How You Can Help

Everyone coming together in the Waveney district to help the vulnerable and high risk in our community during the Coronavirus Covid-19 crisis. Covering Lowestoft, Oulton Broad, Pakefield, Kessingland, Beccles, and other surrounding areas.

Food and Essentials

With so many in our local community having to self-isolate or struggling to get essential supplies, all donations are welcome. We can collect donations but The Flying Dutchman in Lowestoft is acting as a key drop-off point for us.

Please take donations to The Flying Dutchman between 4-7pm or at other times by prior arrangement.

Tel: 01502 561391

Location: Beccles Road,
Lowestoft, NR33 8QS

Volunteer

We are always in need of more volunteers to help us collect and distribute the essential supplies we are gathering for those most in need.

We also need other kinds of help such as social media admin assistance and so on. Thanks in advance.

Please register to volunteer by clicking here and then fill in your details. In this way, we can more easily match you up with those in need in your area. Be assured that your data will not be used for any purposes other than helping the Covid-19 outbreak amd will be kep secure at all times.

Donate

It’s at times like this that the power of the community is vital. We are collecting essentials and delivering to the people who need it most at this worrying & difficult time: the Vulnerable, Elderly, High Risk.

Every penny counts!

We are 100% non-profit. This is us all just doing what we can to help. Please help us to help others by donating via our Go Fund Me page, set up by  one of this group’s founders, Kelly Brooks, to enable us to purchase the essential items needed for our community.

Thank you in advance.

Spread the Care - not the Virus

Please follow all official Government and NHS guidance on self isolation, social distancing, and how to cope during this time of crisis and avoid any unnecessary risk. But please also continue to care for those who are most vulnerable in our community and also our key workers who are placing themselves at risk to help all of us survive this COVID-19 Coronavirus crisis.

Join our Facebook Group and share with your friends and family to let them know we are here for them and we can help. 

 

Our Mission

The Coming Together Waveney Group was formed by Stacey Drennan on 15th March 2020 in response to the shocking impact the Coronavirus COVID-19 has had on our local community. The impact on those classed as most vulnerable and at high risk from the virus is particularly hard.

With the need for self-isolation and social distancing required to keep us all safe, combined with the shocking stock-piling of food and essential supplies we have seen across the country, the most vulnerable in our community simply need support to ensure they keep safe and well throughout this traumatic period.

Our Mission is to see that this happens. With our growing number of members, an incredible band of volunteers, and the kindness of strangers donating food, supplies, their time, and their hearts to this cause, we know we can do it.

By Coming Together to help, we will succeed for those who need it most.

Thanks everyone. You’re all amazing!

From The Heart

Today I spent a few minutes helping the group. Collected some veg and delivered to a lady and a young girl who was obviously in need. I was looking for no reward but the young lady gave me a stone she had made. My heart feels huge and I feel like I’ve won the lottery, but bigger. This group is doing amazing things …….. let’s all do our best x
