There and Back in a Day – Volunteers Visit Providence House

Thirteen of our supporters from Devon joined us in a minibus trip to London to visit Providence House to see the centre and area where the young people live.

We had great journeys, a huge welcome and a wonderful lunch. Esther showed us around the amazing facilities at the centre, Robert showed us around the Winstanley Estate and introduced us to some of the local characters all of who happily shouted “Whatcha Robskie”!

We joined in the afterschool club – exhausting – made harmonicas from lollypop sticks, met some of the parents and then had to make a swift exit. Even then we returned home just before midnight!

A great day much appreciated by all involved.

“It was so good to make the connection”

“Good to see where the vision started and that the need is still being met”

“A lot of energy…beautiful children…. dissolving barriers…enthusiastic staff ….full credit to them”

“A valuable, essential work”
