‘Please Sir!’ Restaurant Offers Free Food to Homeless Veterans

Latest news from our team at We R Blighty!

One of Kent’s culinary gems, ‘Please Sir!’, known for its fantastic burgers and milkshakes, is stepping up to make a difference in the lives of homeless veterans. The restaurant’s owner, ex-Navy veteran Steve Lawrence, has demonstrated incredible generosity by offering free meals to homeless members of the armed forces community.

Steve Lawrence, a veteran himself, understands the challenges that homeless veterans face and is dedicated to making a significant impact in their lives. Drawing upon his military ethos, his latest initiative underscores ‘Please Sir!’s commitment to supporting the veterans’ community.


Serving up Kent’s best smash burgers and a remarkable array of mouth-watering milkshakes, ‘Please Sir!’ is sure to provide a much-needed culinary treat for those it aims to help. Accompanied by a variety of delicious add-ons, these meals promise not only to satisfy the hunger of the veterans but also offer them a sense of comfort and belonging.

The impact of these meals on the homeless veteran community cannot be overstated. For those striving to get back on their feet, this act of kindness provides more than just a meal. It serves as a gesture of acknowledgement, a nod of respect towards their service, and a beacon of community support.

Providing this service in two locations, Broadstairs and Whitstable, Steve Lawrence extends his committed efforts to combat veteran homelessness by ensuring that no veteran goes hungry in his community.

You can find out more about ‘Please Sir!‘ on their official website or look up their high praises on TripAdvisor.

By this generous act, ‘Please Sir!’ sets a significant example of how local businesses can stand in solidarity with our heroes in uniform. Their efforts will undoubtedly make this holiday season a bit brighter for homeless veterans. And for that, we at We R Blighty, salute Steve Lawrence and the entire ‘Please Sir!’ team.


We’re aiming to raise £20,000 to finance the refurbishment of 3 boats which will become new homes for homeless veterans.
