COVID-19 Update – 30 March

Over the next few weeks, it's important we all play our part in tackling COVID-19. 

I've listed below some things you can get involved in to keep our community safe.

Supporting Veterans

Royal Star & Garter is seeking donations of toiletries for the vulnerable veterans it cares for following a shortage caused by the coronavirus outbreak.

The charity’s 63-room care home in Surbiton, on the corner of Upper Brighton Road and Langley Avenue, is in desperate need of items including deodorant, soap and toothpaste for its residents.

It is asking for individuals in the local community to volunteer their help by providing toiletries for the residents. It is also appealing to central London and local hotels which may be closed to guests to drop off surplus stock at the Home.

It comes after the charity, which provides loving, compassionate care to veterans and their partners living with disability or dementia, temporarily stopped all visits as part of its infection management protocol.

Donate to Our Local Foodbank

Voices of Hope are acting as the central distribution centre for all foodbanks in Kingston. They are in need of financial help so that they can continue to make the thousands of hot meals and deliveries that they are providing for residents across Kingston.
