Do you recall a last month we told you about R2W (as part of Oaklea Group) being highlighted by the National Care Forum ‘Caring in Covid’ book?(background here http://Heart of the community – tis wot Oaklea/R2W does – and we can give you a special “window” on this world today.)
Well in addition to this, NCF have also created an online advent calendar featuring videos etc and we featured on 5 December! It featured a video of one of the lovely people shielding who we delivered to during #lockdown1 via the Appleby Hub.
So enter the grotto and click on this link and go to Saturday December 5th!
This was one of the stories featured….Hub goes mobile!
The calendar generated an awful lot of national activity on social media through th NCF Campaign team -example from Twitter below (Vic Rayner is Chief Exec of NCF) -and as you can see Charlotte from the Hub Cafe was one of the people who benefitted from the food drops!
Some background: NCF did this to develop a lasting legacy of the pandemic by documenting the experiences and contributions of the incredible response from NCF members during the COVID-19 pandemic (Oaklea are an NCF member).The book, ‘Caring in Covid’ is due to be launched just before Christmas -we will keep you posted!
