When we last had the snow, i went down the street to an elderly sister couple & asked them if they needed anything. One shopping list later & a trip to Waitrose and back, left them very happy. Going to do the same tomorrow.
Disabled/Pensioners are so grateful for that little help in these conditions
Would be great if we could all do our bit :-)

Olio is a fantastic app which connects you to other like minded people who have excess food which you can share locally, also much food is donated by cafe's/restaurants & supermarkets on their sell by date or just over, often on the night of a restaurant closing for the day, which they can't sell. You connect to a representive & request it.. or give away & somebody else requests it.. Simples. Download the App and see who's helping to recycle in your area, give it a go
Let's all help our prickly friends before they diminish more in numbers
