Here at the Turbary Resource Centre on the Heatherlands Estate we have been supporting local people in and around Ferndown and the surrounding area delivering freshly cooked lunch time meals and groceries during these weeks.
We thank all those who have supported this initiative, particularly the monetary donations received from local businesses, which provided the cash to start this project. The donations of food came from local food stores – Sainsburys through our collection box and some direct from the store, regular fare share donations from Tesco at West Parley, and weekly donations from Lidl through the neighbourly scheme. In addition there were store cupboard food and cash donations from the local church congregations.
Last but certainly not least, we thank our volunteers who delivered the meals with cheer, which really helped make people’s day during a long lockdown.
