Is Amazing! I have only volunteered on one occasion but do intend to help out again.
Here are my thoughts:
Can I just encourage those who would be interested to do so, please share this info to the homeless. In my experience, they may already know of Ace of Clubs and have visited in the past. Not everyone wants help but we can only try.
Example: Met a lovely homeless guy at Sainsburys car park Wandsworth. I wrote down the info. On giving him the paper, found he had already attended in the past and asked to send his greetings to certain named staff. I encouraged him to return, so hopefully he will. He seemed to really appreciate that small piece of paper and tucked it away in his pocket, although he could have tossed it aside as he already knew the address etc.
That's life, we all know there is a better path for us but sometimes we just need a little push, reminder and/or encouragement!
