Thirty hampers filled with treats have been delivered to residents who have particularly been struggling during lockdown.

Reverend Becca Rogers at St John’s Church in The Walks, King’s Lynn, said she wanted to let isolated people, such as those shielding, know they were being thought of.

Members of the congregation filled treat-sized hampers with goodies such as chocolates, biscuits and bubble bath along with a handwritten massage of support.

Rev Jon Price collects the hampers inside St John’s Church for vulnerable people.

Reverend Jon Price, who also serves at St John’s, said: “After Harvest  Festival, we gave the usual items we received to the night shelter as we support the work they do. 

“But we also wanted to help people who we have made connections with during this busy and panic-ridden time.”

Rev Price and his team have also been helping residents navigate online programmes such as Zoom so they can join in virtual coffee mornings or chat to relatives who live at a distance.

He said: “The response we have received has been incredible, really positive and very moving.”
