"It was a real joy to have her helping to cook the evening meal for our clients, and meeting with staff and volunteers to hear their stories."

With the support of Woking Borough Council, the charity was able to access the Woking Hotel which adjoins HG Wells Conference Centre offering 22 clients their own room with ensuite, to ensure they did not rough sleep. An additional ten beds have also been built in one of the empty halls at HG Wells.
