Lunch Positive to celebrate 8th birthday!

Besi Besemar May 19, 2017

Lunch Positive, the HIV charity that provides a weekly lunch club for people with HIV will celebrate its 8th birthday on Friday June 9 from the Lunch Club at Dorset Gardens Methodist Church.

All members are invited to attend, including those who go along regularly and those who go less frequently or haven’t been for a while.

The entire volunteer team will be putting together an extra special celebration meal which will also mark the first time use of the newly refurbished kitchen at the church.

The meal is free to everyone and promises to be something very special. The charity trustees will also be at the lunch club to meet members, socialise and talk about plans for the future.

Lunch Positive’s birthday falls at the end of National Volunteers Week. The charity has been built upon the involvement of members and an amazing commitment and motivation of people volunteering, giving their time for the benefit of their community.

A team of more than 30 people currently volunteer to deliver the weekly lunch club, as well as fundraise and actively support wider LGBT+ and HIV community events.

Service Manager Gary Pargeter said: “Some very special acknowledgments will be given to all the volunteers, members and helpers that have supported Lunch Positive over the years, giving thousands of hours of their time year-on-year.”
