Vineyard Sunday lunches
In 1981 Penny Wade, founder of the Vineyard Project, set up this scheme to provide a solid meal for the homeless and those in need. The scheme involves all the churches throughout the borough of Richmond-upon-Thames. There are 22 churches providing lunch every Sunday and when it is a particular church’s turn they provide a two-course lunch, plus tea or coffee, two or three times a year.
The scheme co-ordinator is Adam Brand, 020 8892 6831.
