A positive impact for our local community

We’re proud of the positive impact that the Big Community Takeaway is having on people in our local community. It’s not just what the service means for our wonderful clients, but also for our volunteers and other community groups.

What people say about us

I was greeted by an elderly lady who remained behind her glass door, mouthing ‘thank you’, and sending a virtual hug. I  knew that this one hot meal had made a real difference to that lady.

Paula Soldini

I am in my 80s and was isolating and classed as vulnerable. It was indeed a lifeline at that time as it was impossible to get a delivery slot.

Pat Kent

A great project that works well because it’s based on good organisation principles and careful logistical planning, which is why it runs smoothly and provides assistance to so many residents.

Jane MacBean, BCC Councillor (Chesham)

Our partnership with the wonderfully servant-hearted Big Community Takeaway scheme has been a real joy. We’ve loved seeing our client friends surprised and blessed by the practical generosity of others.
