New venues for winter warmers

HOT meals are once again on offer to people in need but the location of this winter outreach has changed. Co-ordinated by the Derwent Valley Salvation Army Corps for the last few years, the offering started out as a breakfast but then moved to the early evening and has now become a lunch.

The original location on the New Norfolk Esplanade last year moved to Kensington St and Circle St, and there are two new locations this year. Instead of the previous outdoor locations, a warm welcome now awaits inside the Salvation Army headquarters at 79 Hamilton Rd from noon on Mondays, and at the Derwent Valley Community House on the corner of Blair and Charlotte Sts, from noon on Wednesdays.

Captain Tim Size of the Salvation Army said it was great to have the Community House on board and the meals could be extended to other days of the weeks if other service providers were able to help out. The free lunches provide consist of burgers at the Salvos and a sausage sizzle at the Community House and they are open to anyone in need – no questions asked. Fellow Captain Di Size said a warm welcome awaited, indoors, at both of the new venues.
