As I predicted yesterday, Week 36 certainly started off a bang 💥

16 requests for assistance were received and successfully responded to.

They came in the shape of:

5 x Prescription collections and deliveries

5 x Food Box delivered

5 x Welfare inc 2 x home visits and

1 x Miscellaneous

Volunteer Safety

I would like to take this opportunity to remind volunteers to adhere to the guidelines in respect of protecting themselves whilst conducting jobs. It is not a secret that a number of residents have either had or currently have Covid-19 and are undergoing treatment. With this in mind the appropriate measures must be taken and PPE worn, as well as respecting confidentiality.

Branston All Saints Food Bank (“No one needs to go without”)

Once again the Food Bank proved its worth today in providing 5 food boxes. This is a great capability that is superbly supported. I can honestly say from experience that it is making a real difference to people’s lives. If you would like to donate or are considering donating items, we would currently appreciate:

Orange juice

Apple juice

Long life milk

Packets of microwaveable rice and of course, anything festive.

Take care and Stay Safe

Thank you for your continuing support – Andy
