Sunday Lunch Club – Volunteers Urgently Needed!

Started in April 2014, our not-for-profit Sunday lunch and social club takes place once a month (currently the first Sunday in the month between 12pm-2pm).  This involves the serving of a cooked Sunday lunch at 12:30pm, followed by tea/coffee.  The aim is to provide a low-cost freshly cooked meal in a social setting, particularly targeted at those members of the community who may live alone but equally to allow families to benefit too.

Our current volunteers have worked extremely hard over the past four years to give up their time on a Sunday to provide this much loved service – understandably they are now ready for a break.  As a result, unfortunately the December Sunday Lunch Club will be their last.  A huge thanks go out to Barbara and her whole team for their dedication over recent years!  Loundsley Green Community Trust would therefore like to invite any other volunteers who may like to take over (anything from planning, preparation/cooking of any of the courses, serving of food, etc.), or run a scaled-down version e.g. a “bring and share” event.  If so, please do contact Paul Davies on 07753 605272 or e-mail secretary@lgct.org.uk.
