When the Stable Café, in Wadham Street, W-S-M shut down due to the Lockdown, proprietor Prayag Rajpura looked to see what he could do to help local people. He found that there are a lot of vulnerable children who do not get meal vouchers for school meals, so he set about supplying packed lunches for as many as he could and, in the first seven weeks, he had managed to supply over 3,200 meals!
The local YMCA stepped in to help with deliveries and the local Masonic Lodge, King Alfred, made a donation of £500 which included £200 funded by the MCF. Prayag told Compass “For a micro charity like ours this is a lot of money and will have a big impact on what we can achieve.”
