Calling all lovers of the Great British Breakfast, or croissants and pastries if you prefer.
Make a date with your friends this winter! Invite them round for breakfast in December, January or February. Ask them for a small contribution and donate the money you raise, no matter how large or small, to Routes to Roots’ annual Big Breakfast appeal.
For the seventh year, we are again joining forces with the Fisherman’s Café on Poole Quay to provide rough sleepers with a hot breakfast. Last year we offered this meal for 18 weeks, sustaining 52 individual homeless people, an increase of 11% over 2014-15. Each breakfast costs £4.50 to provide so this provision alone cost the charity £4054.50 (901 breakfasts eaten).
It costs £4.50 to provide a hot breakfast for a rough sleeper. Could you buy just one guy a breakfast for one day, or a whole week?

Many thanks to the Dorset Community Foundation who have awarded R2R a grant from the Salisbury Diocesan Social Welfare Fund: Round 1 January 2016 of £800. This will go towards the hot breakfast that we provide for verified rough sleepers in Poole through the Fisherman’s Cafe on Poole Quay. This is a very important service during the winter months, allowing the guys a few precious minutes in the warmth and hospitality of such a welcoming cafe.

Gabi of Routes to Roots is celebrating after receiving £3,000 to provide supplies and help feed Poole’s rough sleepers. The donation was proudly awarded by Spectrum Housing Group’s Three Counties Community Forum who recognise charities and local organisations who work within the local community. The application was made to support Routes to Roots’ work with The Fisherman’s Café in Poole Quay, helping to ensure rough sleepers start their day with a hot meal.
Pat Adams, Chair of the Three Counties Community Forum, said; “The Forum receive many applications throughout the year but this particular one caught our attention as Routes to Roots does such worthwhile work within our community. The thought that there are still rough sleepers, cold and hungry, on our streets in Poole is heart-breaking and Spectrum were certainly quick to try and help Routes to Roots where we can.”
