    In 2019 my life changed forever. I had an emergency operation to save my life and I was given the chance of a new one. My Stoma (Stan) was born on 4th March 2019... I am raising money for 2 charities close to my heart. This will go towards helping them to continue to provide a vital services they offer to people who are sometimes in their darkest hour.

    Below is just a slice of what both Worcester Street Cafe and Purple Wings do.

    Purple Wings - The vision of the charity is to help ostomates regain confidence through our Time for Me Grants. This is a tailor made service and is very much based on a relationship built between the person applying for the grant and all of us here at the charity. It might be that a person really needs some ‘me’ time by relaxing at a spa, going on a shopping trip and attending a photo shoot for example. Sometimes the service can provide outings for families and couples as we all know how hard it can be on the people around us at a time of illness. The charity has sent people for meals with loved ones to ensure that ‘us’ time is catered for. We have also sent families for days out. Whatever it is we do for you, it really based on your individual needs and proving that you really can ‘live’ not just ‘exist’.

    Worcester Street Cafe - Four nights a week we set up tables in Copenhagen Street, Worcester. We give out hot drinks, freshly cooked meals, puddings and food to be taken away. This food is stock that has been unsold that day in Greggs and Pret a Manger. We distribute warm clothing such as coats and socks. Most importantly we listen to our service users/ our friends who attend be they homeless, vulnerable, lonely or hungry. We signpost to professional organisations who can further help and advise.We are all volunteers and welcome anyone to come and see us in action from 7.15 pm Monday to Thursday.

    For only £2 we can feed one person a hot meal and pudding.
