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.
Following breakfast at St Luke’s Church Hall on 9th January 2019, Big Breakfast Plus will relocate to new multi-agency hub The Haven on Queens Drive. In this post we’ll share a few more details about our move and answer some Frequently Asked Questions.
October was a busy month for Big Breakfast Plus with 958 breakfast served, that’s an average of 30 breakfasts a day and a 15% increase on meals served in September. We served 138 individuals including 25 new guests who were first time visitors to Big Breakfast Plus.
