British Asia News By Sushma Lobo
Bradford March 31 (SL/BAN) British Asia News catch up with AALYA (Always Around Lending You A Hand) a charity based in Bradford, Yorkshire, who have been supporting the elderly. They have been dropping off much needed food parcels to residentials supporting age 60-93 year olds, the UK’s high risk group who the government have asked to stay in doors for at least 12 weeks as this Coronavirus Pandemic peaks in the UK and passes. As the elderly and vulnerable callout for support AALYA has supported with 102 food parcels given out last week the first week of their initiative.
As they call for donations, the community pulled together and donated to them and they are giving it to the much-needed elderly. These are our #CommunityHeroes. The heroes who stepped forward when the government called for 250,000 much needed volunteers from the community and received a response of 750,000 people! This is our Britain people, superheroes #communityheroes. When it’s needed, we all support each other, be proud not just of our NHS staff force working day and night but all the volunteering #communityheroes out there making our support infrastructure in the UK solid! Well done AALYA keep up the good work.
