A very BIG thank you to all our funders and donors

After a challenging year with lots of changes, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of the organisations and individuals who have supported Big Breakfast Plus and donated almost £37,000 to support our work with homeless people in Swindon.

As winter draws in and we’re living with Tier 2 restrictions we are keeping in touch with our guests through links with other agencies and Swindon Borough Council.


COVID restrictions mean we’re still not able to return to the Haven for the time being, but we have been handing out vouchers to our would-be guests, which they can exchange for a breakfast at Greggs. Thank you Greggs for helping out.


We are busy making plans so that we are ready to re-open as soon as we can. And we really hope our volunteers and supporters are staying safe and well.
