Last Saturday 28th July 2018 Bridges Of Hope (boh) who run the food and clothing station on North Earl Street/ Talbot Street, here in Dublin oversaw a huge increase in the amount of homeless people turning up seeking help. Hundreds of people from all walks of life turned up seeking some kind of help either seeking food, clothing, sleeping bags, toiletries, etc.
There was plenty of food on hand just as well as the crowds just kept arriving keeping all the volunteers on their toes and very busy indeed. Food which was donated by various volunteers, business, and people in general included home made Dublin Coddle, Bacon & Cabbage, Pudding & Sausages, Spaghetti Bolognese, Chicken Curry & Rice, Cooked Turkey & Ham, Sandwiches, Cakes, Chicken Burgers, Crisps, Cakes, Biscuits, plus plenty of Tea, Coffee, Pot Noodles, Hot Chocolate, Pasta Bake, and plenty bottles of still water, soft drinks and sparkling water.
Big love to the 26 volunteers who turned up last Saturday some been their first time to volunteer with us and they include:
Irene Coady Murphy.
Big love and thanks to:
St Ann’s Bakery & Restaurant on Talbot Street/ North Earl Street.
