Monday meal


In the autumn of 2012 we started the Monday meal. We meet fortnightly in a home. The event is targeted at destitute asylum seekers. We meet the guys in the city centre and then transport them to the home. We eat together. After the meal people will just  chat,relax, or – a great favourite-watch football on TV .Games such as “Uno” have also become popular with some demonstrating a very competitive spirit! At the end of the evening we transport the people back into town. Many of the “guests” from Open Hands houses attend. Some who have previously been housed by us still come including one of our “guests” from 2007 when we started. We have a team of people to invite, transport and, most importantly, cook! We have had some amazing meals! We never quite know how many people are going to come, which adds to the interest!
