Dishing out essentials thanks to local donations

April 3rd 2020

Thanks to a donation of food and supplies from Holy Rosary Church in Billingham and also Morrison’s in Teesside Park, Five Lamps have today delivered 26 food parcels to their customers who live in Thornaby and surrounding areas.

During these difficult and unprecedented times, Five Lamps have received a number of requests from customers who are in need of food or essential items.

Many of the requests are from individuals and families who have had a significant drop in their income, due to losing work or who are self-employed and unable to trade at the moment.

Five Lamps Home Care, Care Assistants have also reported that a number of Service Users who are being shielded due to their age or underlying health conditions are also unable to access essential food supplies.

Thanks to the donation of food and also thanks to Five Lamps staff who have volunteered their time to collect the donations and prepare the parcels, Five Lamps were able to provide a parcel of fresh and tinned foods as well as sanitary products to 26 households, in Thornaby and Stockton on Tees.

Amy Richardson, Five Lamps Marketing and Campaigns Manager said,

“Thank you so much to Holy Rosary Church and Morrison’s who have donated food and supplies. Our frontline workers have been able to see first-hand the rising need for food parcels during this time. We have been able to reach 26 households today; however, we are aware of many others who would also benefit from a food parcel. We hope that we can continue to provide food parcels on a weekly basis and donations are key to enable us to do this.”
