Lunch club rebuilds links with community

Lunch being served

Community links that have grown and developed since the opening of St Robert's Lunch Club in Fenham, have just helped one local lady find companionship again.

When lunch club volunteer, Lynn Walton was enjoying her usual chat with guests recently, she found out that another local lunch club had closed and someone was struggling to find somewhere else to go.

Names were swapped and details found and soon the lady in question, Moira Hails, was enjoying the conversation, company and fun activities at St Robert's each week.

"Moira was devastated when the other lunch club closed and she no longer had people to socialise with," said Lynn. "Now that there's a place here for her every week, she's over the moon."
