A response to social needs arising from the COVID-19 pandemic
During the period of lockdown due to COVID-19 the Parish Councils of St Stephen’s, Richmond, and St Bartholomew’s, Burnley, agreed to begin, in partnership with Anglicare, a Relief Programme to operate out of St Stephen’s Church as from the first week of May. The mission will be called The Marjorie McGregor COVID-19 Relief Programme (MMRP). It operating on Fridays & Saturday. Thankfully the need has diminished. In the time the MMRP operated we served approximately 400 people, mostly overseas students and people on restricted work Visa’s who were out of work.
THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HELPED WITH THE MMRP.
