Few pics from tonight's kitchen… #repost from @scousereach1 . . First and foremost, we would like to wish Dave Moreno a very happy birthday. It was a pleasure to spend the night with you and an added bonus that you shared your birthday cake with the gang 🤣🤣🤣 Dave is a kind hearted person and a valued member of the team. Thank you for choosing to spend your birthday with us and helping the homeless.👌🎉🎂 We would like to also thank @thecakeboxlpool For the chocolate orange cake. It was delicious, it went down a treat. 🍰 They loved it! ❤😋 Our very own volunteer @health_on_the_hob for her cannelli bean and veggie pasta sauce. 🍝 lovely as usual like every meal she cooks. 👌 @the_scouser_photographer for his scrumptious brownies. They flew out! They could'nt get enough of them. I think you're going to have to make double the amount next week! 🙌🍪🍪🍪 Last but not least of our volunteer mentions. Thank you Pat for your scouse. We wouldnt know what to do without you. You're an absoulte angel and a fantastic cook 😇👩‍🍳 As always Greggs donates a big portion of unwanted food every week and we're very appreciative of their continued generosity 💙 It was cold out there tonight on the streets. We managed to hand out hats, gloves, sleeping bags and food to anyone that we came across. We would like to say to everyone who came down tonight and took the time out of their day to help out, that we're constantly overwhelmed by your kindness and your continued support. The homeless out there really do need you. So thank you once again. ☺️ "THERE IS NO EXCERCISE BETTER FOR THE HEART THAN REACHING DOWN AND LIFTING PEOPLE UP" – John Holmes 💫
