We call ourselves a bit of a last chance saloon for anyone really who needs a leg up. It’s quite holistic; we eat together, cook together and listen. It’s about providing somewhere people can get back on an even keel.

Kate – Seagulls Reuse

We worked every Bank Holiday and on Saturdays, because the need was consistent. I thought I needed to get a food parcel to this lady that day. It transpired, she lived in a little flat, hidden away at the end of a cul-de-sac, so nobody would walk past. She had big posters in the window saying, ‘Please give me food. I’m hungry. I can’t get out.’ I dropped the bags at the doorstop. She was in an horrendous way – you could tell she was a very poorly lady, and very nervous about touching the bags, but she needed the food. She’s someone we supported for a couple of weeks and she ended up in hospital. The desperation there was awful.
