As we are nearing the end of the refurbishment we are going to start planning how we will deliver services.
New Beginnings Reading will be launching an All Night Cafe from the Queens Arms. This really is the fulfilment of 5 years of not giving up on the desire to help those who are homeless. We are thinking to pilot the scheme for 2/3 nights a week to see how it will all work and to find the best way of helping.
We will be looking work with the existing services in Reading to support those who are homeless.
We need your help! What I have realised in all of this is how much people want to help. We have seen it with our own eyes in our town centre, we have read the countless stories about homelessness soaring,some of us have been involved face to face with those who are homeless by volunteering at one of the may good services that Reading already provide.
We are holding 2 meetings to bring together people who want to help. Would you like to be involved? We will need people to come in from 9pm to cook and set up, register and welcome our service users, people to do a middle shift sleep in until morning then a team to come in to serve breakfast and clear away.
Please share in your news feed and any groups you are in. We are going to need a lot of committed people to make this happen. If you can’t make either of the 2 dates or times please PM me your email address and I will be in touch.
Thanking you all in advance for your love and support.
