Meals on Wheels for Dover!
Project Category: Registered charity
The Riverside Centre provides freshly cooked, nutritious meals to many of Dover’s older people at our building in the Maison Dieu gardens. Now, we want to get our dinners out into Dover! Many people who could benefit from the services offered here simply aren’t able to travel outside of their homes, and find preparing a hot and healthy meal very difficult. We want to address this growing social issue, and are therefore setting up a Meals on Wheels service to provide a lifeline to those who most need it. We also wish to provide an assisted shopping service.
Before we can get the meals out into the community though, we need some wheels! Riverside is actively raising funds to obtain and maintain a small minibus with a tail lift. This would not only allow us to deliver the meals service, but also an affordable transport service for our patrons – allowing them to get to the centre without relying on expensive taxis or the kindness of friends and relatives.We would also be able to operate trips outside of Dover, giving our patrons a rare and much-treasured day outside of their normal environment.
