Volunteering for the homeless

It’s the start of a new year and I’ve been sharing new ideas and resolutions with friends. Apart from the usual one of doing more exercise, one of my top resolutions is to volunteer more than I did in 2014.

Over the last few years I’ve been volunteering as part of a team who provide meals for the homeless in central London.  There are often heartbreaking, yet courageous stories which are shared by guests who come.

The meals are organised by Central London’s Rough Sleepers Committee and for the next meal at St Peter’s Church on January 17th 2015  I’m going to bring a few friends along.

I’ve been really encouraged by how many of my friends are ready to make time during these cold winter nights of hibernation to join me in sharing a meal and helping out by volunteering for the homeless.
