Second Helpings wants to bring some festive cheer to our community this Christmas Day. This year, although we won't be able to host our usual sit-down meal for everyone to enjoy together at the Cafe, we won't let Covid-19 stop us from bringing Christmas Day to you in your home. If you or any of your friends, family or neighbours would like to have their Christmas Day meal prepared by Second Helpings and be part of our festive celebrations on the 25th December please complete this application form and email it to team@secondhelpings.org.uk or ask to get your name added to the list on the form in the bunker next time you visit. If you would like to volunteer to help distribute the Christmas Day meals and you are not already a volunteer please complete a volunteers form. Volunteer Registration Form

The Community Fridge and Second Helpings café on Saturdays will be closed for the foreseeable future, as indeed will the Well. To avoid hardship for families in food poverty Second Helpings can help immediately with free access to food from our Bunker. This is situated in the tunnel under the Methodist Church in Barn Hill, Stamford or off North Street.

The Bunker is open:

  • Sunday: Closed
  • Monday: Closed
  • Tuesday: 10.30am – 12.30pm
  • Wednesday:  1pm – 4pm (New time)
  • Thursday: 1pm – 3pm
  • Friday: 1pm – 3pm and 5pm – 6pm
  • Saturday: 12.30pm – 2pm
We would like to make you aware of a few changes. We currently remain open but as you will agree, we MUST follow Government guidelines.
  • We have temporarily moved the (Bunker) shop to the church hall to provide more space. (Signage is provided to guide you)
  • Please queue on the markings, 2 metres apart.
  • Please wear a face-covering
  • Only 2 customers may enter the building at a time, so please be patient. Our volunteers will inform you when it is your turn.
For the protection of all – Please do not touch anything.

The whole idea of Pay-As-You-Feel is dear to our heart. We are now pleased to accept your contributions as we can now  handle cash more safelyThank you in advance for your understanding during this time.

We look forward to seeing you!

Please share this update with any families you know who will benefit from this help.
