A Middlesbrough lunch club is to have a guest visitor tomorrow (Wed) – the town’s UKIP Euro-MP Jonathan Arnott.
Mr Arnott will be attending a barbecue organised by Tickle The Taste Buds Lunch Club at The Christian Center Building, Loxley Road, Thorntree.
The club, which relies on donations of food and money, provides a free two course meal every fortnight and Mr Arnott said he was delighted to accept the invitation to experience the work of the organisation at first hand.
The group started 17 years ago to feed the homeless and get people housed but now helps people with a wide range of problems and issues.
“I cannot praise the work of this organisation highly enough,” said Mr Arnott.
“They are doing a fantastic job helping people in society who need it the most and I am looking forward to meeting the organisers and seeing if I can help in anyway in my role as local MEP,” he added.
About 40 people are expected to attend tomorrow’s lunch which starts at noon.
