Volunteer Story

Alastair, soup run volunteer

"I have had a rewarding time helping out on the soup run on a Tuesday...I very quickly understood that the Soup run was not about Soup. It is about relationships and the consistency of someone from Simon on the Streets being there every Tuesday night. Sometimes it is just a chat and a laugh. Other times it is by being there you can help get a vulnerable young person off the streets and into a secure place".
