With your help, last month we reached a huge milestone having successfully saved over 100 tonnes of surplus food from the landfill and offset 350 tonnes of greenhouse gasses in the process.  In just 32 weeks since we began our emergency food operation in response to the crisis we have provided 93,000 free meals and 18,000 bags of groceries to residents in need. We have also saved a whopping 102.3 tonnes of food waste by turning surplus food donated via our charity partners and local businesses into delicious and nutritious free meals for local residents.

Walking Buddies

We’re looking for ‘walking buddies’ – to offer care and support to persons who are vulnerable as the lockdown eases and they are able to go back outside again.

Our walking buddies will support them to regain their confidence in getting out and about again.

Volunteers will support individuals who are socially isolated with very limited social contact with others due to the crisis.

If you are interested in becoming a walking buddy then please reply with your availability along with which locations you are happy to travel to throughout the borough. A car is not required for this role.
