Food relief for rough sleepers needs help
YMCA Wimbledon in collaboration with Merton Council are making plans for a new project that that will offer food relief to local rough sleepers and those in need over the coming months.
The programme will run on a weekly basis on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11.00 to 14.00 from 13 July.
The idea is to create a team of staff/volunteers who will work from the YMCA in Wimbledon Broadway to provide food and other essentials to those local to Merton who are in need of support due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
All necessary risk assessments have been completed to guarantee that this project can run as safely as possible, and a team of cleaners will be onsite to ensure regular cleaning takes place. All involved will be provided with essential PPE.
We are still on the lookout for volunteers and donations. If you are interested drop an email to Alexio Oluwamuyiwa, Coordinator of the Merton Winter Night Shelter to register your interest and preferred day(s).
