Since March 2020, the charity has co-ordinated a COVID-19 Resilience Group and Recovery Project.   During this time they launched a food recycling unit to reduce food waste and tackle food poverty.  This identified the need to provide further support to vulnerable residents who had become isolated with no options to socialise with anyone due to the closure of all local facilities.

The Weir Charitable Trust was delighted to support the resilience and recovery project through financial support for their Burns Supper themed food hamper project.   As a result of receiving the award the charity has provided hampers to 75 vulnerable and isolated households (approximately 100 individuals).

Lucy Cooke, Development Officer at the trust, said

We are so thankful to The Weir Charitable Trust for supporting this initiative and our wonderful staff and volunteers for making this happen.   January is not a favourite month for many people and the pandemic is certainly having an impact.   We hope these Burns hampers will provide a little joy, inspiration and sustenance in the village at a time of uncertainty and difficulty."
