Bramley folk have risen to the challenge during the Covid-19 outbreak with a food bank collection.
Local residents were asked to donate whatever they could to the Bramley and Stanningley community food bank collection to help the Bramley Care Bears volunteers continue to deliver food parcels to everyone who needs them.
Philip McConnell, from The Bramley Care Bears, said:
“The Bramley Care Bears have been providing food since before the Coronavirus lock down and, thanks to our community partners, we were able to maintain our food distributions while maintaining the social distancing needed.”
Donations were collected at a number of addresses in Bramley, including Bramley Community Centre.
The food collection was the idea of the Bramley & Stanningley councillors. Cllr Jools Heselwood said:
“Councilllors Caroline Gruen, Kevin Ritchie and myself just want to say a huge, huge thank you to everybody who donated to the Bramley and Stanningley community food bank collection.
“We are absolutely overwhelmed by people’s generosity. It means the work of Bramley Care Bears food distribution can continue and help people in the difficult times we find ourselves living in. Thank you so much to everyone who donated and everyone who helped by being a collection point.”
