ESH are proud to support The London Soup Kitchen

The ESH team have been helping out at the The London Soup Kitchen on Tottenham Court Road over recent months and continue to do so. Having the chance to help, in what feels quite a small way, is humbling and something we all wanted to do in Central London when we witness homelessness in our own backyard every day. The charity is run by an inspirational group of people, and, like all charities, it relies on the compassion and kindness of others to provide meals to those in need. In our brief experience though, not only is it the basics of food, water, clothing and warmth that are required, but also in many cases simply recognition for being human. The ability to have a conversation with someone, when most of the time all around people simply ignore or walk past, is seemingly immeasurable. If this is something you or your company would like to get involved with, then please see details on their website at
