Jacksons Lane - Feeling Good & Christmas Day Volunteers

Jacksons Lane works with vulnerable groups in the community, using communication and creativity to provide companionship, increase confidence and improve overall wellbeing.

Their Feeling Good project provides companionship to those that need it the most by pairing volunteers with isolated individuals, who then provide a minimum of 30 minutes social contact a week, helping combat loneliness and social exclusion in the older community.

They also usually host a Christmas Day meal for over 100 elderly or disabled members of the community, who otherwise would be on their own. This year, due to Covid-19, they will not be able to run Christmas Day in their building as normal but are looking at a Christmas Day operation of feeding over 200 isolated and vulnerable members of the older community.

FareShare - Local Collection Point Driver's Assistant

FareShare are a charity working to combat food waste and food poverty by redistributing surplus food to over 150 charities and community groups around London. These are Community Food Members, who turn the surplus food into meals for vulnerable people.

The majority of their charities receive their food in deliveries, sent out on FareShare vans with a mixture of both volunteer and staff drivers. So that they can reach more charities and reduce their carbon footprint, they are increasingly setting up Local Collection Points (LCPs). At LCPs, Community Food Members from a particular area are able to come and collect their deliveries from a single location.

In order to help ensure things are as effective as possible as the number of charities collecting increases, they are looking for volunteers to support the FareShare drivers going to LCPs. They supply numerous charities in North London, and have an LCP in Haringey. They need volunteers from the area to assist with the LCP drop, especially as they are looking to increase their work with community groups in the area.
