Thank you to Local Stores

Thank you to Local Stores

May 01 2020

We would like to say a huge thank you to the continuing support PEP is receiving from local businesses and food outlets.

Today we would like to thank M&S; who are continuing to arrange food donations for PEP. Driver Darin heads to the store three days a week to collect the contributions. PEP staff then sorts the food and delivers the parcels to a pre-arranged list of local people.

This provision was organised through Neighbourly, a fantastic resource connecting businesses to the local community and it’s great to see them coming together so well in this time of need.

Another ‘thank you’ for today must go out to local store Waitrose. They got in touch with an offer of some bags for the food deliveries. It was driver Rays turn to collect the donations. These bags will be ideal for carrying the food to people’s doors, particularly when there are a number of individuals receiving food in a household. This will make life for the food deliverers much easier, safer and the delivery runs more effective!

We are always looking for donations of bags to be used for deliveries and are grateful to everyone who has donated so far.

The food is all prepared in industry standard kitchens and distributed in line with Covid-19 safety guidelines.

Remember: stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives.
