We’re writing to let you know about a couple of things: face masks and a local community veg scheme.
David found he had a pack of unopened face masks (which he uses in his work) and wondered if they could be of more use elsewhere in the community at this time. He contacted Pulham Market surgery who didn’t need them BUT they suggested he try care homes. He took the pack round to Culrose House and they were very grateful for them. So if, for work or DIY reasons, you’ve got a spare stash of sealed face masks (not easy to say!) please consider donating them to your local care home – they really need them.
COMMUNITY VEG SCHEME:
Matthew, of the Happy Food Coop in Bury, has come up with a great plan to try to get locally grown organic veggies to folk who are in need during this incredibly difficult time.
Part A of the plan: if you’re struggling to make ends meet and you’d welcome some veggies, a bundle can be (safely) delivered to your doorstep FREE of charge, on a weekly basis if that’s useful for you.
Part B of the plan: The hope is that those of you out there who haven’t been financially stricken by the lockdown and think this is an idea worth supporting, will consider donating money to the scheme to help it continue to deliver free organic veg to those in need.
If you would like a FREE organic veg delivery: please reply to this email and we can take your details, check what delivery arrangements suit you and find out how many are in your household. If you don’t need one but you know someone who does, please let us know.
If you would like to support this scheme by making a donation: please visit Food Bundles, Emergency Relief where you can read all about the scheme and scroll down to the Donations bit on the page. Donations will be easiest to make either through the Fundrazr link or, by bank transfer direct into the Happy Food Coop’s bank account.
If you might be able to help in the future: if this project succeeds and we need more volunteer delivery drivers or a place in which to receive a big delivery from Bury (which then gets distributed out to individual households), again please let us know.
With big thanks to all – whether it be for donating spare face masks, donating some £ to help make the community veg scheme a success, or volunteering some space/delivering … and PLEASE get in touch ASAP if you’re someone in need of some fresh organic veg but haven’t got the means to get hold of them, we need to know who you are!
Jane and David
