SPOTLIGHT ON CATCHGATE AND ANNFIELD PLAIN ISOLATION SUPPORT (CAPIS)

14th Dec 2020

This group was set up from Annfield Plain Community Centre in March 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Through our Response Volunteering Micro--Grant Programme with County Durham Community Foundation, the group received £450 to collect food for the Fareshare warehouse in Westerhope and to pack and deliver it to the six villages they cover. To date they have completed and distributed over 2700 bags of much needed food throughout their community.

The funding has also paid the fuel expenses for their personal shoppers and prescription deliveries to the very vulnerable people they continue to serve during this pandemic. They will also be distributing Christmas Food Hampers to 42 families within their local villages via the local schools.
