Katie - Session Volunteer

Newbury Soup Kitchen is a special place and I am very lucky to be involved with it. I have volunteered at several places in the past, but am relatively new to Newbury and the Soup Kitchen. At my first session, I was struck by the strong sense of community amongst the clients and volunteers. We are contributing to something that makes a real difference.

For years I have found it really frustrating to see people going without food or shelter while there is clearly an abundance of waste in our society. Newbury Soup Kitchen is a fantastic place where I can actually do something practical about this injustice. I really appreciate the friendly non-judgemental atmosphere where clients and volunteers treat one another on an equal footing.
