Peat Road Breakfast Club - Glasgow

Over the past two years, more than 400 people have attended a breakfast club at The Hall at Peat Road in Priesthill, Glasgow.

Originally established for only a 10-week period, this thriving club runs for two hours every Tuesday and around 50 people regularly visit for food and conversation. Welfare advice is also available and the opportunity to try activities such as arts and crafts.

John Paul McBride, who has been attending since 2017, said: “It brings people together who wouldn’t normally meet and creates social cohesion. It has become a hub with other organisations attending and people are engaging with them. That support has been invaluable.”

Volunteer Elaine McLean added: “I cook the breakfasts and then chat to people. If somebody is sitting on their own, I’ll introduce them to somebody else. I get a lot of satisfaction out of it.”
