Loose Ends Newbury
A Hot Meal and a Warm Welcome

Loose Ends Newbury is a well established drop-in centre for anyone  in our community who may otherwise go without a hot meal.  We welcome people who are homeless, lonely or vulnerable as well as those who are simply struggling to make ends meet. We are a registered charity and are run entirely by unpaid volunteers.

As well as providing nutritious food, clothes, and other essentials we offer a safe friendly space where people can socialise. We also liaise with other agencies who may be able to help our clients so that together, we can make a difference to people’s lives.

Help for families!
Introducing . . . . . NORTHCROFT KITCHEN

We understand that many families are struggling with bills and the cost of living. To help out we are inviting parents/carers, together with their children, to join us for a free tasty meal in a family-friendly atmosphere.

Served in the Club House at the Cricket Club from 3.30pm to 4.45pm (last meal served at 4.30pm).

To help us cook the right amount of food it would really help us if you could let us know in advance if you're thinking of coming along by texting Gill on 07907122007.
