The Peepul Centre has been awarded a grant as part of the Government’s £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund to help face the struggles of the Coronavirus pandemic and to ensure they have a sustainable future, as the Culture Secretary has announced.
Peepul Centre Free Meals Service for the Covid-Vulnerable People is supported by the Government’s DEFRA – Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs – grant to purchase foods to deliver nutrients meals to the vulnerable people in the Leicester Belgrave area for 8 weeks from 16 June 2020.
Our aim is to provide free meals to the local elderly, vulnerable, isolated, NHS staff & Key workers. Currently we are supplying up to 1000 meals per week.
We are a charitable organisation that has been involved with the local community since we were first established in the year 2000. Most of our work is with and for those that live in the areas surrounding our Centre. As a result, we have established a deep connection with people and value all those who use our Centre. Our organisation is completely self-funded as is this project, which is why we are asking for your help.
