Every Thursday at 8pm, millions of people up and down the region are coming together to clap for the NHS and other key workers continuing the fight against Coronavirus (Covid-19), demonstrating that supporting each other can continue in these unprecedented times.
All of our lives are being impacted by the ongoing Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, but its impact is sadly being felt harder by the most vulnerable people within our communities, and the third sector organisations that work tirelessly to provide support.
We know that you are passionate about supporting others in your local area, so Sodexo has issued guidance to support you to start or continue volunteering at this time, helping to provide relief to both Stop Hunger’s charity partners Trussell Trust and FareShare, and the NHS.
Remember that our top priority is the health and safety of you, our clients, suppliers and communities, so it is imperative that your safety comes first when helping those in need.
Volunteering in-person or remotely can continue under the current UK Government instructions, as you will be leaving your home to ‘provide care or to help a vulnerable person’. Volunteering with the organisations listed above would meet this definition.
Please follow the guidance, available to download from the Your_Sodexo Stop Hunger page, so you can safely start or continue the good work that is helping those who need it most.
If you are unable to volunteer, you can show your support in other ways, including making a donation to the Stop Hunger emergency relief fund – click here to make a donation. All the funds raised via this link will go directly to the Trussell Trust and FareShare.
