As we are busy planning and shopping for food and drink to make our Christmas special, one local food producer is teaming up with a charity to offer some festive cheer to homeless people in Warwickshire.
For every Christmas Box that Thyme sells, they will give a turkey and Christmas pudding to Helping Hands. The charity operates in Leamington, Kenilworth and Warwick, working with the homeless, victims of domestic abuse and those with drug and alcohol addictions and the donations from Thyme will help provide Christmas meals for those in need.
Thyme is a new freshly frozen meals delivery service based in Wellsbourne. They prepare meals, freeze them then deliver to your home. Owner Craig Tomkinson told the Warwick Courier : “We thought it was important to do something for others and that is why we are making the donations to Helping Hands. I am thankful that we are in a position where we can offer a bit of help to a charity during this time of year.”
Thyme’s Christmas Box for six people contains a free-range turkey, a dozen pigs in blankets, pork and chestnut stuffing, duck fat roast potatoes, honey roast parsnips, kale and beetroot baubles, Thyme’s secret recipe turkey gravy and a Christmas dinner cooking guide.
