As we go into November things are much the same at Sanctus – we still hand out 50+ hot meals and endless hot beverages at our door, seven days a week.By Sandra Pluthero, Cafe Manager
We have helped home some of our service users and supported some who have been at risk of losing their tenancy with benefit advice etc.
We have seen quite a few new faces, many needing ambient food from our store cupboard and taking bread and cake from our donations.
Sadly we see more and more service users suffering with mental health issues – many falling through the net due to the lack of funds, resources and staff in this field.
We are currently unable to take clothing donations due to covid but we do need emergency sleeping bags, tents and rucksacks for those who turn up on our door step with nothing.
