Helping the Homeless and People in Need in Cambridgeshire

I am not a business or charity, I am a Facebook Group which has been running for many years. It was originally set up to support the Homeless in the local are and Cambridge, but due to current circumstances I have been focusing more on people in need in the local area. I live in St.Ives and receive regular donations from a major Supermarket and people within the Community. These donations are mainly food, drink and toiletries, but sometimes other things also. I have been doing food parcels for people that need them and may be able to help with odd Items that people have been struggling to get hold of such as Pasta and Eggs. I am currently in discussions with St.Ives Town Council with regards to co-ordinating efforts with themselves and other groups in the area. All the food parcels that I put together are FREE OF CHARGE, as I receive my donations Free of Charge.
