Story

In 2016, we started with a simple idea and a big heart, feeding around 15 people one night a week in the Wyvern car park. Little did we know, this humble beginning would lead us to where we are today.

Our journey is a testament to the power of community and compassion. By the end of 2019, we were feeding 50 individuals two nights a week. Even during the pandemic we continued to deliver food parcels.

In 2022, we found a warm home at the Pilgrim Centre in Swindon, and most recently in July this year, we became a registered charity! We now open our doors to approximately 100 people every Monday and Tuesday evening.

Many of the individuals we serve have faced significant life disruptions due to abusive relationships, homelessness, or addiction to drugs or alcohol. We're here to offer them a lifeline and hopefully a path toward rebuilding their lives.

With rising living costs and food poverty, the demand for our services has never been greater. As a charity, we work tirelessly to assist those who depend on us, but we can’t do it alone! Your donations help us purchase essential food items, supplies, and maintain our warm space at the Pilgrim Centre.

Please consider making a donation to help us continue our mission in the Swindon community.

Your support is absolutely essential in sustaining our service, and we can't thank you enough for your generous donations. They mean the world to us and to those we serve!
