Helen Roth has come up with a novel way of raising money for charity with private COVID Culinary Connect meals in her own home for six guests.

The Castle Hill resident says that the meals, on an international theme, are aimed at enabling people to get out and meet new people in a safe environment with strict social distancing measures in force. “I wanted to connect people who live by themselves and don’t go anywhere in this COVID climate. It is a chance for them to get out.” So far meals have raised over $1000 which she is donating to Castle Lions Club projects.

“I am a member of the Lions but this is not a Lions’ event,” she said.

She said the events have also upskilled her culinary prowess as she has tackled, Indian, Spanish, Italian and Greek menus plus two Christmas in July feasts.
