We would like to take this opportunity to share some postive stories relating to Covid-19 highlighting community spirit, volunteering and people just getting stuff done!
COVID-19 Response Efforts
The Burton-in-Kendal Community Meals service has been running for a number of years. A dedicated group of volunteers deliver hot food 3 times a week to elderly & vulnerable villagers. The food is kindly prepared by Pam at the Smithy Inn at Holme. In early March 2020 the service was under threat due to the Covid-19 crisis. All but one of the regular volunteers is aged over 70. Some also have underlying health conditions. The need for them to self-isolate for their own health meant the delivery of meals was under real threat. A number of other Community Meals services across Cumbria had the same urgent need for extra volunteers.
