Cummin Up for Christmas

Cummin Up is a local chain of Caribbean takeaways, with places in Catford, Forest Hill and New Cross. Owner Richard writes:

Once again  Cummin Up Caribbean Takeaway at 389 Lewisham High  Street (opposite Lewisham  Hospital) throws its doors open to all whom would like to share the Love of Jesus this Christmas Day. 

Please let those on the streets know,  those in centres and Hostels, those whom you think may otherwise be alone - in fact anyone lets spread the joy and the good news!

With thanks to Tabitha.

Christmas and charitable giving go together like bread and butter. Simple and tasty. Well done to Cummin Up.

Noticed the deletion Nick, obviously a touchy subject!

Cummin Up, Cummin Up, Cummin Up....it's DARE!

This is great news - and is it confirmed (Nick?) whether or not it is free?

Alas I have just sent out to groups working with the elderly details of other (more traditional) Christmas lunches available in St. Dunstan's Bellingham, and All Saints New Cross Road - but (when the pricing is confirmed) I will add this - between the three the whole Borough is covered North to South.

Brill. I'll spread the word.

And while on the subject. On Boxing Day the Hill Station is going to be opened up by the charity trustees (not the cafe manager and staff who are taking some well-earned rest) on a bring and share basis between 12 and 4pm. No fancy coffee machine and nothing from the cafe's freezer - but plenty of tea and instant and plenty to share as people bring in their over-catering from the day before.

Cupboard love is perfectly acceptable at times like this...

Kolp, if and ever you create something that provides a platform for others to promote their service let us know. Otherwise leave your cheap snipes to yourself. Ta.

Not sure why you deleted my comment about their environmental health score when it's publicly available on the Scores on Doors website. I didn't make it up, it's a fact, why shouldn't people know about it.

Brockley Nick said...

Because you did more than simply point out the rating (not going to repeat what you said)

And this is not why I deleted it, but those scores are to be taken with a pinch of salt anyway - many of our best loved places have 1 star and btw it was hardly in the spirit of the story! ;)

Excellent. We'll come up anything if it's free!

Thanks for letting me know about the Scores on Doors website, had never heard of it before.

This is about hygiene so in our restaurants, cafe's and bars is vital.

i think this scores on the door star rating system needs to be taken with a pinch of salt. Mcdonalds getting 5 stars ? I had the misfortune of working there when I was younger and in no area would I give it 5 stars.

well done Cummin Up- I've never tried your restaurant, but knowing what lovely people you are I shall certainly be in soon. Merry Christmas x

kolp said...

Thank you archive and search facility...

Anyone know if this is happening again at Cummin' Up?

FYI the Boxing Day drop in at the Hill Station is being done again - possibly with hot soup as Grow Wild are involved. No need to bring any over catering from the day before - anyone can just come along.

Scores On The Doors is an honest site - Top Chef gets 3 (Generally Satisfactory), Broca gets 0 (Urgent Improvement Necessary), Fishy Business gets a 3 (again Generally Satisfactory), Brockley Mess gets a 1 (Major Improvement Necessary).

It's like an honest guide to SE4!
