Windrush Community Response - COVID 19

48217802_1590079121925710_r.jpegThe Preston Windrush Generation and Descendants (PWGD) UK is a community led group supporting the Black Community in Preston by giving advice and guidance to the victims of the Windrush scandal.

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, PWGD UK group has launched an outreach food project aimed to the vulnerable elderly population by cooking and delivering free Afro-Caribbean food to 65+ years old members of the community. This outreach project will fulfill the cultural gastronomic need of the black community who are isolated and unable to access shopping for the ingredients on their normal nutritional routine which can further impact on their mental health.

All proceedings will be used to buy, prepare and deliver food to the 65+ elderly isolated in Preston due to Covid-19.

Currently the group and its volunteers are delivering food every Friday to the vulnerable and elderly in Preston and adjacent areas.

We are relying now on donations to continue this project and increase this provision. Anyone can help with the Windrush food project.

Your support is key to allow us to continue alleviating the challenges faced by our local elderly community in this difficult times by bringing food to their front doors. It is undeniable that food brings people together and promote a real sense of belonging and identity.

Would you consider donating any amount to help us achieve our mission?

We thank you in advance for your support! Your donation is greatly appreciated and will be used to continue this initiative.

Yours sincerely,

Glenda Andrew and Sekeena Muncey
PWGD UK Co-founders
Anthony Brown - Chair of PWGD UK
