1000th food parcel delivered to those without support

In a previous post, I spoke about the work we were doing to get food parcels out to some of our most vulnerable residents who don’t have any kind of support network.

Well, I’m pleased to report that today we’ve delivered our 1,000th parcel. It’s been a pretty remarkable operation to get up and running so swiftly and I would like to thank the team, staff and all the volunteers involved.

You can watch a short video showing parcels being packed and delivered here.

It’s vital that vulnerable people stay indoors and in the first instance look for support from family and friends, neighbours, or from local community groups. But, if they have no one to turn to they should contact the county council on 0300 111 8050 or click here for advice.

Our work to tackle the pandemic continues, and as ever, I would encourage people to follow the official guidance on Coronavirus here.

Together we’ll beat it.
