Kingsway Care Renews Sponsorship for Third Year
Kingsway Care is delighted to renew it’s sponsorship for the third year to support the fantastic local, Food and Friendship Luncheon Club in Hove. The community-based charity has been providing low-cost shared meals for older people and adults with learning disabilities since 2012.

Volunteers Have Fun Too!
Caroline and her regular volunteers were dab hands at prepping a fabulous Christmas lunch for 70+ people with sensory impairments or learning difficulties. The kitchen was a sea of ‘pink’ volunteers calmly working together (some since 8am) to not only deliver the delicious lunch but also a party atmosphere full of fun and excitement for the guests. We even got to sit down and enjoy the Christmas lunch too!
TJ provided the entertainment, singing a range of Christmas and party tunes and we all had fun finding the raffle prize winners and whizzing around with the prize trolley delivering gifts.
Washing up was done in double quick time, thanks to the number of volunteers helping out.
Volunteers come from the local community and bring a wealth of life experience, skills, and kindness to their roles. They have volunteers aged from 18 to 84. If you’ve been inspired to give back and volunteer to help Food and Friendship Luncheon Club provide social connections and a jolly decent meal, please contact Caroline. You won’t regret it!
