Gloucester City Mission’s winter shelter opened on 1 December and is operational every night until 31 March 2022. The shelter would very much welcome some volunteers to come and cook for the clients in the evening. The maximum number of clients is 12 and food can be prepared at the shelter or cooked off-site and brought in for serving.
Typically, volunteers are needed between 8 pm and 10 pm.
Cheltenham Open Door will be offering meals and services on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
Churches Together in Cam and Dursley is running ‘Friends at Christmas’ which is a Christmas lunch for people who are alone on Christmas Day and they are still looking for volunteers. Email for details.
