Could You Be a Neston Christmas Dinner Angel?

Published: 12th November 2020 08:00

As part of the wonderful Christmas in Neston programme, Neston Community Youth Centre have hatched a plan to try and ensure that anyone who wants one can access a Christmas dinner this year.

A community Christmas Day dinner has been hosted by volunteers at Parkgate and Neston URC for several years now, but due to the ever-changing restrictions on public gatherings due to Covid-19, this cannot be held this year.

NCYC are stepping into the breach with the Neston Christmas Dinner Angels project, which will seek to match people who need a meal with those willing to cook and deliver it.  Co-ordinator Zaria Shreef said:  "We're looking for people who could make an extra plate of Christmas dinner for someone locally who is either on their own or struggling to enjoy the day.

"We know that many who usually cook for large family gatherings will likely be cooking for less people this year. If that sounds like you, could you spare a couple of dinners?

"We know there are people every year who do not or cannot enjoy a Christmas Dinner whether it is because they live alone and making a full dinner for one is not worth it or because they are struggling to feed a family already.

"We would like to enlist your help in making sure that as many people as possible don't spend the whole day alone or having a miserable time."

If you can help, please sign up here. You can also email zaria@nestoncyc.org.uk for more information.

This is a fantastic gesture to help those who are feeling very isolated at the moment, but please, please follow the governments guidelines for food preparation during this pandemic ensuring very high levels of cleanliness and also It might be worth checking if your neighbours are in a higher risk category, ie over 70, lung conditions, diabetes, weakened immune system, high body mass index, we all need to stay safe and remember to reduce contact during drop off and pick up!

Thanks for your comments Vigiliant, the programme is being developed with the guidance of a similar project that have operated successfully for a number of years.

During the summer months we supported in excess of 700 local people following strict social distancing guidelines and these remain our policy.

All checks on health conditions etc are already made with the addition of allergy information given the nature of the project.

Making a meal for a neighbour is not a new thing. It has gone on throughout history.

A good deed brightens a dark world.
Thank you, in advance, to all the people who will help and support the vulnerable and isolated this Christmas.

Indeed it does and I am blessed to be surrounded by our incredible community who are full of them, before this health crisis but even moreso since. The people of our town and villages never cease to impress and often lift me.

Stay safe and well
