Cwmtillery Luncheon Club receives funding from Admiral
A community lunch club for all ages in Cwmtillery has been able to improve the comfort of its members after receiving funding from local employer, Admiral to replace a window.
Cwmtillery Luncheon Club received funding from Admiral after Anthony Bradley, who works in the Customer Services department in Cardiff, applied to the company’s Community Chest scheme. The scheme provides funding for charities and organisations in which staff members or their families are involved.
Anthony’s mother and father help out at the lunch club which gives older people the chance to socialise in a welcoming environment and the club was looking to replace the window in the kitchen area which was causing a build up of condensation.
Anthony said, “I applied for the funding as I wanted to help the club improve its facilities so it can hopefully attract more members of the community to attend.
“The lunch club gives local people, who don’t have many opportunities to socialise, the chance to meet once a month for a home-made, nutritious 3 course meal in friendly surroundings. The new window has a fan which will greatly benefit the kitchen area and improve the conditions for the volunteers when they cook and prepare the food.”
After each meal, the small group of volunteers also host general knowledge quizzes or bingo and occasionally speakers from social services come along to advise the older members about the different benefits and services available to them.
