Lunch club volunteers eager to get started

St Chads and St Roberts volunteers

Just weeks away from opening their own lunch club, three keen volunteers from Bensham shared in lots of useful hints and tips when they visited St Robert's Lunch Club in Fenham.

The three volunteers – Mavis, Jacqueline and Margaret – were bowled over by the warm welcome they received during their visit and came away buzzing with excitement and new ideas.

As last-minute preparations are finalised, people in the area can look forward to the Alive Lunch Club becoming a new focal point in their community, providing somewhere for those who are lonely to meet, socialise and make new friends as well as share a delicious lunch.

The Alive Lunch Club opens in St Chad's Church in Bensham on 3 December and will then be held every Thursday between 11am and 2pm. For more information or to book a place, ring Corpus Christi church on 0191 477 1428.
