The initiative is opened up by volunteers every Friday and offers second hand goods and tea and toast, along with support and friendship for those who need it. All proceeds go back into the scheme and the community. Volunteers also provide clothes and household items to help asylum seekers and refugees get back on their feet and signpost vulnerable people to local agencies for further help.
