North East Wilds and Stomping Grounds have delivered over 50 food parcels over the past 4 weeks to women in Chopwell village as part of their Forest Lunch Club project, supported by the Well Newcastle Gateshead Arts Fund.
They said: “It’s sad not to be out in the woods cooking and crafting with this group of wonderful women, but we’re really glad that we can support in other ways. We’ve also delivered some grow kits and with thanks to The Pickle Palace we’re able to deliver some bedding plants to some families too. If we can’t take the group into the great outdoors, we’ll bring it to them instead! With thanks to Well Newcastle Gateshead for their support and flexibility at this time.”
