BIG BATCH COOK
"I cant believe that this is happening- that someone would be showing an interest in me!"
Whitley Bay Big Local have partnered with another local charity, Whitley Bay Round Table, to offer support to some of the most vulnerable members of our community during the COVID-19 lockdown.
By using our connections in the town, we have identified people who may not meet the criteria for support from other agencies.
Every day a local chef prepares high quality meals and a team of volunteers deliver these around the town to very grateful recipients. This is a message we received from a local establishment:
"On behalf of absolutely everyone here, a very BIG thank you to the Big Local for all of your very big hearted efforts in ensuring that everyone here has the opportunity of a hot meal everyday. It's gone down very well indeed and the people living here are more than a little touched at your kindness."
The Round Table's website has a page dedicated to 'isolation support': "During these extraordinary times we’re doing everything we can to help support our local community whilst we go through the coronavirus pandemic. Please click here to visit our support page."
" This is unbelievable- people are cynical but I see the spirit coming up, good community spirit is appearing"
