The team at New Spitalfields tenant Ronny Liu’s Cook’s Delight and Sunnyfield Veg have donated a pallet of Oishi Japanese pre-cooked gyoza to the Enfield Caribbean Association, to feed the elderly and vulnerable in Enfield.
Enfield Caribbean Association (ECA) has an average of 60 elderly and vulnerable people who they regularly assist and its level of support has of course been ramped up during these difficult times.
The charity’s Dionne John told us: “It has become very difficult to source and secure donations of fresh fruit such as apples and oranges, plus vegetables like carrots, potatoes, tomatoes, lemons, cucumbers, onions and peppers as food distribution is being centralised.
“We aim to support our community through the remainder of the isolation period and would welcome any support. We understand that this is a tough time for individuals and businesses alike. We are appealing for financial support from our community and if we can raise enough money, we could purchase at cost price from any trader who supports us for the first three weeks with donations of fruits and veg.”
Ronny, pictured with wife Sue, was delighted to be able to support the ECA: “We are classified as key workers and I believe we have a responsibility to maintain social harmony and stability. If our companies can help some disadvantaged groups during this pandemic, I am very happy to contribute and I do not think there is anything great about it,” he said.
“We need solidarity and co-operation, our core values, to work together to stop this pandemic.”
