5 requests for assistance came in today, 2 x Food boxes were delivered, 2 x Welfare calls – including a visit and 1 x Miscellaneous.
Over the past 8 months, we’ve been very fortunate to have established some great partnerships not only with our neighbouring communities but also with a huge number of influential organisations that have each in their own way been influential in the success of the Group. In no particular order they are:
Branston & Mere Parish Council
Branston All Saints Group
Branston Co-op Foodstore
Branston Co-op Pharmacy
Co-op Head Office (Community Development Team)
Lincolnshire Resilience Forum
Lincolnshire County Emergency Centre
NKDC – Well-being
FareShare (Hull & Humber)
Lincoln Community Larder
Lincoln Food Bank (Part of the Trussell Trust)
To add to this list, today I was called by a representative of the Lincolnshire Food Partnership. Interestingly, we discussed what capabilities existed across the village for residents to ‘Grow for the Community’. It was mentioned that some communities had set up Growing Groups specifically for providing vegetables etc to support residents, not only during difficult times but also as an on-going effort. If you have any questions, would like further details or feel if this is something that you may be interested in, obviously for next year, please give me a call on 07546 241940.
Take care and Stay Safe.
Thank you for your continuing support – Andy
