Ten guests benefitted from our first Friday Food venture of providing a hot meal for people who otherwise wouldn't get one. With the first guests arriving just after 6pm, following the pattern with the Quaker and St Josephs similar events, they were all away before 7pm and the helpers were washed up and ready to leave soon afterwards.
So it was a successful first event, which met the food needs of a variety of people in different situations but all of whom welcomed the opportunity to have hot, wholesome food in what a couple of them described as 'posh' and 'smart' premises. This was doubtless helped by our having just installed our new Harding Trust-funded tables and chairs.
So, a big thank you to all who helped on the evening, those who cooked the food and those who are supporting this project through until its planned seasonal end in April.
