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 February on referral from our partner organisations and also by request.

You can fill in a request form here.  We prioritise the FREE MEALS based on circumstance and need and if there is space available you will be informed.  FREE MEALS REQUEST FORM.


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 January 13 2021.

This had been funded by National Lottery Awards for All Grant.  Thanks to National Lottery players for your support.

Would you like to volunteer to help?  Just click here and fill in the form.
