Supporting the Vulnerable
As many of you have seen through our social media pages, we have teamed up with Open Kitchens to provide free meals for those in need within our community.
Open Kitchens has been working with restaurants across the UK during the Covid-19 pandemic to help combat the national food shortage. Helping to reopen restaurants, who had to close their doors in March, to utilise their empty kitchens and produce free meals to those in need.
