Volunteer service gets some help

WORK has begun on the new extensions to the Coffs Harbour Meals on Wheels office.

Manager Bronwyn Webber said the extensions could not have been possible without the support of key individuals.

“This could not go ahead without the help of Brett Tolhurst, who drew the engineering plans, and Ross Bryant building certifier, who will oversee the whole project, neither of whom charged any fees for their services,” Ms Webber said.

“We are most grateful to these people for their support, and as we are a community service, they were only too happy to help out for the benefit of our clients.”

From February, the service's Chill Out Cafe will be opening four days a week, serving fresh food cooked to order by chefs and served by clients who are training to become part of the workforce.

Coffs Harbour Meals on Wheels delivers to 100 clients daily and 1200 HACC clients who are registered users of the Chill Out Cafe.

If you have any questions about Meals on Wheels, call Bronwyn Webber on 6648 3600.
