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.

Enjoying Our New Home

We succesfully moved to our new home at Newbury Cricket Club on 6th May. It was an exciting day for both volunteers and clients  - and the weather was on our side with sunshine all the way!

Thank you to everyone who made this move  possible.
