Bobby’s Big Heart & St Vincent de Paul Society  

Waymade Capital (associated with The Shanta Foundation) have supported Bobby’s Big Heart who are based in South East Essex.  They are a local charity that primarily provides help in the form of food parcels and basic household goods and other help for individuals and families.

The goods are purchased by Waymade Capital and delivered directly to Bobby’s Big Heart. This enables them to provide immediate support to those in need who approach them directly for help or are referred from a network of GP’s and care workers.  The help is extended to families not only for food parcels but also through provision of mental health and domestic violence related support. Bobby’s Big Heart connect those in need directly to social workers and other specialist carers and practitioners in the mental health and wellbeing field.

In December 2023 a large collection of toys was delivered by Waymade to Bobby’s Big Heart for families in need.

Through the Shanta Foundation, Waymade Capital has provided food support to St Vincent de Paul Society which is part of an International Christian Charity voluntary network.  The charity is dedicated to tackling poverty in all forms by providing practical assistance to people in need.  They offer a friendly, non-judgemental and unique “wrap around” service tailored to the needs of the individual or to families who are homeless, living in poverty or suffering from mental illness in the Southend on Sea area.   

Donations made have helped restock their depleted food bank and helped provide nutritious hot meals to over 300 people a week in their new kitchen at the Southend centre.    

Waymade Capital and The Shanta Foundation will continue to work on an ongoing basis with this remarkable charity turning concern into action.
