The Lunch Club Launch

Posted on: April 4th, 2012

The Wednesday Lunch Club got off to a great start in November 2011 serving hot meals, refreshments and cakes to members of the local community in Wigton.  Prepared and served by Chrysalis members and all for £2.50 per head!

Working in partnership with Age UK and NADT, The Lunch Club operate from the Cafe in the Wigton Market Hall from 12:30 noon every Wednesday.

Their success has attracted some publicity, and on the 29th February 2012 a team from BBC Radio Cumbria turned up to interview customers and staff at the Lunch Club.  This was very exciting, and the interviews were broadcast during the Friday afternoon radio show.

The Lunch Club enables our members to develop skills include planning, food preparation, food safety, catering, waiting on and customer service.  It provides real work experience for our members and the opportunity for them to contribute and support others in the local community.
