EastEnders’ Tamzin Outhwaite to cook dinner for strangers in Christmas good deed
EastEnders star Tamzin Outhwaite warmed fans' hearts with a generous offer this week, promising to cook Christmas dinner for those in need this winter.
The 50-year-old soap star, who left Walford as Mel Owen back in November 2019, plans to prepare home-cooked meals in North London this December 25.
Sharing her plans with her Twitter followers, Tamzin made the offer to those in need, promising to deliver the dishes safely, adhering to Covid guidelines.
She said: "As a self-confessed feeder, I'm finding the lack of people to feed quite distressing.
"If there is anyone in need on Xmas day in the North London area I would be happy to drop off a Xmas dinner or 3. Outside of course."
The comment section below was filled with messages of admiration from her followers, who had been inspired by her spirit of generosity.
One said: "What a lovely gesture Tamzin, well done. So important that we who are able, all play our part to help others through these desperate times."
"Ah, this is such a lovely offer x," added a second, and a third chimed: "What a wonderful thing to do Tamzin!"
Meanwhile, another user recommended Tamzin get in touch with various charities in the London area, with Age UK getting a mention.
Another fan suggested: "Hi Tamzin. Please have a look [email protected] We are cooks on a national register happy to provide home-cooked meals for hungry people in our area."
Free My Meal is a non-profit charity that focuses on "connecting recipients with meals" in a bid to conquer hunger.
Tamzin, who had been doing her research, replied: "Yes I'm already registered with them."
The EastEnders star lives in London with her two daughters, born from her marriage to former husband Tom Ellis.
Tamzin's good deed is the most recent in a string of charitable endeavours throughout her career – just last month the mum-of-two donated a heap of electrical items to a homeless charity.
In 2013, during an interview with Charity Choice, Tamzin opened up about the various causes she loves to help, contributing to a wide range of non-profits.
She said: "I've been involved with so many charities. I don't know where to start. My family runs the James Baldwin Trust in memory of my cousin who died from Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma when he was 26.
"We can't cure cancer but we can help. My brother chairs the charity and I'm a patron. My husband and I also support Great Ormond Street and I've always supported Barnardos."
She finished: "Amongst others I support Marie Curie Cancer Care because they looked after my Nan when she was dying."
