A New Kitchen for St Mark's Reigate

Please help us raise funds to extend and upgrade our kitchen.
Our hall facilities enable volunteers of all ages to offer food and companionship to many and also a place of safety to vulnerable people. By upgrading our kitchen, we can carry on providing those services. Critically, we can also increase the number of people we reach in our local community.

Our hall is used for many social events that see over 350 people each month enjoying the facilities our kitchen has to offer. We hold a monthly community lunch for 56 elderly people who have little social contact, providing them with a Sunday roast and companionship. Also a monthly Messy Church providing a meal for on average 80 people, weekly coffee after services, a daily breakfast club for school children and a weekly toddler group. On Christmas Day last year, Voluntary Action Reigate and Banstead held a Christmas dinner for over 100 people who would otherwise have spent the day on their own. We also host a weekly winter night shelter for vulnerable adults during its operating period.
Without this project we may not be able to continue these activities.

The current kitchen was initially installed almost 30 years ago; the facilities are now at the end of their useful life and need to be upgraded to meet current regulations. The total project cost of up to £120,000 includes building works, upgrading utilities and the purchase and installation of equipment.  We are also applying for grants locally and holding monthly fundraising events, encouraging all current users of the hall and members of the local community to join us.
