On Tuesday 26th June, a team of volunteers from Marks and Spencer came to the London Jesus Centre and put on a Community Feast lunch for the homeless. They worked together to cook up a delicious meal of burgers, chips and salad, they distributed clothes and helped run the drop-in all day.
The Community Feast is a great way of creating a welcoming, fun, relaxed and inclusive environment. If you would be interested in attending, keep an eye on our Twitter page for updates, and if you would like to volunteer next time to help make this happen, click here.
One drop-in visitor commented “Thanks to everyone at M&S for an amazing day with beautiful burgers! We were spoiled and treated like kings and I forgot that I was homeless!”

This was all part of Marks and Spencer’s initiative to make a difference in the community. They have been working in partnership with Neighbourly, sending out thousands of volunteers to local charities across the country.
We really enjoyed working with the team of volunteers that came to the Centre and are very grateful for their support. Look up the hashtag “#marksinaction” to see what other projects they’ve been supporting.
