Open House volunteer Tony with PC Stringer

The benefits provided to the local community by Sunderland Open House and the significant difference it has made to those in desperate need have been acknowledged during a visit by a local community support officer.

When PC Stringer popped in to visit guests and volunteers at the drop-in café, he had nothing but praise for the work being carried out by the volunteers running the project.

"I've often seen the people here in a very different light as they can lead chaotic and boisterous lives on the street," commented PC Stringer. "Everyone is doing a wonderful job here and Open House definitely seems to have a remarkable calming and relaxing effect on those who come along."
