The Breakfast Challenge event at Whitechapel Mission is always a pleasure to be part of, and our visit on the 18th November was no different. The enthusiasm the staff has for the mission allowed our volunteers to have an extremely fun and energising morning, that many of the members of the group noted. It was an extremely busy day for the Mission, due to the wet weather and consistent demand of their assistance. Our volunteers took on many responsibilities and tasks that ranged from cooking all food fit for a perfect English breakfast, serving tea and coffee to the clients all morning, charging any of their phones and finally cleaning the kitchen to a spotless standard and having fun, enlightening conversations with the guests.
Once again, a huge thank you to everybody who took part in this Give Volunteering a Go opportunity, your dedication and hard work is vital for the Mission and is very inspiring to see, especially with that challenging 5:15am start! - Ariane
