We’re trying to find out how many Wingham residents would be interested in Meals on Wheels being delivered to them from The Deal Centre for the Retired (Age UK) and also for drivers to deliver the meals from Deal at lunchtimes in their own cars. Drivers are recognised as volunteers but would be employed on a zero hours contract, paid the minimum wage, and a fuel allowance would be paid to them in recognition of their time and resources.
The meals would be delivered in foil trays transported in heated, insulated boxes and are all freshly cooked on the premises and would cost £8.00 for a main course and pudding. Different dietary needs can be catered for and they are provided six days a week excluding Saturday and can be opted into on different days as required.
Please contact Kerry, Parish Council Clerk, on 01227 722189 or e: firstname.lastname@example.org if interested in either buying the meals or delivering them. Kerry is collating the information on behalf of Age UK
