London soup kitchen offers food and company every week
The Order’s Companions Cafe goes from strength to strength
London, 14 September 2017
—— The bread of life ——
Big cities often mean loneliness and homelessness. An evening in the Order’s Companions Cafe seeks to alleviate the problems and to reach out to those in need.
Every week the Cafe, in central London, sets up for 80 guests, cooks rice and sugo, heats soup, prepares tea, coffee and juices, and lines up a range of sandwiches, wraps, bread rolls, cakes and fruit – all donated from local businesses and gratefully collected by Order volunteers. Special events include the arrival of a volunteer hairdresser on one evening, an X-ray unit on another.
