Continuing the city’s long standing tradition of chocolate and philanthropy, local business York Cocoa Works donated 50 boxes of chocolate treats to York CVS, a local social action organisation, as a thank you for their hard-working volunteers.
York CVS delivered the chocolate boxes as a thank you to staff and volunteers from Healthwatch York and York Dementia Action Alliance who have spent the last 7 weeks taking and making hundreds of phone calls to vulnerable people, and people in crisis during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Due to the generosity of York Cocoa Works, York CVS also delivered 20 boxes to The Supper Collective; a collective of local independent restaurants, cafes and bakeries, safely delivering free nutritious meals for the vulnerable, isolated, NHS and the homeless across the city.
Alison Semmence, Chief Executive, York CVS said:
“We are particularly glad to be able to give a little something back to The Supper Collective, because they’ve provided vital support to people referred to them by York CVS. They deliver free, nutritious meals for people to heat up at home. They’ve been an absolute lifeline for some of the isolated and vulnerable people York CVS has supported.”
