Success stories

Hanging Heaton Luncheon Club

The Hanging Heaton Luncheon Club received a grant of £240 from our Surviving Winter appeal. The group cooks for forty local people, twice every week. The club has an incredible group of 36 volunteers, who work on a 6-week rota.

In addition to insurance costs, the club desperately needed some new pans. They had been using the existing catering equipment every week for the past 13 years; many of the handles were now loose and were a danger to kitchen staff. Learn more about our funding programmes.
