Attention Londoners!
Come and sit down with us for breakfast.

We know we spend our weeks rushing about, eating on the go – or sometimes not even eating at all – not talking to each other as much as we should; especially at breakfast. At The Connection, we’d like to change that, we’d like to encourage you to stop, and sit, and eat breakfast together. We believe in the old adage that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and so we’re inviting you and your friends, neighbours and colleagues to join us for a Communal Breakfast.

Every morning in August we’ll be setting out and laying up a long breakfast table, where you can hunker in the courtyard behind St Martin-in-the-Fields Church near Trafalgar Square and enjoy a delicious menu prepared and served by our homeless clients.

Proceeds will go towards The Connection’s vital work helping thousands of people every year get off, and stay off, the streets of London. Joining us for breakfast is the equivalent of providing a shower and breakfast for one of our homeless clients – so you and they can both start the day feeling sated and refreshed.

The courtyard will be open 8 – 9am, with breakfast served between 8.15 – 8.45am, so book your tickets and come along with friends, colleagues or on your own and have a proper breakfast and a proper chat!
