Elderly residents will continue to benefit from hot meals after a local charity was awarded council funding.
Age Concern Hayling Island secured more than £24,000 from Havant Borough Council’s Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) fund to refurbish its kitchen so that it can be used for years to come.
The charity also raised funds towards the project totalling more than £11,000 and will continue to maintain the facility.
Age Concern Hayling Island is an independent charity run by 35 dedicated volunteers which provides hot meals for local elderly residents.
Each week, the charity runs three lunch clubs. On Mondays, visitors can enjoy freshly made soups, sandwiches and toasties, while on Tuesdays and Thursdays a delicious two-course meal is provided.
Those attending the lunch clubs not only benefit from a home-cooked meal but also get to socialise with other local people. Because of this, the lunches have helped prevent older residents - particularly those who live on their own - from becoming isolated.
