Eastfield food drop-off and collections

Community Support Update

Coronavirus (Covid-19) has had and will continue to have a huge impact in so many ways. The Hub set-up the ‘Fauldhouse & Breich Valley Coronavirus Help’ Facebook group as a quick response to ensure the community had a way to allow people to offer and receive help and share relevant information. Everyone has been amazing using this group, sharing, supporting and helping each other in these very difficult times. Please continue to use this group.

Going forward we want to ensure we can help and support our volunteers and the community with the impact of Covid-19. For many the impact is life-changing and sadly for some absolutely devastating.

F&BV CDT is supporting the community through difficult times.

In the coming months, people will need support and help in so many different ways. We have opened Eastfield Development Centre, slowly to start and will open more as government guidance changes. We have opened Eastfield doors initially to ask for any food donations to be dropped off. These donations, along with other supplies will be used to help everyone in need including, but not limited to, families and individuals struggling financially, elderly isolated individuals, people in isolation due to bad health, illness and disabilities and people with Covid-19 symptoms.

As we move on, we will use Eastfield Development Centre as a ‘central hub’ for help and support, not just food. We will update here and on our Facebook page @fcdt and group as we go! We want to ensure Fauldhouse & the Breich Valley have the support it needs and deserves.

So for now, we ask, please if you can help all of us work together and please donate what food you can. Eastfield is open Mondays to Fridays from 11am-1pm to accept donations of food. We have social distancing procedures in place. Do not enter the building but leave your donation at the fire door. These procedures will change as we move forward, however for now this is the safest way for everyone involved including those donating, volunteers and staff.

F&BV CDT would like to say a huge big thank-you to everyone who has responded to this crisis, to the volunteers and to the local people, local groups who have all rallied round to support their communities. It’s been fantastic! We know there is still much to do as the full impact of the current Covid-19 crisis hits our communities. Together we will work to do all we can to make sure we can meet the challenges to come.
