12.30pm Sunday Lunch in Wesley Hall, LRMC Volunteers needed!

As many of you are aware, the community fridge is open at LRMC on Tuesdays and Thursday.

On a Tuesday morning, the prayer group have started to offer coffee and chat to the folk who come for food. They have found that the mutual support between the users is very beneficial, and that someone who initially was lonely, has recently remarked that she feels she has made a new group of friends. There were 20 for coffee this week. This is wonderful.

So, we would like to start offering coffee and chat for the Thursday session from 1.00pm-2.30pm approx. The lounge is free so all we need are helpers.

If you would be willing to help, it does not have to be every week, please talk to a steward at LRMC.

Thank you.
