* Welcome to The Hot Choc Mob! We're currently not going out to avoid inadvertently passing on any infection to those we meet, but please do check back and we'll let you know here when we're next able to. In the meantime, stay safe and well and hope to see you on a mobbing soon! *
We're a friendly group of volunteers who meet regularly to engage with the homeless community on the streets of London. Our purpose is to interact with rough sleepers and other vulnerable members of society, while providing hot drinks, food, clothing and a chat! The Hot Choc Mob was created by volunteers from a wide range of the wonderful groups that regularly help homeless people in London. The number of people we see on the streets has risen drastically over the past few years, and we felt that this group would offer an opportunity for all those who'd like to help them. Our main objective is to create a little warmth in the lives of people whose daily existence can be a struggle. We seek to approach all those we meet with an open-minded spirit of empathy and solidarity, and are not affiliated with any charity or religious ideology. The Hot Choc Mob's meetups involve going out in small groups, led by one of our walk leaders, for an hour or so, during which we share the provisions we have and talk with/listen to those we meet. And afterwards, we like to regroup at a local pub for a catch-up! If you'd like to help, but can't make our regular Tuesday outings, our friends the Pavement People (also on Meetup) go out on other days of the week. Please feel free to join us, and if you have any questions, you can message any of our group leaders or text Lynn on 07970983340. We look forward to seeing you on a mobbing soon!
