It’s only with your support that Laurence’s Larder can continue to help those who need us. Every donation we receive goes a long way, by providing those who come to us in need with a hot meal, food essentials,  a shower and someone to speak to.

We are very grateful for the generosity of local people who give us food, clothes and their time, but we still need your help financially. Your gift today, will mean that we can help more people in need tomorrow.



Real people.
Real transformation.
