A new homeless shelter at the High Street Methodist Church had been given a helping hand by The Rotary Club of Maidenhead Bridge.
The shelter was opened by the Open Kitchen charity in January and has 12 beds for long-term homeless people or those who find themselves living on the street unexpectedly.
A donation of plates, cups, bowls, glasses and cutlery will help visitors enjoy hot meals.
Open Kitchen trustee, Sue Brett said the support was invaluable.
“Maidenhead Bridge Rotary Club are amazing in the way they support not only Open Kitchen but now The Shelter as well,” she added.
Paramedics were called to the scene of a medical emergency in Maidenhead on Monday morning (June 27).
