Easter Miracle?

Home » News » Easter Miracle?

Miraculously, Easter morning breakfasts eaten in Aylesbury fed the homeless in London. This was thanks to the SOS Group (Sometimes On Sundays). They served up their now traditional Easter morning full English breakfast to 70 people before the main morning service. The resultant £350 income they donated to Whitechapel Mission who help to feed, clothe and minister to the needs of London's increasing number of homeless people.
Serving and clearing 70 hot breakfasts between 9am and the 10.30am service is a logistical challenge. especially as the menu on offer was eggs, bacon, sausage, mushrooms, black pudding, hash browns, baked beans, toast and marmalade and tea or coffee. Organisers Lynn and Derek Bernstone explained that everyone had their one job to do and it all worked well. Some items such as sausages and mushrooms were cooked by people at home and then kept warm in the fleet of hostess trolleys warmed up the night before. "Eggs are all freshly cooked and bacon is done quickly on George Foreman grills", said Lynn. Derek added, "Vegetarians are catered for too and there is a great hubbub of chatter showing the strong feeling of fellowship that we carry through to the joy of this special service." The fame of the breakfasts has seen numbers grow to this year's record of 70, with regulars already looking forward to next year.
