Helping Hands

Every day at Victoria station, whether its on my way to work, the gym, lunch etc I pass at least 5 homeless people. I always carry food with me; 1) Because I am always hungry… and most importantly; 2) To make sure I can give it to someone who needs it more than I.

Today I have been going around the station dropping off food packages to every homeless person possible. As my current office

and place of day to day work is located very close to an organisation named ‘The Passage’, which is on St Vincent’s Centre, Carlisle Place, London. I have decided to donate to this organisation. ‘The Passage’ runs London’s largest voluntary sector resource centre for homeless and vulnerable people: each day they help up to 200 men and women. 

The 40-bed hostel, Passage House, was officially opened on 1 March 2000. In the year 1st April to 31st March 2013, 23 residents completed a planned move on. They welcome and treat clients with respect and dignity, and find out what they need and want. They offer professional and appropriate advice and help according to the client’s needs and aspirations. An action plan is agreed with clients which is time limited with the aim of supporting clients out of homelessness.

It costs over 4million a year to The Passage going, only 40% is funded from statutory sources; the rest comes from donations from individuals, church organisations, charitable trusts and companies.

I think this organisation is fantastic and I am very happy to get behind it.

The Goring Hotel in London’s Belgravia

The Goring Hotel in London’s Belgravia!

The Great British Summer is finally HERE! It’s time for some fun in the sun 🙂 yesterday I enjoyed a lovely ‘long’ lunch and a game of Croquet oooo I do say. Where else can Croquet be played in London you might ask?… Try the Goring!!

I had the Smoked Salmon & Devilled Eggs to start followed by an amazing Lobster Omelette – a MUST try! It was not too heavy, quite creamy but very moorish. OH and the Chef was definitely not stingy with the Lobster.

“The Goring Hotel is an historic luxury hotel in London’s Belgravia district, famed for its independent style and modern British cuisine”.

The Goring stands out from the crowd as London’s last family-owned luxury hotel, with over a hundred years of passion for hospitality and commitment to service. Staff are trained to the highest standards of hospitality – always retaining a timely touch of fun. At The Goring, guests and made to feel at home, and after 105 years, they still continue to surprise and delight even the most frequent of guests…which I seem to have become!!

The Goring enjoys an enviable location in Belgravia. With Buckingham Palace, Knightsbridge, Mayfair and the Royal Parks all located nearby, it’s perfectly placed for shopping or theatre, work or play.
