The Yalding and Laddingford supper club was launched in 2017 to provide a monthly, two course meal for the lonely and vulnerable people in our Parish, this is held in Yalding Village Hall.
Since the Coronavirus pandemic we have been able to supply our Supper Club at home service by using our local pubs (The George, The Chequers and The Walnut Tree, and Yalding Tearooms), however, this is a more expensive option and our money is running out.
We supply a cooked meal for between 15/20 people monthly and thanks to the generosity of our pubs and tearooms we spend around £7.50 per head.
Each one of the companies who have supported us supply their meals at a reduce cost, they all wanted to do at cost or donate free but it was important to us that we also support them during the pandemic.
We are also grateful for the grants we have received and the private donations, including Orchard View Garage and Yalding Club.
Any money you can donate will be gratefully received and very well used.
