebrate Tanguero Pope Francis' Birthday

Pope Francis, an Argentinian Jesuit, is a lover of Tango. He declared that his favourite orquesta is D'Arienzo.

So on Saturday 9th December 2017 we celebrate a charity milonga in Mayfair at the elegant Farm Street Church Hall across the road from The Connaught Hotel in aid of the Farm Street Winter Night Shelter Project.

13 churches and a synagogue partnering together provide accomodation for rough sleepers for 8 months of the year - from October to May.

The hall where the Milonga will be held is transformed into a Monday Night dining room and then a dormitory for the homeless as part of the Westminster Night Shelter Project for people who would otherwise have spent the night on the streets of London.

Meals are supplied by local hotels and restaurants including Claridge's.

The parish buys inflatable beds, sleeping bags and pillows. These are allocated to each guest and stored in the church hall after the dormitory is dismantled. Breakfast is supplied in the morning.

The guests are referred by the West London Day Centre, Marble Arch which provides a place for homeless people to drop-in for breakfast, and case workers to offer advice on matters such as housing, skills development and educational opportunities.

More info on the West London Day Centre and the Westminster Night Shelter Project.

So let us Tangueros turn our warm embraces into a warm place to stay for London's cold and shivering homeless and help fund the Farm Street Winter Night Shelter Project.
