David’s story


I have been a volunteer at the Manna Society since 2004. When I first moved to London, I was shocked to see homeless people on the streets. In my tiny town in Spain, this was not a normal occurrence and I wanted to help in any way that I could, and by giving up some of my time on a Saturday to help out at the Manna Centre in London Bridge, I felt that I was doing my bit.

The Manna Society provides takeaway meals, consisting of a hot dinner and a sandwich from 10.30am to 1pm, 7 days a week. On an average day we are providing 120 meals. About 25% of those using this service are rough sleepers, 30% approx are living in hostels or staying with friends and 45% are in rented accommodation. 34% have no income whatsoever. We also offer a housing and welfare telephone helpline and appointments to see an advice worker in person in our centre.

Please help me reach my goal to support the Manna Society.

All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.

Manna Society

The Manna Centre is open 7 days a week. Before Covid we offered sit in meals but due to the pandemic we are now offering takeaway meals, consisting of a hot dinner and a sandwich. At present we are providing approximately 120 meals per day. In addition to our takeaway meals, we are also providing clothing packages and two showers per day, four days a week. About one quarter of those using our services are rough sleepers, one quarter are living in hostels or staying with friends and the remaining 46% are in rented accommodation. 59% are in receipt of Social Security benefits whilst 34% have no income whatsoever – April 21 statistics.


From April 2020 we have been providing a telephone helpline offering housing and welfare advice. In addition to our telephone helpline, from 16th June 2020 we have been offering clients housing & welfare appointments once again at the centre itself. The client and the advice worker are in separate rooms and converse via laptops. Both advice services operate from Monday to Friday and assist approximately 130 clients per month. More information is available on our website -

We are dependent on voluntary donations to raise 75% of our annual £490,000 budget.
