In response to the Covid-19 crisis Ballycastle Community Development Group have been working in the background to secure funding to enable us to support vulnerable sections of our community and other local voluntary groups, to date we have;
1. Developed this online information and support hub https://www.ballycastleconnect.org
Don't forget to sign up for our newsletters (see link at the bottom of the page)
2. Raised over £3,500 for Ballycastle Foodbank, (massive thanks to all those who have donated) and obtained funding to purchase a new fridge freezer for them.
3. Working with Good Morning Ballycastle identified a number of self-isolating elderly people and are currently delivering over 100 meals and deserts a week to support them – provided by Lunar Catering
We are currently working on some other initiatives and support which will be developed and rolled out over the coming weeks. #stayhomeandsavelives
