14 May 2020 - W&ER Club dashs to support local community Windsor Foodshare
It's at times like these that the Windsor & Eton Rotary Club members are at their best! The coronavirus has put extreme pressure on Charities - and one that the club is closely associated with was in serious need - the Windsor Foodshare.
The charity was desperate for both 'people' to help in collecting the weekly food, kindly donated by customers of Tesco, Dedworth Road, Windsor - but also money crucially needed to buy further quantities of the most basic of food items.
The 'hands' to collect was no problem as clubs members made themselves available to pick-up and deliver the foods each week. The need for the money was soon also tackled by the club with the members giving part of their (at this time unspent) meetings lunch money towards the needs of the charity. At today's date the club's total donations being an impressive £1,650!
Windor Foodshare works extremely ethically and carefully to ensure the food goes only to local people in genuine desperate need of it. All of them having been ratified as in such need by the Borough Council, Police, Social Services, Doctors and others. It is pleasing to report that the Windsor Foodshare are now working, assisted by lots of volunteers, at a fast pace. Importantly, they now have the food needs to help so many despairing people to not go hungry. Club President, Ralph Cooper commented "I'm so pleased our members have been able to speedily assist this important local community charity, of course we (the club) will ensure our continued support in the weeks and months ahead.
