We provide meals to over 85 older people a week. But our freezer has broken! Can you help us to buy a new freezer to continue our work?

Any additional funds raised will go towards food costs for our weekly lunch clubs for older people.


Our Work

Our Positive Ageing services at Blackfriars Settlement are well known for the friendship and great meals we give our isolated older people. During the Covid crisis in 2020 we provided over 3000 meals. This was enabled by donations from our generous partners in the Blackfriars area: Moorecap, Polaris, Sainsburys, Plan Zhero, the Guild of Fine Foods, Borough Market and the Hilton Bankside.

We are currently running four lunch clubs a week where members who would be otherwise isolated can meet people and have food together. We feed over 85 people a week and are still also delivering food to over 20 older people who are unable to attend our lunch clubs. 

Why a new freezer will make a difference...

Working with our partners enables us to play a part in reducing food waste as well as supporting people with healthy food options that they might not have otherwise. A few weeks ago our commercial freezer stopped working. This limits the amount of food we can collect locally from our partners to distribute to people who need it.

We are fundraising to buy a new commercial freezer for the Settlement. This will enable us to continue our valuable work of providing meals to isolated older people and reducing food waste. 

Thank you for your time and help and we hope to see you at the Settlement in the future to share a meal together.
