I would like to say thank you for sustaining me with every day food and clothing and giving me the will to live.
I was at a very low ebb, even worse than that. I would like to bless the Vineyard and those that work there.
"I cannot praise the Vineyard enough! It has been a God send to me whilst I was homeless and even now that I have
a roof over my head I still drop in frequently. The staff are ace!"
"After years of visiting the Vineyard I never really appreciated the good the people do for those who want company and
help. The staff and volunteers are always courteous, and if you are in need they will oblige without a thank you.
I for one really do appreciate all that I have received."
“I cried when I got home and unpacked all the food you gave me today. Thank you again for the generosity of all those who donate.
"Just to say a very big thank you for making a horrid, humiliating experience recede into the background
because of the care and kindness shown to me yesterday.
Bless you for the work you do to help those of us who have hit difficult times we never anticipated."
