Our wonderful Croydon COVID-19 Mutual Aid Group supplying food, groceries, medicines etc to those self isolating or unable to leave their homes.
SHOUT OUT TO ALL THE SOUTH NORWOOD VOLUNTEERS AND HELPERS!
It is an understatement to say that it has been a tough and disruptive few months for the world because of #COVID-19. However, what we see is our community and people rallying around to help one another in adjusting to this new way of living.
We want to celebrate and shout about these efforts without which there would be hundreds of people in distress, without food and medical care.
FOOD and PROVISIONS
There are food banks serving hundreds of people weekly, through local organisations such as South Norwood Community Kitchen, St Lukes Church, The Baptist Church and many more kind providers, some of who have been supported on a weekly basis by our local Councillors.
MEDICINES, GROCERIES, TRANSPORT
The wonderful people of Croydon and South Norwood set up the #CroydonCovid 19 Mutual Aid and the #SouthNorwoodCovid-19 Mutual Aid as a direct response to the physical distancing and lockdown measures implemented in March 2020. There are hundreds of volunteers who come together through these sites to run errands, provide transport to those residents who are vulnerable and isolating. The love, humanity and the genuine care for one another we have seen in the community has filled us with pride and joy.
Let’s take a moment to recognise the kindness of people in our community and celebrate at the warmth and love that we have seen displayed during the crisis.
SHOUT OUT TO ALL THE SOUTH NORWOOD VOLUNTEERS!
YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!
