In addition to the weekly Friday HIV Lunch Club, Lunch Positive will be running a monthly Sunday Lunch for people with HIV starting November 2.
THE SUNDAY LUNCH will be held at the Lunch Positive hired venue, Dorset Gardens Methodist Church and will take place on the first Sunday of each month during the autumn and winter.
The idea for the Sunday Lunch came from existing members, and people who want to share a meal with peers but can’t attend the Friday Lunch Club.
The Sunday Lunch will be a safe and supportive space, where an enjoyable and affordable three course meal is shared. The project is being delivered entirely by volunteers from Lunch Positive and MCC Metropolitan Community Church. People coming along for lunch are all welcome to get involved with helping if they would like.
Gary Pargeter, Volunteer Project Manager, said: “We’re incredibly pleased to be offering an extra opportunity for peers to enjoy a good meal, meet others in a confidential environment, and benefit from spending time together. It’s a space for community, where people can be themselves. Our biggest hope is that the monthly Sunday Lunch will attract people who are unable to come along on Fridays as well as our existing members, and people we haven’t seen for a while.
“Everyone with HIV is welcome! We know that coming along to something new is not always easy for everyone, and as well as our members we have a team of friendly and approachable volunteers to help people feel comfortable. Please come and join us!”
