Can help achieve a solution
‘Inspiring Communities – Improving Lives’
Colchester anti loo roll brigade was originally set up by Peter Dutch as a response to the panic buying during the early days of the Covid 19 pandemic; with the initial aim of setting up a support network for those who needed help to get through lockdown.
Who We Are
As the pandemic grew, so did the group. We set up a huge support network which became a lifeline for our local Elderly, disabled and isolating community and arranged prescription delivery services, provided education services as well as providing food, gifts and much needed positivity to our local NHS and care homes; which included Elvis concerts and bagpipes to name a few. We quickly became extremely successful in getting help where and when it was needed.We provided 15000 masks to our local care network and linked them up with suppliers after running a highly successful campaign with St Helena hospice during the PPE crisis.
We rehoused 3 families who’s houses caught fire during lockdown and we are nearing completion on re building one house and have created and completed many DIY sos projects through our wonderful community.
Through donations we then managed to provide furniture and goods to people in need; referred to us from the various agencies we started to work with.
We make a difference in the lives of people in the community, where help is needed most.
