STAFF and volunteers from the Coventry Boys and Girls Club helped make sure some young people in the city did not go hungry during half-term by delivering free meals to them.
The group, based at Whitefriars Street in the city centre, sprung into action and took the meals to Spon End.
Coffee hub manager Julie Freeman and her daughter Lacie prepared the food which was packaged up by CBGC youth leader Leah Loughlin, Lacie and Hannah Williams. Around 20 to 30-a-day were handed out – 150 in total throughout the week.
CGGC spokesperson Scott Felstead said: “I think it’s great we have got a team which was able to take such positive action to help the community.
“It meant some young people who would have otherwise gone hungry didn’t.”
Prior to the lockdown the club held boxing classes, dance sessions in its studio, youth lessons, arts and crafts and games, such as pool.
Now, as it did in the previous lockdown, it will be running online sessions.
