Last Saturday marked the one year anniversary in which our Veterans of The Foundation Volunteers have been delivering food to local veterans and their families!
The Veterans of The Foundation Volunteers Arthur Berks and Joanne Swift have had many laughs throughout the year with a variety of questionable fancy dress outfits to cheer up local veterans throughout the pandemic alongside delivering food and essentials!
The fantastic work they have done throughout the year ensured that local veterans and their families were able to get their shopping and essentials safely, without the risk of COVID-19.
Steve Leonard, Saints Community Development Foundations Director said: “We would like to thank our partners HMS for their continued support, providing us with essential transport to deliver food and essentials to local veterans via our community van. We would also like to thank Company Shop Group and The Colefields Regeneration Trust for their assistance in donating food and essentials to local veterans in need.”
“Throughout the pandemic we have really seen our community pull together, even during difficult times. We have still seen donations go to our many projects that are currently on hold due to COVID-19 such as the Reminisce Cafe and our cheer dance groups alongside other projects, we would like to thank all of those that have kindly donated.”
“It makes an incredible sight seeing our veterans camaraderie shine through as it has done on numerous occasions. we would also like to thank our volunteers from the Veterans of The Foundation for delivering the parcels and more importantly checking on the well being of their friends and comrades when they need it most over the past year.”
