Pastor Mark Hatch

It was a privilege to meet Pastor Mark Hatch, volunteers and those who are homeless in Totnes to hear about the challenges they face providing a vital lifeline to rough sleepers in town. They are shortly to lose their base at St John's Ambulance Hall and I hope will find a new base with support from South Hams District Council. Many homeless people come to Totnes because they feel safer in this community and I was struck by the level of support and friendship offered by Mark and his team at the Soup Kitchen. It is a tribute to the whole team that with support some of those they help are able to get their lives back on track but this takes time and cannot happen at all without a base from which to offer that help.
