Community Covid-19 support Easingwold and area – May 2020


Coronavirus Community Support Fund

Funding from the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by The National Lottery Community Fund, has helped us to continue to carry on throughout the pandemic delivering shopping, meals on wheels, prescriptions and telephone befriending.
Thanks to the Government for making this possible


Easingwold Running Club
Members of Easingwold Running Club have raised funds for us by undertaking challenges during lock-down. They have had fun doing it and it has kept their running shoes busy!

The photo shows our Chief Officer Di accepting the cheque from Colin Fletcher and other key members of the Running Club. All socially distanced of course!

We are very grateful to them for all their efforts and the nearly £1000 raised.


Easingwold District Community Care Association and Easingwold District Lions working together during the Covid-19 crisis.

The last two Saturdays saw us organising 60 afternoon teas from Morning Coffee, Afternoon Tea on Long Street, delivered to some of our Meals on wheels clients. All made possible by the generous donation from Easingwold District Lions to whom we are very grateful. We know the teas were greatly appreciated.

Photos show a tea plus the Lions who kindly delivered them. It’s great when two local charities work together especially in times like these. Thank you to all involved and for Brian and his team for preparing the teas for us.

EDCCA and North Yorkshire Police

 

Our fabulous Knit and Natter group who meet once a month at Springhill Court have knitted some more brilliant Bobby Buddies for North Yorkshire Police to use when they are dealing with incidents where there are children. They are really useful where children need to be reassured or to break the ice. Thank you Ladies!
The photo shows PCSO Chris Wood with some of the Buddies.

 


Ask D.A.V.E – Dementia Awareness in the Villages and Easingwold

Last Friday in the Galtres Centre, EDCCA and Dementia Forward launched an initiative called DAVE. The aim of this initiative is to raise awareness of Dementia with the opportunity to sign up for free training provided by Dementia Forward who also offer support for those affected and advice for those concerned about memory problems.  

A DAVE leaflet gives information about all aspects of treatment, care and support plus activities in Easingwold which are readily accessible to Dementia Sufferers. Woven Branches Day Centre for example which is run by EDCCA in Springhill Court on Mondays and Thursdays from 10am until 3pm. Anyone can sign up for the training and we hope that more businesses will sign their staff up so we can recognise them as DAVE friendly.  

We have DAVE bookmarks too and a DAVE card which can be carried by those with Dementia in case they feel bewildered or lost at any time. The card gives information about who to call if they need help.  

For more information about anything to do with DAVE, please call EDCCA.


As a registered charity EDCCA works hard to support people in need and improve their quality of life in Easingwold and District.

We know that there are many people who because of their age or for health reasons rely on the services that we provide such as using the community car scheme to attend a medical appointment or being visited by a friendly volunteer through our Befriending Scheme.

We have much to be proud of and we thank you for your continued support.
