Help welcome guests to our all night cafe for the homeless

Support volunteers needed for New Beginnings Reading in RG1

New Beginnings Reading have a vision to open an alcohol-free pub serving free food and drinks for Reading’s homeless and needy. We have been working hard to transform the disused Queens Arms pub in Great Knollys Street into a place for all kinds of activities to serve the local community and those in need who have a connection to Reading.

We are almost ready to open our all night cafe, serving a late meal and offering a place of safety to those in need.

We are seeking volunteers who will help set-up the cafe ahead of guests arriving, welcome guests to the cafe, help register new attendees and provide a listening ear to those who would like to talk.

In return we can offer you the chance to join a dedicated team of volunteers motivated to make a real difference to the lives of local people in need.
