Mid Suffolk Voluntary Organisations Forum- Awarded a grant of £2,000 towards the cost of Redwoods lunch club.

The Grant enabled the organisation to add the Soup & Sandwich (Now called Soup & Chat) sessions to the Redwoods Lunch Club project. The Soup & Chat sessions ran successfully in the year to November 2016 and continues to do so. The Lunch Club provides healthy food and good company for older people on the 2nd and 4th Monday in the month and the Soup & Chat sessions provide a homemade soup, bread and cake in a more informal setting on the 1st Monday in the month.
The main meal for the Lunch Club is provided by an external caterer. Meat and vegetarian options are always provided. The volunteers make the puddings to follow the main meal and the healthy soup made with seasonal vegetables. These are always well received and we receive many compliments about the quality of the meals. The grant helped pay for the provision of food by the caterer and purchases for the puddings and soups made by the volunteers, plus the running costs of the Redwoods venue at Red Gables.
