What is the Winter Food Campaign?
The winter of 2020/21 is a hard one for everyone due to the Covid19 pandemic, but it hits the disadvantaged and elderly particularly hard. HNCC remained open over the Christmas holidays to provide a meal on Christmas day to people who are vulnerable or alone, and offered daily activities from the 26th to 31st December. Our volunteers were at hand to deliver a smile and Christmas treats to the many people in our neighbourhood who are affected by food poverty, loneliness and isolation. We are confident that by April with your continuing generosity we will raise £35,000 to extend our services and build on the learning we have done throughout the pandemic. It is our aim to ensure that our community is supported and resilient and with your donation and working together with our neighbours, we can create a resilient, happy and food secure community in the Highgate area.
Your donations will be used to support our food programme through our food bank and meals on wheels service. It will also allow us to provide much-needed company and support over this miserable winter.
Please, if you can, consider helping those in the local community most at need.
