R2R Volunteers Step Up

R2R currently are the only help to people who would otherwise be dying of exposure on the streets of Poole this week. On 2 March the Salvation Army was unable to get into Poole to provide their weekly Friday breakfast for rough sleepers. R2R opened up and served poached egg on toast that morning! They were open again from 2.00-4.00pm and held their regular drop in at 7.30pm.

Because of the severe weather the homeless, who accepted the offer, slept in the Skinner Street URC hall on Thursday night and again ton Friday. R2R and its clients are very grateful to URC Skinner Street for enabling this to happen!
