Drop-in Cooks needed

Every week for the last ten years 40–60 people sit down in the Congregational Church Hall to a delicious two course lunch for the princely sum of £3. This is all made possible by a dedicated team of volunteers, and we’d really like to see it continue! The project, an initiative of Churches Together in Oakham and District was begun almost ten years ago. We open every Wednesday to welcome anyone of any age, of all faiths and none, and from every income bracket in the community.  Over the years, many friendships have been formed, lonely people have found company and volunteers enjoy the camaraderie of being part of a very caring community. Would you like to come and help us? We really need a couple more cooks to share the load – professional cooks would of course be wonderful but we know that they are a bit of a rarity, but if you have energy, commitment and basic cooking skills, we will help you do things the Drop In way! … our visitors love sausages, mash and onion gravy! If this is something you think you may be able to help with, come and visit us, see us in action and meet our community, or ring Helen Shea (01572 345706)
