The Trustees are pleased to report that lunches continue to be prepared in the

Open Door Centre and delivered free of charge by our amazing volunteers, to vulnerable people in our community three days a week.

The 800th lunch of the free community lunch delivery service was prepared in the Open Door Centre 

during the first week of July 

"For weeks these dishes were the only thing that made my days", said one recipient. "A big thank you to you all for the lovely lunches and the kindness of you all making us feel cared about", said another.

 

In addition, lunches are now also being prepared in Hope Corner and delivered on Tuesdays and Thursdays each week. Check our Facebook page for current updates.
