Hunger lunches well supported

Lent - the 40 days of preparation leading up to Easter in the Christian calender - began last Wednesday and so it seemed an apt time to reproduce this picture from the Rasen Mail of 1992.

The Market Rasen Christian Aid Committee were busy serving up soup and a roll to visitors at the first of their five-week series of hunger lunches.

Pictured are Mary Etchell, Kath Farrow, Dorothy Maycock and committee chairman Cecily Maycock, who told the Mail the response to the hunger lunches had been good and attendances were expected to build up as the weeks progressed.
