A Wilmslow man who started dropping off cakes and sandwiches to his neighbours and friends to cheer them up at the beginning of the coronavirus lockdown is now preparing up to 500 meals a day to help vulnerable people in the local area.
Soon after he started delivering the cakes it became apparent to Robert Topping that a lot more people were in need of some support, food and essential items in the area.
Robert has now been joined by a team of 30 volunteers to supply meals, snacks and other essential items to up to 225 homes every day - with the help of local bakers who have been donating bread rolls and cakes.
Robert told wilmslow.co.uk "It grew because after delivering to a friend's parents I identified there is a desperate need for action. I found it heartbreaking how many people are alone and helpless. It's been such an eye-opener. I'm very emotional at times but I can't stop now until this is over and I'm just desperate for donations so that I never have to say we can't deliver food today."
He added "Friends and family help out and we supply and feed to full residential units in the local area and this is about to grow even more. We solely relying on donations from the public of food, assistance and packaging."
If you would like to support their efforts then donations can be made via Robert's gofundme page.
