“So my beard has been with me since time began and many of you have said in the past I’m gonna cut it off in your sleep”.  Well here’s your chance to help my beard earn some money for a worthy cause.

I have been volunteering at Soup Kitchen in Newbury for the last few years and i can’t think of a better cause to enable them to support the most vulnerable in society.  Not just the homeless, anyone who comes through the door.

So in the words of Bob Geldof “Give us your f***ing money” ;-)ill

I’ll be cutting it off on my shift at the Soup Kitchen on Nov 21st.

From 12th November 2018, the Newbury Soup Kitchen is a division of the HAVEN (West Berkshire) homeless charity. It is a voluntary organisation providing help and support to the Newbury homeless, rough sleeper community and those less fortunate than others. The primary operation is a friendly drop-in centre for vulnerable adults who perhaps have mental health issues or are just lonely. All are greeted with hot food and drinks every Thursday evening. A warm welcome awaits people who wish to socialise, find support and enjoy a hot meal.”
