A Thank You to Morrison's 

 

We would like to say a big thank you to Morrison's Supermarkets for their generosity in providing the special food parcels to vulnerable people on our Shopping Project yesterday. They were delighted. A big thank you to those on the phones taking orders, pickers, and delivers staff who go out of their way to make sure people have what they need to keep them in good spirits foodwise over the week. This is so important and it is greatly appreciated.

An update on what we are currently doing while we can’t be together.

 

Our new community Covid 19 response project working alongside Rotherham MBC, NHS Social Prescribing Service, schools and other local groups is up, running and going really well. Activities so far have included shopping, signposting, telephone support, information and advice, for people who are particularly vulnerable and isolated.

We have met with some lovely people so far and Its a real pleasure to be able to get food and support out to people who are keeping safe in isolation.

One of these people so far has been a lovely lady who’s having her 90th birthday this week. As she is unable to have the big family party that had previously been planned so on behalf of the local community we have dropped her off a card and little birthday cake with her shopping.

All of our workers and volunteers have been doing a fantastic job and all eager to continue.

An update on what we are currently doing while we can’t be together.

 

All of our many different projects and groups are being contacted regularly to check everyone is ok and find out what people are doing. We're using WhatsApp, Phone calls, Zoom, Facetime and Facebook.

 

There are also a number of Facebook groups that people have kindly set up and are hosting which are very active, helpful, useful and fun, so many thanks for the people who are doing this, supporting people and sharing ideas.

 

We are working on ways in which we can offer more help in the coming weeks for people who are particularly isolated or vulnerable so we will be asking you if you are able to identify anyone who fits this bill. We will let you know when we have more details of this.

 

Until things return to normal life please be assured that we are still here and continuing to help the people who already use our services.

 

Sending love and best wishes from all of us at Chislett and KPCP take care and stay safe.

Groups Suspended

In light of the current situation regarding the corona virus (covid 19) and the latest government guidlines it is with regret that we have to close all our groups until further notice.

We appreciate that this will be difficult for some but hope that people will look after yourselves, each other and our neighbours.

We are working on ways of continuing to support people where most needed. We will be in touch and update you as and when information becomes available.

Thank you for your understanding
Stay safe
