Age UK Plymouth launch Holiday Grub Club for over 50s providing childcare to primary school aged children.

Age UK Plymouth have teamed up with Western Power Distribution (WPD) and Localgiving to provide free lunches over the summer holidays for grandparents and over 50s taking on childcare to support their families during the school holidays. As part of WPD and Localgiving’s Community Matters Fund £500,000 will be provided to charities and organisations delivering projects that offer both short-term interventions to stop holiday hunger and longer term support to help reduce food poverty.

Designed to help those over 50 who may be supporting working families during the school holidays, free lunches will be available every Friday during the summer school holidays at Age UK Plymouth’s Mount Gould Centre on Astor Drive. The centre is a 15 minute walk from the city centre, with free parking on site and also accessible via the regular 23 and 24 CityBus service from Royal Parade.

If you are unable to attend one of these lunches due to the time or location, please get in touch and we can provide a voucher for a hot meal from Goodbody's Cafe on Mutley Plain for use Monday to Friday up to the final date of the project Friday 2nd September.
