The volunteers involved in Ballymoney Hockey Clubs ‘Helping the Community Appeal’ in response to COVID-19, have delivered close to 100 food parcels in just one week, a mixture of council food boxed and their own.
The process hasn’t been an easy one given the demand for emergency food requests and the large area that has been covered during their ‘Helping the Community Appeal’.
A spokesperson for the club took to social media on Saturday evening to thank all those involved, posting:
“Since Monday of this week, Ballymoney Hockey Club have delivered 78 Parcels from the council and had requests for a further 13 of our own. We are also doing daily paper deliveries to elderly people and collecting prescriptions when needed. This is set to increase in the coming weeks.
“As a club, we are relying on volunteers to deliver these parcels around our large electoral area. Thank you to our players, our parents, rugby club members and friends who have been driving to deliver these this week. If you think you could get involved by doing a few deliveries please message Maria via the social media challenges or text message for more information.
“To all those who have donated supplies for our own emergency food hub, we are most grateful. When we get a request we ensure that we include fresh produce daily, such as bread, milk, butter, eggs etc. If you would like to donate to our appeal, to help make this happen, you can transfer into the account and reference it “covid” and we will know what it is for.
“Once again, thank YOU to every single person who has helped during this appeal, we look forward to brighter days ahead with our Toon family.
