Our Patron Her Majesty The Queen

We are honoured that Her Majesty The Queen, formerly HRH The Duchess of Cornwall, is a patron of our charity. Her Majesty attended our official launch In 2022 where Her Majesty congratulated the team for creating a space that benefits the local community saying:

“The minute you walk in here you get a lovely uplifting, cheerful feeling. What you’re doing is bringing people together and getting people talking over food. You can’t think of many better combinations.”

“As a young woman experiencing crisis for the first time, this organisation has been a huge part of getting me back into a routine, restoring my hope for the future, and reassuring me that no matter what happens, there will always be a hot meal, friendly people and a safe space to welcome me.”
