The Mayor announces charity

Marlow’s Mayor, Cllr David Brown has announced that Meals From Marlow will be the chosen charity during his mayoral term.

In the course of lockdown in 2020, it became clear that both exhausted frontline keyworkers and vulnerable families needed the support of the community — and Meals From Marlow was born. The charity was the brainchild of chef Tom Kerridge, Andy Agar and Chris Hughes, supported by a GoFundMe page and a team of volunteers. Although the founders continue to be involved, a team from All Saints’ Church, Marlow now manages the day-to-day operations.

Mayor Brown said: “Since its inception, Meals From Marlow has delivered over 150,000 meals, a truly amazing achievement! I’m delighted to be able to help raise funds for this very worthwhile charity.”

Chris Hughes, of Meals From Marlow said: “Meals From Marlow is a wonderful local charity which has brought together many elements of the local community to help people who live nearby. The Mayor’s support is great news. This builds on the consistent support from the Town Council over the last four years and is another example of what makes Marlow special. Thank you to all.”

Today, Meals From Marlow delivers over 500 meals per week to vulnerable individuals who have been referred to the service by social services or other bodies. Meals are prepared, cooked, frozen and then delivered to recipients on a twice-weekly basis.

Meals From Marlow is a community-based provision created by the community for the community and is run purely on the donations and fundraising received. If you would like to support the Mayor’s charity.
