Loose Ends Newbury
Serving the homeless and vulnerable 

Loose Ends is a drop-centre in Newbury serving food to the homeless and vulnerable. We are run by approximately 60 volunteers who serve up to 120 meals a week and give over

6,000 hours a year of their time to helping Loose Ends.

We prepare and serve healthy, hot meals in a safe and friendly atmosphere and also offer mini food parcels, toiletries and clean clothes to all those in need.

Loose Ends is on the Move

Loose Ends will be leaving their current home as we will be unable to operate from Morton Hall beyond the end of 2021. We are lucky enough to be partnering with Newbury Cricket Club, who are rebuilding their club house, and we will share this with them. We are fundraising for the move and for future developments and operating costs and would be very grateful for any donations received.Please follow the link below.
