Ninety seven older people from the South Wye community tucked into turkey at the Kindle Centre on Wednesday 16 December, courtesy of the South Wye Development Trust’s annual Tinsel and Turkey Christmas lunch.
The South Wye Development Trust is a charity and started the community lunches in December 2010 and has continued with these fantastic events, trying to have about six a year.
South Wye Development Trust works in partnership with other organisations and this year they were very grateful for the fantastic support of the ASDA foundation, ASDA Hereford and Cargill who have enabled them to make this year’s event a fantastic success.
Amanda Evans, Kindle South Wye Development Trust Manager and South Wye Regeneration Manager Herefordshire Council, said:
“What we do at the Kindle Centre for the community of South Wye is quite extraordinary, we work really hard and believe in working together to support our community.
If you work together it is surprising what you can achieve. When you see how the community benefit and appreciate it especially at Christmas it really is special!”
Amanda continued, “ASDA Hereford have been fantastic and we really could not have made it so special if it wasn’t for them. Thanks also to our many volunteers who give their time so tirelessly.”
Councillor Paul Rone added:
“I’ve been involved as a trustee of Kindle South Wye Development Trust and before South Wye Regeneration Partnership since 2012.
Being involved in such a well-loved and immensely popular lunch club for over three years, with freshly cooked, nutritious meals served to the wonderful senior members of the south wye community is the most rewarding part of my public service.
I am very proud of being part of a small team that is able to produce results again and again.”
