In light of the current situation it is ESSENTIAL WE all stick together to come out on top. OUR ELDERLY NEED THE MOST HELP RIGHT NOW..!! They are the ones not panic buying, but they are scared also. Home made is best is what all elderly people will tell you so we will be working together with our neighbours Ribble Homecare to ensure those self isolating don't go without home made food and essentials . Ribble Homecare and Calypso Restaurant will be cooking and delivering meals for their freezers.

We are looking for donations to help buy the ingredients for a daily delivery of fresh Homemade meals.

We are also looking for donations of PACKET FOODS, BISCUITS, WIPES,  SOAP,  TOILETRIES,  TINS OF SOUP etc. The drop off point is Calypso Caribbean Restaurant Eanam Wharf, Blackburn, BB1 5BY

Ribble Homecare are a well-established local care agency that covers Blackburn with Darwen, South Ribble, Hyndburn and surrounding areas. Ribble Homecare is registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC), and have fully trained friendly dedicated carers who go the extra mile to help individual service users. We take pride in our work and have been highly recommended by hospitals, doctors and district nurses.

Together both our businesses are coming together to help the most vulnerable in our local community to stay safe in their own homes while on their 12 week isolation, and not worrying about where their next meal is coming from.
