"I would just like to say thank you to all of the staff on duty today. I called into the Lighthouse for a breakfast feeling a little low in mood and after spending half an hour in the atmosphere and company of everyone here, I feel so much better. Cheers"

"Without the Lighthouse service I would not have coped during my six week homeless stint (living in a tent). The staff and volunteers were all friendly and helpful. It was a pleasure to come here, get fed and have good company. The washing and showering facilities were a godsend too!!"

"The staff and volunteers have been a great help to me. They made me food and coffees. I also have had some good chats with most of them. I would like to thank all the staff and volunteers - I unfortunately don’t remember their names but without their help I wouldn’t have eaten or been warm during my time on the streets."
