The Worthing Churches Homeless Projects celebrated it’s 20th anniversary this month and they held an event at Food on 9th May to commemorate this.
Over the last 20 years Worthing Churches Homeless Projects have helped several thousands of people, this would not have been possible without the support of the local community; together they have made Worthing a better place to live and that is worthy of being commemorated. Proto Restaurant Group were more than happy to put on the event at Food and it could not have been possible without the generosity of Andy Sparsis, owner of Proto Restaurant Group and Food restaurant.
Delicious Canapes were served at the event
The charity was started in 1990 by local Christians who provided soup, blankets and sleeping bags to local homeless people on Worthing seafront. Gradually over the years, this Christian charity has grown to include 5 projects, 50 staff members and over 150 volunteers. The Homeless Project provides a comprehensive pathway of care to those living on the streets and guides them to an independent life.
Worthing Churches Homeless Projects believe that everyone has the right to a home, regardless of the difficulties and issues they may face, or have faced in their lives. Proto Restaurant Group supports this and believes in showing those who need our help that the wider community is there to support them and offer them hope for a better future.

The projects work with some of the most vulnerable and excluded individuals in Worthing and the work they undertake is crucial. They offer accommodation and specialist support for those living in such accommodation to ensure a full recovery. Their work provides a platform for homeless or insecurely housed individuals to achieve sustainable, independent living.
Proto Restaurant Group is proud to be involved with this worthwhile and incredible charity and were more than happy to support their cause by holding the event at Food last week which was a huge success raising £1030 for the charity.
