Delivering Meals To The Vulnerable In Our Community
Added: 18 January 2021
During the Covid-19 pandemic there have been many struggles, and the power of community spirit has really shone through, and we are proud to have partnered with The Lady Hamilton pub in Portsmouth to help support the vulnerable by delivering meals prepared by the Head Chef, Jeanette Warren and a team of local volunteers.
The initiative was set up during the first lockdown and has developed throughout the pandemic. Working with Pompey in the Community who are providing ingredients for the meals, Jeanette has been on hand to prepare up to 100 meals a day that are then delivered to local people who are shielding or may not be able to enjoy a daily hot meal.
By providing cars and drivers to help support the project, we have been able to give Jeanette and the team more time to spend preparing the meals, meaning more people can benefit from the scheme. We have ensured we have used electric vehicles to help keep the campaign as green as possible, helping the environment as well as the community.
Project leader Jeanette commented: “We are really grateful for the support that Richmond Motor Group have provided. Not only have they provided cars, but several of their team have volunteered to help with delivering the meals, which is just fantastic, and so much more than we could have hoped for – I can’t thank them enough! This added support means we will be able to help more people throughout the community as we deal with the difficulties Covid-19 presents.”
Michael Nobes, Managing Director of Richmond Motor Group, also added “This is a great local project, that really demonstrates how the people of Portsmouth can pull together to support their local community. As a local business we are delighted to be able to help this initiative and deliver support to those who need it most and be involved in giving back to our community.”
