Katrina Kitto, of Tesco’s at Rainham, recently sent us the following letter after experiencing the work being done on a Tuesday evening with the homeless people of Chatham.
Before we started donating all of our food waste I didn’t know a great deal about The Salvation Army or what it did. Well, let me tell you that since meeting Eric (wonderful man) I have learnt a great deal about what it does and all the people it helps. Personally I think its fabulous and a real eye opener indeed.
My store manager and I were invited to go and see what happens to the food we donate. Don’t get me wrong but we were sceptical about what we were going to but it was wonderful and a really lovely thing to be part of. I can’t explain how great the volunteers are and how loved they are by the people they help week in week out. The way they bonded with the homeless was incredible and it was so nice to see them laughing and joking together.
Everything on the night ran so smoothly and it was really impressive. The place is also lovely and well looked after. Everyone made us feel so welcome and this was appreciated. It really is great to be a part of this and to know we are helping hundreds of families. I would just like to say a massive thank-you for letting us be part of it and I plan to help out as much as I can in the future and to spread awareness of all the great things you are doing!
