Helping children get enough to eat in Clevedon

Making sure a child has enough to eat during the day is the focus of a special project which could be introduced in Clevedon next year.
Helping children get enough to eat

Christchurch is hosting an evening for people to find out about the TLG Make Lunch project and how it could work in the Clevedon community.

Christchurch joined forces with the charity TLG in 2017 to run early intervention programmes, providing trained coaches for struggling children who need a bit of extra help.

TLG is a Christian charity that helps churches to bring hope and a future for youngsters across the UK who are facing some of the toughest starts in life.

Christchurch’s Children and Families co-ordinator Kate Dommett said: “The scale of holiday hunger is huge. It poses an urgent question. What happens to the children in our community during the thirteen weeks of the school holidays? For too many, the food runs out and families struggle. But what if our churches could bring the answer?”

Christchurch has 22 trained coaches and three more training in September who are coaching in four local primary schools and a team of four starting in Clevedon School this Autumn.

A presentation on the Make Lunch project will take place at Christchurch on Thursday 5th September at 7.30pm. There will be refreshments and then a short presentation followed by Q&A sessions.
