    Story

    No family should go without food during the coronavirus pandemic, but sadly, job losses have made families more vulnerable during this unprecedented time. Park Street Residents Association aims to lessen the burden by distributing food parcels to families most in need.

    Originally we started our Food Drive in March 2020 when we realised the extent of the need of more fundraising, and subsequently we raised £830 on our JustGiving page, and hundreds more from bake sales, stands and individual donations! (See highlights from our original campaign here .)

    We're working with the local schools How Wood Primary School and Nursery and Park Street Primary Schools to identify those families feeling the pinch, and ensuring those who need it most get help. The schools' heads know the community well, and are the most informed as to who's suffering. We respect their expertise.

    We are extremely grateful to local people who regularly donate goods and money to support our 18 families. Wenzel's have also been extremely generous with their donations each week, but money's still needed to fill the bags with nutritious food and necessities. Please donate what money you can, to help your neighbours through this difficult time. Your generosity will help families get through this.

      To all our supporters, we'd like to thank you for all your help during this unique year we've experienced. Now that there's a light at the end of the proverbial tunnel, we're going to be winding down the project. We've enough funds left from your generous donations to see us through for some time now, but we aren't going to continue adding to the effort at this point. Thank you for everything you've allowed us to accomplish, and most of all, for your community spirit and generosity to your neighbours. From all of us at PSRA, Thank you.
