We love our volunteers! #volunteersweek

This week has been #volunteersweek and to celebrate we've been speaking to some of the amazing people who make up our dedicated team of volunteers to find out their 'St. Augustine's story'. We're hoping to share these over the coming weeks. In the meantime we're saying goodbye to Richard, one of kitchen volunteers who has been helping with lunch on Tuesday's for 4 years! As many of you know, we have a brilliant team of cooks and kitchen assistants who provide a hot, nutritious meal for the community 4 days a week. Thank you for everything that you do!
