Archie Sharp & Mark Downie Kitchen Assistants -- Some think that Archie and Mark have been in the LHM since it started in 1909. They have the heavy responsibility of providing more than 35,000 main meals per year. LHM serve quality meals and their home made soup (free of charge) is legendary. Mark's skills extend to D.I.Y and he saves us huge amounts of expense every year.
Helen Hart Finance Officer -- If you know LHM, you know Helen. Helen is the most well know face in LHM and as well as looking after administration and finance, she meets and greets all our Church and other visitors on arrival to the office.
Angela Vance Support Worker -- Angela has a very busy job looking after any problems which a Service User may bring (and there are many). Problems with housing, benefits and finance are most frequent but the caring way in which she exercises her duties is her greatest asset.
Stephen Mitchell Manager -- Stephen is our Manager and has overall responsibilities for the Day Centre. He brings a wealth of experience to a job which demands involvement with our Service Users, alongside standing back to consider the long term issues which need to be addressed,a true 'spinning plates ' operation.
Claire Herbert Chaplain -- Claire took up her duties as Chaplain in July 2019. This position is all about people and Claire uses her considerable skills to be involved in the day to day personal problems of our Service Users. There is also a need to address the wider issues associated with homelessness and social vulnerability.
