UPDATE:  The Social Bite Village is now fully-fitted out, with all houses now occupied.  Our customers have been very generous in buying those items which make a house a home: the crockery and cutlery, cushions and throws, etc.

Natasha, from our Edinburgh store, deserves special mention as she has sewn over seventy curtains, being stationed every shift downstairs in our staffroom, busy at work on her sewing machine! Homer has itself donated armchairs, stools, tables, rugs and lights for all ten homes.

WHAT DROVE US TO BEING INVOLVED?  Well, everyone deserves a home.  It doesn't have to be a palace but it needs to be safe, robust and bedded into a community.   This project has grown from grassroots.  It is not a substitute for state responsibility, more a demonstration that many of us want to help and feel that not enough is being done.  You can keep apace of developments via the charity's dedicated website social-bite.co.uk
