Halal meat for Bristol charities this Christmas season

The users of the Methodist Centre in Midland Road, and The Wild Goose in Stapleton Road will all have the chance of having a meal with halal meat this Christmas. Pak Butchers, based in Easton, have arranged a donation of halal meat to homeless, old and vulnerable people.

Abdul Malik, the Managing director of Pak Butchers says “This is a great story for interfaith purposes over Christmas achieved also thanks to an established collaboration with the Old Market community who helped identifying organisations providing services to homeless people”.

Ian Webb, the manager of the Methodist Centre says “We do have a lot of Muslim men using our drop in Centre who will be very pleased to know we can offer them halal meat on a given day. We usually serve around 60 people and recently we had up to 108 guests. We are not open during Christmas itself because the charity Caring at Christmas is open throughout the period 24 Dec-1 Jan.”

The Methodist Centre normally buys food from Fareshare, a charity which organises depots and food supply for the vulnerable and needy, tackling food poverty and food waste.
