Honest and Trustworthy
The friendly faces of our volunteers and the few moments we spend with our clients are the true gift of Bedale Community Meals on Wheels.
BCMoW, which was established by Diane, began cooking and delivering 2 course meals three days a week in September 2015. Starting with 20 meals a day, we currently serve up to 32 meals a day. We currently serve over 4300 meals a year in Bedale and the surrounding area, including Aiskew, Leeming Bar, Leeming, Exelby, Burneston, Kirklington, Snape, Well, Newton-Le-Willows, Hackforth and Crakehall.
BCMoW exists to help those in Bedale and the surrounding area who are unable to cook, to maintain their independence and dignity by delivering cost effective and nutritional meals through caring volunteers. One of the ways we maintain our non-profit status is by periodically offering a month of free meals to clients.
BCMoW works because of its dedicated volunteers. As well as being a non-profit organisation, we are also proud to be a 100% volunteer operation. Our 60 volunteers have provided an uninterrupted meal service in the area for over 2 years, and we aim to continue the service for as long as there are those in the community that need it.
BCMoW registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales on 6 October 2017.
At the March 2018 Hambleton Community Awards BCMoW won the award for “Service to Older People”.
