Seerah Today
A new charity that has been set up in High Wycombe to help distribute emergency food parcels to those in need. Volunteers have set up an initiative to provide emergency same-day food parcels to those in need, especially at this difficult time.

This is for elderly and vulnerable and also those who may have lost work or have not received benefits.

If you would like to donate, you can go to their JustGiving page www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/junaid-khan-5?utm_term=vQ4bEpB86&fbclid=IwAR2LK9_3bMQUXtC2IGQylKWxxoRgB4UvRTfyBJiQQc-auEt6j19YWP5hymc or drop food supplies to Thara Stores in Castlefield or Mak Foods in Totteridge.

Ros, from the charity, said: “We have been working the last week and have witnessed a lot of fear and a lot of need; but honestly; I've seen more hope and love in the community than anything else and it's been wonderful to see how many people want to help. 

“We have a group of delivery drivers on standby to drop as well.”

They are planning on selling fruit and vegetable packs with wholesome meals, cooked at their kitchens at The Chiltern and Amersham Rugby Club, for all the family. Orders need to be made by 8pm for next day delivery.
