15 May: Raj has kindly donated 12 packs of toilet rolls and 12 packs of kitchen roll. Also a gentleman from Penn road brought in a box full of items and a person spent £20 on items.
Chair Joy is working with Park Street and How Wood schools, and is in contact with the Baptist Church as well, to make sure the food goes to those who need it most.
Secretary Chris has been staying quite busy delivering the boxes to Joy’s, but of course, there’s always room for more!
Please donate what you can. We’re not through this yet.
Update: As you can see from the photos our secretary Chris took, the donations are piling in at Twinsco, but there’s always need for more. Please visit Raj and do what you can.
Raj at Twinsco has generously allocated space in his shop for donations of food for families in need due to Covid-19 lockdown and implication of it.
All donations of food and toiletries will be distributed to local Park Street families, via the relevant organisations.
Please give generously, and what you can afford if you’re in a position to do so. The food is going to neighbours and members of our local community, whose needs have been recognised by our local primary schools.
In addition, PSRA will be launching a fundraiser page for vulnerable families, where you can see what your donations buy. To date, we’ve allocated £250 for food purchases, some of which has already been used to purchase food for How Wood residents. Our chair Joy was busy today buying the goods, and How Wood Primary School delivered parcels to 12 local families this time. We’ll continue to work with them until our funds run out.
Twinsco has been a valuable member of our community for many years, and especially now during this pandemic. Please support our local shops now and after the pandemic ends.
