Probus hands £50 to Wimborne food support group

THE Probus Club of Wimborne handed over a £50 donation to a food group in the town.

The cash was handed over the Wimborne Community Food Supply at a recent meeting.

Geoff Jones, president, presented the cheque to Liz Barge, one of the Food Supply organisers.

Liz explained the operation of the Food Supply, based at the Allendale Centre, to the meeting.

She explained how it keeps a running stock of food available to anyone who is in need.

However, she said their help to families in a difficult situation extends further than just supplying food.

“We often cook meals for some families, and in some cases, teach them how to prepare food when the cook in the family is no longer able to cope due to illness, and a partner, without a culinary background, has to take over,” she said.

Probus is a club for retired men and meets monthly at the Broadstone Golf Club for a lunch and a talk by a range of speakers, with other social events and visits during the year.
