HRH Duchess of Cornwall 'Virtually' visits The Bevy on Meals on Wheels Week

Published: 5th November 2020

The National Association of Care Catering (NACC) and The Bevy community pub in Moulsecoomb, Brighton, welcomed a very special guest yesterday (4th November). Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall made a virtual visit to the community-owned pub and Bevy Meals on Wheels in support of Meals on Wheels Week 2020.

The royal virtual visit was organised by the NACC as part of our annual Meals on Wheels Week (2-6 November 2020), a national event that raises awareness of and celebrates the UK’s essential Meals on Wheels service that delivers nutritious hot meals to older and vulnerable people in the community and a social lifeline to ease isolation and loneliness.

With the focus on the important frontline role Meals on Wheels services are playing during the Covid-19 pandemic, Her Royal Highness learned more about The Bevy and how it has adapted to continue to support the community in challenging times.

The Bevy, which features in the NACC’s special collection of Meals on Wheels case studies, that was launched Monday has delivered more than 6000 meals, plus additional help and social contact, safely to the doorsteps of those in need during the pandemic.
