Free Meals To Anyone Wanting a Little Helping Hand
We are delighted to announce that we are able to continue our FREE MEALS service thanks to National Lottery Awards for all grant of £9975 and due to generous donations from other businesses and foundations also. Thanks to National Lottery players for your support to the needy in our community in this difficult time.
Our FREE MEALS offer is available through to September on referral from our partner organisations and also by request.
Sometimes the hardest thing for us all to do is to receive a little helping hand from time to time.
It’s not a sign of weakness but strength because we all need a helping hand at some point in our lives.
We are all in this together and we are coming together to try and help in some small way. The sharing of what we have with others is what binds communities together and makes them stronger.
With that in mind we are offering free meals to those in need for 4 weeks from 1st June 2020 to 28th June 2020.
This had been funded by National Lottery Awards for All Grant. Thanks to National Lottery players for your support.

- Use alcohol based hand rub where available if no access to soap and water.
- Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid direct contact with people that have a respiratory illness wherever possible.
- Avoid using personal items (e.g. mobile phone) of people that have a respiratory illness wherever possible.
