is growing at St Teresa’s community room every Monday between 12.30 and 2 pm . We offer a free hot meal to those in need followed by tea and homemade cakes. Last Monday we catered for 21 people. It is an ecumenical endeavour with 5 teams (one team per week) catering for up to 30 people. We really appreciate the number of volunteers who have stepped up to the mark to cater for our guests from across the parish and from other churches locally with some really fantastic food.
However organising a project of this scale does involve a cost so we would be grateful of any regular financial contributions, however small to keep the project running. If you’d like to help financially you can sponsor a meal on a regular basis (£3 a head) or you could just make a one off donation. Also if you are aware on anyone who may appreciate the offer of a free meal please do let us know or invite them along on a Monday. Please do get in touch with Jane Manfield email@example.com, Tracey Burrows on 01737 645217 or tracey.burrows@reigatebanstead. gov.uk if you’d be happy to donate or sponsor a meal on a regular basis. Please do feel free to come and visit us on a Monday and stop for a chat any time over a cup of tea.
