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.
