Please see the update from Bowness & Windermere Community Care Trust:
Thanks to the continuing generosity of all of the organisations and companies who are now helping fund this project recipient numbers have been growing every week. Since the project started on the 17th April we have now distributed over 813 Windermeals on the seven delivery days involved.
On Tuesday this week 165 portion of soup and fresh bread rolls were distributed and yesterday 220 Afternoon Teas were provided to add a special something to help those shielded in their homes during VE Day celebrations. This one off special was kindly additionally funded by the Roselands Trust but would not have been possible without all of the support that your organisations are providing in making this project deliverable in our community. Every Afternoon Tea was accompanied by a Union Flag, a little addition to help the celebrations along.
We expect to reach our initial target of 400 soup deliveries per week by next week. Additionally we are now intending to add a hot meal offer to the soup deliveries following support from Windermere Town Council. We are hoping to commence this extension of provision on May 15th.

I would also wish to recognise the growing group of socially distancing volunteers who help ensure the efficient distribution (and always with a smile) and last, but not least, to the team at Lamplighter Dining Rooms for their tremendous work in producing Windermeals.
