Volunteer Cook Required For Phoenix Stroke Club

A volunteer cook is required for the Phoenix Stroke Club on Wednesday lunchtimes. The role involves choosing a menu, ordering the food, preparing and cooking the meals and then tidying up.

Pauline Roadley has been a volunteer cook on Tuesday club days since 2015. She enjoys providing a freshly cooked meal for stroke members as well as being part of the volunteer team.

Pauline said: ‘Our stroke members are always grateful, and I receive thanks every week for the food I prepare. I love being part of the club and there is plenty of support from other volunteers when I need it.  You do not have to be a cordon bleu chef. This role is fantastic for someone who enjoys cooking and wants to give something back.’

Stroke member Paul said: ‘The freshly prepared lunches are a real highlight of the day for me. I enjoy the variety and the wholesome food, as well as sharing a mealtime with other stroke survivors.’

Renata Bielinska, Club Supervisor added: ‘We pride ourselves on being a friendly, fun and supportive club. We are a unique charity with only one member of paid staff. It’s our valued volunteers who provide the day-to-day service to the stroke members.’
