Meals on wheels are still available to those in need despite the lifting of some lockdown restrictions.

The Mirehouse Community Centre Association and the Mirehouse Residents Group have reminded the public that support is still available during the pandemic.

A group of volunteers have been delivering meals around Mirehouse throughout the Covid-19 outbreak to people who are shielding and struggling families.

Work began on the project in April with an initial trial run providing 160 meals to those unable to leave the safety of their homes.

The meals on wheels provision for Mirehouse residents can continue thanks to support from the Mirehouse community as well as Cumbrian businesses like Sellafield Limited, Tesco, United Utilities and Dobies.

The Morgan Sindall construction company provided a van to deliver meals around the estate. Meals have been cooked for residents of Mirehouse throughout the coronavirus pandemic by Claire Mattinson and Linda Sim from Top of the Shops cafe.

Karen McGrady, Charlie McGregor and Julieanne Kelly have also worked tirelessly to support those in need. It is estimated that volunteers have each spent over 300 hours in the kitchen since the outbreak began to prepare meals for those in isolation.

Julieanne also helped to obtain the funding from organisations which is enough to keep the project going post coronavirus.

Three meals are delivered on a weekly basis to those who seek the team's support.
