Leighton Linslade Helpers Fundraiser

Leighton Linslade Helpers is a collective of community volunteers who came together to support their community through the Covid 19 lockdown in their town and surrounding areas.  It very quickly grew into an organisation that is continuing to support its community by forming a charity.

What started off as an emergency food bank to those in hardship or those shielding, without access to food, has grown into a range of services, from food parcels, prescription deliveries, counselling and listening, free-cycling, to many other ways of supporting families, the elderly and the isolated.

This fundraiser will help us get established in our new warehouse, with all the associated overhead costs and if we exceed our target, possibly a vehicle to assist us with deliveries to our community and wider Bedfordshire, in support of other agencies and Charities.

Our group has been overwhelmed by the generosity of people and business, during this very difficult time for everyone, and we just know that this community spirit will continue.  There is still much work to be done to help our community get through this pandemic and to rebuild their lives and lift their spirits, for which so many will be grateful.

We are also very grateful to the Advance Theatre group, who  have busily been preparing a concert entirely from lockdown, to enjoy from the comfort of your own home!

The concert will be broadcast on a live YouTube premiere on
Wednesday 1st July at 7pm! And they have chosen to support our fundraiser.
