Connexions receive much needed funding from HBL’s Community Chest

Things are hotting up for a community group in Uttoxeter following a £2,000 grant to buy a new oven.

Connexions is a group for over 60s that meets at Uttoxeter Pentecostal Church every Friday. Sessions include a free lunch, games, talks and the chance to build friendships.

The new oven purchase – provided with Community Chest funding from Heath Big Local – will mean Connexions can serve regular hot meals to keep its regulars happy.

Co-ordinator Sue Fletcher said: “We’ve struggled along with an old oven for years now and it’s sometimes not very reliable and we’ve had to cook food off site and bring it in. This new oven will mean we can constantly provide hot, reliable and regular meals for our regulars. We’re grateful to Heath Big Local for the generous grant.”
