We were lucky enough to be highlighted as one of the projects in the Technology Strategy Board’s Tomorrow Together programme – which is working to start conversations and support innovative ideas to help people stay independent for longer. The article follows one of our star Pair Ups – Natasha and Beryl – as Natasha cooks up a beautiful looking chicken and tarragon casserole (check out that top picture – it looks like it should be in a cookbook!), and delivers it round to Beryl, both talk about their reasons for joining Casserole and the friendship that’s sparked from their meals.
We’ve been working hard in the Reigate and Banstead area with the help of both Reigate and Banstead Council and Surrey County Council, and will soon be expanding to get more communities involved in Casserole – the responses from people who want to share a meal have come from every corner of the UK today, which is beyond what we’d expected and hoped for. It means so much to hear people’s support and passion for the project, and to encounter people who believe as strongly as we do that Casserole can make a difference.
So please! Grab your copy of The Times today and check us out in Times2 – or if you have a subscription, check it out online. Don’t forget to try out our very own Casseroler, Natasha’s tasty Chicken and Tarragon Casserole recipe as well!
