Everyone's welcome: Volunteers at Merimbula Salvos treated the community to a delicious morning tea in the lead up to the launch of the Red Shield Appeal.

Merimbula Salvos volunteers baked up a storm and rearranged furniture to create a welcoming atmosphere at their free high tea last week.

The Salvation Army family store hosted the free morning teas as a way to help residents battling with loneliness. Merimbula Salvos managers Sue Davidson and Carole Davis said they try to hold these morning teas twice a year. 

“There are a lot of people who live in isolation and can feel very lonely,” Ms Davidson said. “This was a way for people in our community, especially those who are struggling to make ends meet, to feel special, have a morning out, meet people and enjoy some food, a cuppa and a chat.”  

There was an impressive amount of food on offer including, slices, sausage rolls, sandwiches, cakes and much more.
