House of Bread’s mission since it began in 2010 has always been to provide a meal, advice and support, as well as a safe and welcoming place for all vulnerable people in Stafford. Traditionally this has been through satellite events during the week over a short number of hours in rented buildings and churches. With the opening of the HOB CAFE they are able to extend this work out and improve their support. Kara Stanley and Kathryn Hyde took the opportunity to help out at the café over the festive period, during which a hot meal and traditional Christmas Day is hosted. Kathryn and Kara were busy little elves on Christmas Eve, helping to organise donations of food, gifts and clothing, wrapping presents for children and setting up Santa’s Grotto.
