Chair of Bath Community Awards

We are super delighted to announce that our very own Sunday Centre volunteer Lesley Neal was awarded ‘Highly Commended’ at this year’s Chair of Bath Community Awards.

The Sunday Centre is the only one of its kind in Bath offering homeless and vulnerable adults a place to come off the streets and enjoy a hot Sunday lunch each week. Thanks to the generous contribution of Lesley and the other Sunday Centre teams, this entirely volunteer-led service has been helping people in need for over 25 years (even before we officially became a charity).

Today, approximately 40 people have lunch each week at the Sunday Centre, and sometimes it is their first point of contact with Genesis Trust; and therefore a vital space and opportunity to introduce visitors to our other projects, where we can offer more long-term support.

We are really proud of Lesley, who is truly an unsung hero in the running of the Sunday Centre, and of all the work that the Sunday Centre does. They have helped hundreds of people in need over the years and deserve to be recognised for their efforts.
