New City College bring cheer to the less fortunate
Posted 18th December 2017
New City College staff joined other volunteers to bring merriment and cheer to the less fortunate when they volunteered at local charity, North London Action for the Homeless, in preparation for Christmas lunch.
As well as lending helping hands, the College also donated a sum of money to the charity which will go towards some much needed equipment. The donation was made in the place of spending money on corporate Christmas cards.
Centre manager Mike Tomes, (pictured above, centre) said: “Thank you to New City College, we are so grateful for their generous donation. Without the support of local organisations we wouldn’t be able to be open and support the community.”
The North London Action for the Homeless serves food to approximately 80 people twice weekly. The charity provides three course meals at each session, which consist of soup, a main meal, dessert, tea and coffee – just the thing to keep the cold away.
The centre also provides take away food, clothing (upon request), Welfare Rights Advisers, and Health Access workers. As well as all of this, they run literacy classes, music sessions and outings.
Volunteers are always needed at the centre to help prepare and serve the food, set the tables, deal with any requests and of course that all important washing up.
