Rob, Liza and Dan at La Tabella have set up a JustGiving page to help feed children in Southport over Half Term, which has now attracted more than £2,000 in donations.

They have already been busy cooking and delivering meals in the Southport area.  

They said: “We decided to offer the free meals for children as we are obviously aware of all the work Marcus Rashford and many others are doing and we wanted to do something to help our local community.

“We are offering free pasta dishes which are freshly cooked and full of healthy ingredients which can be warmed up at home to any children who need them during the October half term holiday.

“We would like anyone to either message or call us so we can sort their meals for them.

“Also we are encouraging people to nominate anyone they feel would appreciate the meals but may be too shy to come forward themselves.

“Although things are really hard for the hospitality industry at the moment and we are struggling like never before we felt we still needed to put it into perspective and we couldn’t sit back and let children in our local area go hungry.

“The whole team at Tabella are behind this 100% and we all hope we can make a little difference to the lives of our neighbours.”
