Square Meals from Uxbridge Centre

Middlesex Masons continue to support their local communities in these difficult times, with the latest initiative seeing Uxbridge Masonic Centre working with local charity SUFRA – NW London (working on the front-line in the fight against hunger and poverty) to help feed provide at least one hot meal per day for local people who are homeless, afflicted by extreme poverty or socially isolated and vulnerable.

Due to COVID-19 the Uxbridge centre was closed, but with no hungry brethren to feed, and a fully functioning kitchen and staff available, Uxbridge Masons decided that they could help others.

They are working with SUFRA – NW London to distribute the meals, and also with Hillingdon Council to ensure all health and safety is fully compliant. Currently 300 meals a day are being provided.

The Centre is looking for volunteers to help achieve its aim of packing meals and only a couple of hours in any day is needed.

If you are interested in helping please contact Gary Collins on 07973 718776, or at garycollins64@msn.com.

 

During this time of Pandemic there are unusual and demanding circumstances and the natural tendency of Masons is to help those in need.

The initiative by the Uxbridge Centre is one way of realising that tendency and deserves full support as a tangible way of assisting those most in need and the meals provided will make a real difference to the recipients.

With grateful thanks to Media Team Writer Ian Mitchell for the write up.
