Mai Britt - Session Manager

I moved to England from Denmark in August 2017 and had decided that I wanted to do some volunteering to get to know people. I have worked in Denmark within mental health and substance abuse and wanted to put my experience to good use. I came across Meryl and the work she was doing with the other volunteers at the Soup Kitchen from Facebook and decided that it might just be the place for me. What I found was a place where everyone is welcome. The compassion, warmth, interest and the ability to secure a safe haven for everyone is what makes the Soup Kitchen so special. I am honoured to be a part of this every Thursday and always look forward to this day. What I gain from this relationship is way more than I give on a personal plan. I have been included from the beginning and it has helped me to get the hang of the English language from both from the volunteers and the users.
