New Beginnings is a charity in Reading that offers food, company and shelter to its guests who are homeless or in need. The charity is run out of a derelict pub close to the town centre. In order to offer its services regularly it needs more volunteers.

It's nice to have a dry roof to sleep under because i'm in a tent at the moment and finding things very hard. >

If the charity's night shelter doesn't find more volunteers it may struggle to continue running at the weekends.
