Magic moment in the Waterloo team as the team found Mario from Romania again (picture). On the previous night Mario had asked the team for a mobile phone so he could call his wife and hear the first sounds of their new born baby. Privileges such as these we take for granted…that is why being out there and connecting is such a humbling experience every time.
I am really pleased to report we have drafted in a very close friend and a top top professional in her field Julia Pennington to assist the hostel team (Jamie, Louise, Brian and Shazi) in getting the best support structure around the homeless friends we are sponsoring with hostel accommodation. I hope you will all get to meet Julia one day…a force of nature with a heart of gold.
On that note, the feedback we have received from new volunteers this week has been so positive. I am really in awe of how the more experienced Skywalkers have managed to welcome these new family members with strong guidance and open arms.
Tomorrow our homeless friends are in for two extra treats. AM we will distribute 100 delicious breakfasts from chef Richard Corrigan’s Bentley’s restaurant. This is the official start of this format which we intend to run Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Then at our evening event we are adding crepes from Chelsea Creperie to the menu.
