Community Kindness Kits - Important News
Community Kindness Kits
This week marks the eighteenth week of the Community Kindness kits and a lot has changed over those weeks.
With the announcement of the changes to restrictions from 1st August for all those shielding it seemed appropriate to review what we were doing..
All the recipients of our kits will now be able to go out and are free to do their own shopping, get exercise and begin to return to a more normal routine – ensuring that social distancing remains in place of course.
Following discussions this week it has been agreed that it would be reasonable to follow this timeline for scaling back the CKK deliveries.
This means we will deliver our last packages on31st July 2020 to our current list of recipients - at which point we will have been delivering for 21 weeks.
We will stop accepting donations from the general community from Wednesday 29th July 2020.
We will continue to support those families with children who are on the programme until September when schools re-open. Funding is in place to cover this commitment.
Recipients have received letters to-day in their packs to inform them of this timeline.
Those with specific on-going needs that mean they require further support have been given contact details to speak with us direct about their situation. We will be able pass their details to other agencies who are equipped to meet their needs on an on-going basis.
We can be contacted on 01753 655331 during office hours Monday to Friday or via email on email@example.com.
Everyone will continue to receive the parcels until 31st July and we will write to our recipients again with a reminder of the last date for deliveries.
Once again we want to acknowledge the generosity of the community and the commitment of our volunteers in allowing us to continue this programme for as long as we have. Your involvement has made such a difference to so many in our community.
At this stage we are exploring what might be appropriate for The Ivers Parish Council to facilitate longer term to support the community and build on the successes of the CKK programme – details to follow later in the summer.
