Laurence's Larder provides a warm welcome and fresh food for those who struggle to make ends meet in our community and beyond.
Before we had to close temporarily during lockdown it was open every Tuesday and Thursday from 10am to 1.30pm to anyone in need - no referral needed.
We provided a three-course meal which was typically soup, a pasta or other favourite such as cottage or fish pie, followed by a pudding such as crumble and custard or fruit salad. For those in even greater need, we provide dried and tinned food for a few days to take away.
We also have clothes washing facilities and a shower as well as a clothes bank available during our opening hours.
People of all faiths, and none, are welcome.
It costs £1,000 a month to run the charity, despite generous donations from our supporters (below). We welcome donations of money, food and adult clothing.
The larder, which is a registered charity (1185983), is managed by Stephen Chamberlain who can be reached via firstname.lastname@example.org.
