How we've supported our community through Covid-19
Posted on 7th April 2020 at 15:24
The Covid-19 pandemic has changed our 'normal' delivery completely but our fundamental values of caring & supporting our community haven't changed. It is important to remember behind each figure is a local person or family
Since the country went into lockdown, our dedicated team have been busy supporting a number of local organisations and the people of Hull and East Riding in the following ways:
• Partnering up with charity His Church to deliver six tonnes of fresh food and 2000 drinks to NHS workers at Hull Royal Infirmary and Castle Hill Hospital.
• Becoming an official partner in the ‘crisis response’ to Hull and East Yorkshire communities, working in partnership with the local authorities, CCG and other charities and organisations.
• Using our vans to help St.Michaels Youth Project deliver food to community organisations such as Hessle Road Network, Care Leaving Team and Hull Resettlement Project (an organisation that helps homeless single people).
• Working throughout Hull and East Yorkshire on a daily basis to support those in need in any way possible from food shopping, picking up medication and even dog walking!
• Delivering food parcels to participants on their programmes, along with keeping in regular contact with phone calls and emails.
• Running the Tigers Trust 30 Day challenge and virtual football centres through our social media platforms to keep participants active and engaged, alongside quizzes and gaming tournaments to keep our younger participants involved.
CEO Catherine Bishop said:
“We’re doing a lot of different things but the one common thing the team have is the passion and energy to support communities. That’s why we’re able to do it, because the team are committed to offering their support in a different way. We keep hearing some unbelievable stories and that’s what motivates the team. They can see the difference they’re making. That means a lot. We are proud to be the charity arm of Hull City, the badge is trusted and respected in the community and our team cares enormously about the people we engage with across Hull and East Yorkshire. It’s important in these unprecedented times we continue to support our communities helping people to lead healthy, happy and safe lives because we care and because we can.”
