‘Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty."
We could not continue without the support of our amazing volunteers. We do not operate a rota system as we feel this may put undue pressure on people to turn up when they don’t really want to. So we just ask people to come along on a Sunday night if they feel lead to and so far we have always had enough volunteers. So if you think you may be interested in volunteering with us then just show up on a Sunday night between 5 and 7pm and come and check us out. Volunteers are always needed to help prepare the meals, serve the meals, clear the tables, clean the kitchen, hoover the room or just to sit with our homeless friends and chat to them – you would still be made very welcome.
We are always in need of donations of clothes (must be clean and in good condition), shoes, boots, trainers, warm socks, underwear, toiletries, sleeping bags, tents, pillows, blankets, warm coats, hats, scarves, gloves, rucksacks. Plus food donations, particularly of tinned meats, tinned fish, tinned fruit, long life milk, tea and coffee, biscuits, cakes, chocolates, snacks.
We provide a hot meal every Sunday evening for around 40 people – currently we have two groups who very kindly provide us with a cooked meal once a month – the Cheadle Mosque (http://www.cheadlemosque.org/) and the ‘Helping Hands’ charity. If you would like to provide a hot meal for us – either as a one off or as a regular event – then please email us at [email protected].
Big or small, every gift you give helps transform the lives of homeless and disadvantaged people. We couldn’t do what we do without your support. We are completely reliant upon charitable donations and could not continue without the support we receive from the general public as well as churches, schools and other local organisations. If you would like to set up a regular donation to Loaves and Fishes then please download the standing order form by clicking here.
