Supporting Downham Market & Villages

A fast-growing, community-spirited volunteer group has been set up to help residents of Downham Market and surrounding villages who are being affected by the Coronavirus/Covid-19.


Volunteers are coordinated via the Eternity Church to help those in need with groceries, post, prescriptions, errands and more.


This page has been created to help with 3 critical aspects of this service. 


1. Many people in self-isolation do not have access to cash. So far all transactions are paid for in cash, but this is tricky, and as time goes on, access to cash will become harder.

Anyone needing to use the service can now pay for their transaction here.


2. Well-meaning residents of Downham Market wish to make donations to the food bank, while these are still needed we must be discouraged from purchasing extra supplies, to avoid putting pressure on supermarket stock levels.

Via this page we can support anyone wishing to donate from the safety of their own homes, to their families, neighbours, or just anyone who needs it. This allows us to put the funds into the most needed items.


3. Volunteers are incurring costs while helping, and we wish to reimburse them. 

All donations received here will be paid directly into the bank account of the Eternity Church, for the purchase of supplies through a reputable supply chain, and reimbursing volunteers the costs of providing support to vulnerable and self isolating people. 


Thank you!
