Friday 16th July saw a complete change for some of the Truuli team.
Instead of a 9am team meeting, Olivia, Michael, Leigh and I met at 5:45am at the Whitechapel Mission. Instead of smart wear it was Truuli T-shirts and aprons with name tags on them. Once we were checked in and introduced to the lovely team it was all hands on deck for the us to prepare the kitchen and the place to serve the homeless and those in need.
7am the shutters went up. Michael and Leigh on Tea and Coffee duty with Olivia serving biscuits. I was in background helping the chef prepare the food for the cooked full English breakfast. By 7:30 it was time for shutters to go down whilst we change the set up and get ready to serve cooked breakfast. Michael and Olivia are taking orders and serving the hot food accompanied by Leigh on cereal and porridge duty. Once again I was in the background, this time ensuring everyone was replenished at all times. From 7:45 until 11 we were rotating and changing roles and ensuring all hands were on deck at all times.
The atmosphere and energy in the building was second to none and there was such a positive spirit and drive to help. The staff’s length of service ranged from seven months to as long as 16 years but one common factor within them all was their will to help and personal affection with those in need. Charley was able to reel off a lot of people’s preferences before they could even step forward! I also feel the same could be said for those who we served whom greeted each other in enthusiastic ways and socialised whilst enjoying their food before going about their day.
For me it was such a rewarding day and left me with a different kind of satisfaction at the end of the day, very heart warming. The team and I were able to connect and engage with people of all walks of life. I also gained a sense of unity and care between those in need. For me it was beautiful day to help out and I can’t thank Michelle and the team enough for letting us join them for the day… Hopefully they will have us back soon!

“When you speak with any home owner the hardest part about buying a home or getting into a position to buy a home is raising the deposit. We live in a society today where for the average person your cost of living is so high you do not have enough money to save as much you would require each month (especially in London).

How to prepare your property for sale, if you want to take advantage of the current Stamp Duty Holiday
