A warm welcome and hot food for those struggling
to make ends meet

It’s only with your support that The Larder can continue to help those who need us. Every donation we receive goes a long way, by providing those who come to us in need with a hot meal, food essentials,  a shower,  somewhere to wash their clothes and someone to chat to.

We are very grateful for the generosity of local people who give us food, clothes and their time, but we still need your help. Your gift today, will mean that we can help more people in need tomorrow.

Where are we?
Following our successful re-opening of Laurence's Larder on 17 September - for take-out meals only - we are continuing the service under the new restrictions but will no longer be serving hot food. This followed a detailed assessment to ensure we were taking all suitable precautions. We are currently offering the take-out service one day a week, on Thursdays.

The organisations below give us generous support and some of them have done so since we opened our doors. We simply couldn't help our guests without their help. 

Please make a donation to help us to keep the larder going at this time of great need in our community and beyond. Donors help us pay for electricity, staple ingredients and essential equipment.

Or email us at info@laurenceslarder.org.uk if you can help with donations of food, clothes or your time.
