Project Hele Community Kitchen SOS
Our ancient 30 year old kitchen in Hele Torquay is creaking and groaning under the strain of providing free food for up to 100 people at a time. We would like to do more to help, but our clapped-out kitchen says, 'No way'. It can't be repaired unfortunately; it needs a completely new one, not flash, just fairly heavy duty and easy to clean.
Torbay (South West England) is a wonderful place to live, but not so wonderful for, the homeless, the hungry, those struggling just to make ends meet, the elderly, the despairing and the broken-hearted. At Hele is not just about feeding warm food and providing shelter from the coldest months, it is a place where anybody can come to find a place of warmth, light, respect and helpfulness.
Most of us in the UK are only one wage packet away from losing everything , so to us, there is no 'them and us'.
