Volunteers week: Robins Foundation food delivery team

Since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, City’s official charity have worked with a number of volunteers who have supported the Foundation in delivering food to those most in need.

As part of the Robins Foundation's response to the coronavirus pandemic, the organisation has worked alongside Ashton Gate Stadium and the other sporting charities across the Bristol Sport group to significantly increase their food delivery to vulnerable young people in Bristol. Using their in-depth knowledge of the community and their pre-existing relationships with vulnerable youngsters, the Foundation deliver in excess of 700 food parcels and meals every week to those who need it most.

The food delivery efforts of the Foundation have been bolstered by a number of individuals and businesses offering to volunteer.

Whether it be packaging the meals within Ashton Gate Stadium, or helping the Foundation’s staff go door-to-door to deliver the food parcels, each volunteer has played a pivotal role in enabling the Foundation to support the community during these difficult times.

Bristol City Robins Foundation, Projects and Partnerships Manager, James Edwards, commented: “Our team of staff and volunteers have worked tirelessly since the start of the coronavirus pandemic to support vulnerable young people in our community.

“We are so incredibly grateful to everyone who has offered to support us, these volunteers have been invaluable to our operation.

"From everyone at the Robins Foundation we would like to say a massive thank you to all of our incredible volunteers: Ben Roberts, Joe Sims, Kelly Derrick, Laura Ames, Maggie Blagrove, Maisey-Lee Gillett, Oliva Tovey, Paul Collings, Pete Hinton, Pete Simpson, Rhiannon Redmond and local businesses Aaron Glass and DH Frames.

"We would also like to say a huge thank you to Waterfront Rooms and First Quality Foods for donating supplies for our food deliveries."
