In these really cold days, our clients are enjoying delicious homemade takeaway meals – from cottage pie to mac cheese – and some lovely puddings including bread-and-butter pudding and cornflake tart and custard.

Our numbers are growing again, up to 50 a day. There continues to be a real need for St Anneโ€™s in our community, and we are receiving some good donations of socks, hand warmers and hats. Roll on the days when we can open up properly again!

Raquel’s lovely lemon cookies

Fran and Raquel went the extra mile for our clients this Valentineโ€™s Day (we had it early on Friday at St Anneโ€™s). Fran made some great bunting for us to cheer the clients up, and Raquel made delicious lemon biscuits cut into heart โค๏ธ shapes, and we put them in special heart-shaped bags. Thank you to them both – the clients were really surprised that you did that for them. We all need a bit of ๐Ÿ’• love.

On that note: Happy Valentineโ€™s Day to everyone – clients, volunteers and supporters ๐Ÿ’•โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’•โค๏ธ
