Homeless support charity fires up barbecue with a difference

Leamington Editorial 18th Nov, 2018   0

WINTER may be here but a homeless support charity has been firing up a barbecue with a difference.

Users of Leamington-based Helping Hands enjoyed more than 100 burgers in a grill created out of a six ton dumper truck.

Cubbington-based firm Thwaites made the barbecue for events but before putting it away for winter decided to stoke the coals one last time.

Helping Hands chief executive Lianne Kirkman said: “We are so grateful to the Thwaites team for turning our homeless soup kitchen into a winter barbecue.

“With lots of hungry mouths to feed, and heads to keep warm, the hot food and warm beanie hats provided, ensured the event was a real success. We at Helping Hands always appreciate it when local businesses help local people in need.”
