At Sufra NW London, I get to be around genuinely selfless people who are all willing to help others in any way possible. It’s a place that brings together people from all walks of life and is one of the most accepting and welcoming environments I’ve been in. Over the last 6 months, I have gained a real sense of belonging to a community and great friendships. Sufra is a brilliant charity and fills an essential gap in London. We need more Sufra-like places everywhere.”  Berrun, Community Kitchen volunteer
