The group launched their fundraising appeal and already plenty have helped

  • The initial target is to raise £1,500
  • 80 deliveries of essential items were made in their first week
  • They are continuing to help those who need it most

Harrogate RoundTable who organise the Harrogate Charity Beer Festival and the Stray Charity Bonfire and Fireworks Display, have teamed up with Supporting Older People and Waitrose to deliver essential food parcels to elderly and vulnerable in the Harrogate area in response to the coronavirus situation.

In total they have already made over 100 deliveries, helping vulnerable people get essential items.

Commenting on Facebook, the group said

The team have been out in force every Friday for the past few weeks delivering essential food parcels to vulnerable people in our community. So we can continue with our work, we’re reaching out and have set up a GoFundMe campaign.

The funds generated will go directly into purchasing food for local elderly people.
