"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. 

​Thanks to all Big Batch Cook partners: Cedarwood Trust, Evan's Bistro, Second Bite Academy & Whitley Bay Round Table.

" This is unbelievable- people are cynical but I see the spirit coming up, good community spirit is appearing"
