The kindness of people like Ms Eades and her customers is a credit to the UK.
What a shame it has to be used in efforts to balance out the cruelty of people like our Conservative Government and exploitative employers who won’t pay a living wage for a hard day’s work.
A CAFE owner in Leamington is helping to feed the homeless after being inspired by a scheme in the United States.
Sophie Eades, owner of the Mashed Swede cafe in Russell Street, has been encouraging people to buy an extra meal which will then be donated to a homeless or vulnerable person.
She heard about the scheme taking off in America and decided to bring the idea across the Atlantic.
And since it started just before Christmas, generous visitors have donated more than 50 meals at a cost of £5 each.
For each donation a voucher is stuck to a board on the wall and is then used by someone in need to collect a free meal and drink.
People who donate can also take their voucher to give to a someone needing a hot meal.
