Link Lunch Club – Case Study

Since lockdown this fantastic organisation have been unable to hold their weekly Link Lunch Club at St. Luke’s Church Centre  for around 55 elderly and vulnerable local Beccles and Worlingham  residents. With the relevant permission from the District Council and the church authorities the team, lead by church warden Fran Tuck,  have been able to ‘go mobile’ and offer those vulnerable, shielding or self-isolating, a weekly take away meal, delivered to their door.

The grant has allowed them to buy food, disposable boxes and bags, the appropriate PPE and contribute towards the petrol for the volunteer delivery drivers. Many of their beneficiaries have not been out since the start of lockdown, so have no money.  The group are able to offer these meals free of charge to those that need it most.


We are so grateful for the generous grant from the Suffolk Community Foundation Coronavirus Fund, because it has enabled us to not only provide meals, but also maintain a contact with our elderly and vulnerable people, via the delivery drivers, and also phone each ‘diner’ every week, which gives us the opportunity to ask if they need help in any other way.
