Something Amazing at The Point
I'm really pleased that CCC has been able to be part of a local initiative coordinated by Julie and a few others by making The Point available for use. This started by collecting the food that was left in the local cafes which were having to close, and giving it out to NHS staff from Lewisham hospital. They needed a space to operate from and The Point is in an ideal location!
As you can see from the picture, a wide range of food has now been donated, as is being gratefully received by NHS workers as they start and finish their shifts. Thanks so much to Julie and David and others who are making this happen! And it's great that The Point is being used so well, even though we can't run our usual activities there at the moment.
If you're able to help out by being at The Point for an hour or so at any time, that would be hugely appreciated - there's always something to do, with food donations to keep track of and store safely, and people to give it out to. Contact Julie direct, if you have her details, or let me know and I'll put you in touch.
There's also a crowd funding page that has been created to support the project, if you're able to support in this way.
Or have a look at Lewisham Local to sign up to volunteer in the community as Maureen mentioned last Sunday morning - there are opportunities for befriending, deliveries and general support.
