Droitwich and Worcester Rugby clubs helping get food parcels to residents during pandemic

A WORCESTER Warriors Community Foundation representative has been supporting Droitwich Rugby Club and the Droitwich CVS pack and deliver food during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Dan Hart, who has been operating from Droitwich RFC’s clubhouse on Hanbury Road which is being used as a base for putting together food parcels being distributed to hundreds of households across the town.

Dan said: “The Warriors Community Foundation is always looking to support the most vulnerable people and this week we visited Droitwich Rugby Club which is running an amazing project over the lockdown period.

“The project is already supporting hundreds of people in the local community with a further 300 households being supported in the next week.

“Droitwich are doing an amazing job supporting the community in a time of need.

“To see rugby bringing communities together is what it’s all about and we are delighted we could help them out.”

Volunteers at Droitwich pack the food and drink into different-sized packs which provide meals for five days for those affected by the Coronavirus.

Craig Browne from Droitwich RFC said: “With the current situation concerning Covid-19, we wanted to do our bit for the community, whilst ensuring we’re keeping all of our volunteers safe.

“As a club we are supporting Droitwich CVS who work with those who are in need at this current time.”

Among the tasks the rugby club members have been undertaking are sourcing, packing and delivering food to our local community and those in need.

The parcels include various food items and snacks to make five meals for five days for families and their loved ones.

These are made into family packs, couples’ packs and singles’ packs.

“We have been overwhelmed by the number of volunteers that have offered to support the club ranging from senior players, parents of M&Js and the wider membership,” added Craig.
