Happy National Friendship Day!


Jess & Claire 2015

This Sunday, 2nd August is “National Friendship Day.” So what a better time to start getting to know some of your neighbours by sharing a home cooked meal and starting a new friendship?

Casserole Club helps bring people together over the dinner table by putting volunteers who like cooking in touch with others who would benefit from a home cooked meal every now and then.

Are you a keen cook who’d like to give back to the community and make a new friend? Do you know someone who might benefit from a friendly chat and a tasty meal from a neighbour? If so, get in touch with us today on 020 3475 3444 or visit www.casseroleclub.com.

Claire and Jess are Barnet residents who have become friends by sharing meals through Casserole Club. Claire lives on her own, so having Jess visit her on a weekly basis is something she really values. Claire says, “Jess is very sweet and generous. I really appreciate and enjoy her food…”

“Seeing Jess every week is so lovely and she’s now a friend to me.”

Jess has also loved getting involved with Casserole Club She says, “I look forward to Tuesday night, I really do. I look forward to going round and seeing Claire and it takes such a little part of my time – maybe half an hour – but that is half an hour she really, really enjoys and she gets to tell me about her life and how her week has been.”

Jess and Claire’s story was recently featured on ITV’s “Tonight” programme. We’ll be posting a clip from the episode shortly, so stay tuned.

Casserole Club has helped shared over 2,000 meals across the UK and this number is continuing to rise! To get involved by becoming a cook or by receiving a fresh home-cooked meal, give us a call on 020 3475 3444 or visit our website at www.casseroleclub.com.

And if you don’t think you’d be able to share a meal but still want to support the project, drop us an email at [email protected] as we’re always looking for a helping hand.
