Loose Ends provides hot meals and support to homeless and vulnerable people in Newbury.

Loose Ends, which opened its doors in 1990, operates five days a week from its base at Newbury Cricket Club.

As well as providing hot and nutritious meals throughout the week, the charity also gives out basic tins of food and supplies clothing, bedding and toiletries to people in need.

Persimmon Homes employee Lee Farmer presented the cheque earlier this month.

He said: “I’ve been really inspired by the amazing work that Loose Ends does for the local community and I was absolutely thrilled that I was able to secure a further £500 from Persimmon’s employee charity fund.

“I know this will make a huge difference to Loose Ends and will enable them to do even more to help homeless and vulnerable people in Newbury.”

The charity also provides guidance and advice to the people using its services and can help to signpost people to other organisations that can offer support.

Chair of trustees for Loose Ends Diana Lacey said: “We’re thrilled to have received this £500 donation from Lee and Persimmon Homes.

“With the rising cost of living, we’ve seen a noticeable increase in the numbers of people needing a hot meal and support so this money will provide a real boost for us.”
