Bowness and Windermere Community Care Trust
CORONA VIRUS SUPPORT RESPONSE -
Following the success of our scheme in 2020 and early 2021 ( around 10,000 meals delivered) and with the ongoing assistance of the team at The Lamplighters Dining Room we are continuing to provide a once weekly delivery of hot meals to an identified number of residents within our community who continue to be impacted by the consequences of COVID-19
Additionally we are now inviting up to 20 local residents to attend Lamplighters Dining Room for a sit down two course meal with tea/coffee every Wednesday lunchtime. Helping people to reintegrate after Covid is extremely important and this excellent scheme has been substantially facilitated by funding provided via Cumbria County Council.
