Help QPG Assist Shielded And Vulnerable During Covid19 Crisis
Weʼre raising £4,000 to support QPG Community & Sports Hub in assisting the most vulnerable and shielded residents in our community of Queen's Park during Covid-19. QPG Community & Sports Hub has launched its emergency appeal to raise funds to support the most vulnerable residents, including the disabled, the homeless, refugees, asylum seekers and the individuals & families financially struggling, who are self isolating. We are continuing to support people within Queen's Park, Westminster, Brent and across Kensington and Chelsea. The Corona virus pandemic has caused an unprecedented level of chaos across the globe. Its impact will be felt by many but the weak and vulnerable in our community will be hit the hardest. Many of these families have already been relying on support services which are now being forced to close. Donate to provide a family food pack to be delivered by QPG volunteers safely to their homes. This pack will contain all the essential food & toiletries, and resident referrals will come via the local mutual aid groups. Please donate generously and help us support those in need! Since the beginning of lockdown QPG volunteers have volunteered an average of 11 and half hours a day, supporting the most vulnerable and shielded residents in our community of Queen's Park. Working with limited funding, and relying on food donations from The Felix Project and IDA restaurant we have been able to provide food and care packages to over 200 residents over the past three weeks, however, the demand continues to grow daily and as the lockdown is now extended, we need to ensure that as a community group we can support all those who ask for help, this includes the elderly, local children and their families. We provide everything from breakfast clubs, to lunch and dinners 7 days a week, as well as regular shopping. We are also providing education online via our YouTube and social media platforms. Thank you in advance for your support.
Your donation will go towards: - Providing purchased food items and toiletries to the most vulnerable residents. - Cover the cost of fuel for volunteers, who have several packages to deliver locally. - Provide home exercise equipment including skipping ropes for all primary children. - Keep up with the growing demand of emergency items, including some medicines. - Expand our services to cover the delivery of more breakfast items for families. - Provide baby and toddler items to those who have registered for this support.
