Community Kindness Kits … Wave 3

Dear Residents,

Its hard to believe we are now in the third week of delivering Community Kindness Kits to our vulnerable, elderly and isolated friends and neighbours across The Ivers. Last Friday a total of 39 bags of kindness left the Hub here on the High street once again delivered by our dedicated volunteers, all of which has only been possible by the enormous community commitment to care shown by all of you and the donations that keep flowing through the doors.

We are quite simply awed by you all 👏 👏 👏 👏

Words will never be enough to express our gratitude and the gratitude of those who are so very vulnerable in our community and who received these acts of community kindness donated by you their friends and neighbours over the past seven days.

They keep calling to say thank you to you all for caring … we keep sharing tears .. you are simply amazing in your continued support and compassion … here’s a few words from them to you:

‘Thank you to you and all the volunteers. My parents were delighted to receive their kindness bags today. Both said it was good to feel cared about and I could hear more happiness in their voices.'

‘I hope you are all keeping yourselves safe too.’

‘my mother in law is happy. So thank you for putting a smile 😊 on her face.’

We would also like to give special thanks to the following residents for levels of donations which went a long way to making this weeks Kindness Kits possible:

Caroline and Cally Mae Ward, Mena Deehan, Olivia Mahon, Mannu Singh Chawla from Mace, The Co-op, Richard from Heathrow for the 200 Duck Eggs🦆🥚🥚❤️, the staff of Royal Mail whose enormous contribution of long life goods not only benefited The Ivers community but was able to benefit our neighbouring friends at Slough Outreach who work so tirelessly to care (without borders) for the homeless and the vulnerable. Last but not least our angel on wheels Valerie Tuckwell and her daughter Emma who endlessly contribute and care across the community, we could not do this without you all.

We are so proud to have worked with you all this week. ❤️👏👏❤️
