Our Food Provision has seen another busy week with around 80 packages going out to a mix of families and single people. We work with a great team of volunteers who collect the packages on a Wednesday and Saturday morning and deliver them up and down the dale.
Some of our volunteers have been with us since the beginning on the Covid pandemic, supporting the project every week since, whilst others have come along more recently after seeing the positive effect the deliveries have on local residents
Our package recipients tell us how they love to chat to our volunteers and sometimes they might be the only other people they see or talk to all week. We have been receiving letters from students at QE Sixth Form in Darlington every week since March 2020 and one of these goes out with every care package too. They are a small way to keep our recipients feeling part of the world and their local community
We aim to continue to deliver our care packages for as long as they are needed and if you know anyone who might be in need of either a one off or regular delivery, please pass on our referral number 07415167940. We just ask that the recipient has had to make lifestyle changes due to the Covid 19 pandemic
