Thursday Lunch Club

Thursday Lunch Club

Every Thursday a team of parishioners and members of the local community cook lunch for 38 hungry people. We ask no questions about why they are hungry but provide them with a hot delicious meal in the warmth of Pryors Bank.

Over the past past year some good friendships have developed.
