SSL provides 1,000 meals to vulnerable people during pandemic

Sanders Senior Living’s chefs produce an extra 200 hot meals every week in an effort to help the vulnerable during the coronavirus crisis.

Claridge Place in Solihull and Graysford Hall in Leicester both successfully upheld their commitment to provide food for vulnerable people during the pandemic. In receipt of the groups 1000th meal was a senior gentleman living in the Solihull community, pictured, who was safest from contracting coronavirus by staying at home, in line with the advice and guidance published by England’s government.

A daughter of a lady living in Olton also in receipt of the delicious and hearty meals, said to the Claridge Place,

“Mom has recently been fortunate to receive the delicious lunches so generously delivered into the local community. Mom lives independently with family support, but is now in self-isolation due to her age and underlying health conditions. To know that she is receiving a welcome hot meal is one thing, but I believe you are delivering far more than that. Mom couldn't get over your kindness. It has given her a real boost and something to look forward to when days are long and it is easy to become down-hearted.  You are proving that we are all in this together and together we will look forward to brighter days ahead. We are so lucky to have you in our community and wish you well.”

Claridge Place facilitated their meal donation service through local organisations including Seeds of Hope and Solihull Community and Voluntary Action (CAVA). A member of the CAVA team commented, “You have been a fantastic support to the local community over the past several weeks and that won't ever be forgotten.”

Graysford Hall also worked with their local councillors and community groups to identify and deliver meals, recognised by a letter received from the Lord Mayor’s of Leicester’s Office.
