Here’s a round-up of the latest news connected to the Coronavirus pandemic in West Leeds today.

Farnley Academy helps Wortley GPs

A wonderful gesture from both Farnley Academy and Bradford Grammar who made and donated face visors to Hawthorn Surgery in Wortley to keep staff safe!

The surgery also shared extra PPE with local care homes.

It’s lovely to see our community coming together at this difficult time!

Sunnybanks Mills work lockdown

Regeneration work at Sunnybank Mills in Farsley has stopped in the lockdown – but bosses are committed to finishing it …

Pudsey Community Project thanks

Some of the donations at Pudsey Community Project

Pudsey One Stop on Galloway Lane has generously donated food and essential items to the Pudsey Community Project, which is feeding hundreds of hungry and vulnerable households during this crisis.

The project said:

“We’re grateful for all the food donations we are receiving from individuals and groups (including the significant delivery we had from donors to our Farsley drop off last night!)”

Pudsey drop off is open Monday-Saturday 10am-12pm and Tuesday and Thursday 6-8pm, and also:

  • Calverley Parish Church: Tuesday and Friday 10am-12pm
  • Farsley St John’s Church Hall: Monday and Thursday 10am-12pm

Swinnow thanks

Volunteers at Swinnow Community Centre still continue to provide pack-up lunches to local children and food parcels and meals to older people, among other things. They’ve also received many donations:

“We would like to say a massive “Thank You” to the Pudsey Freemasons at the St Laurence Lodge who have given us a very generous donation from the Provincial Grand Master’s Fund.

“This will help massively with our work in the community during the current Coronavirus crisis, providing packed lunches to almost 300 children each week day.”

Do you fancy getting involved in a bit of Bramley ‘sunflowery-ness’?

The idea started at Bramley Community Centre and now Bramley Baths is backing the Solidarity Sunflower campaign to plant a few sunflower seeds in a pot on your windowsill, in the yard, garden, balcony – whatever’s available to you.

The Baths is offering a family swim for the under 16 who grows the largest sunflower, and a week’s Unlimited Membership pass for the adult.

You can either buy the seeds online if you don’t have any, or go to the Sunflower Solidarity Facebook group to find out how you can get hold of seeds.
