Supporting the Vulnerable

As many of you might have seen through our social media pages, we teamed up with Open Kitchens during 2020 to provide free meals for those in need within our community

Open Kitchens worked with restaurants across the UK during the Covid-19 pandemic to help combat the national food shortage. Helping to reopen restaurants, which had to close their doors in March 2020, to utilise their empty kitchens and produce free meals for those in need

we raised over

7,000 meals 

to support #ThoseInNeed

in our community

However

We had pledged to raise

We were beginning to struggle

Our weekly production in the kitchen creating the meals was going to have to be put on hold until we could secure more donations

I heard about the great work that the staff at Bar Iberico were doing and also that they were at risk of running out of money. It was such a fabulous initiative that I was eager to help if we could.

 

The people Dan and his team are supporting are those who very often come into contact with our services, so it made perfect sense to work in partnership.

I’m delighted that we have been able to help, not only with the sponsorship, but also signposting vulnerable people in our community to services that might be able to help them.

This is the type of project that helps us all to get through what have been very difficult times and I am glad we have been able to help.

With the incredible support from our followers of Bar Iberico & Iberico World Tapas and the sponsorship from Nottinghamshire Healthcare, we were able to continue to help our community combat food scarcity

THANK YOU!

 

 It is still a very scary, uncertain and trying time for all of us

With the path back to "normal" becoming a little clearer, it can still bring fear and anxiety into our lives though  

They offer a crisis line to anyone seeking assistance

Call day or night and someone will be there to listen and advise you on services available to you, so you can access the right support

You are not alone
