This week we published the South West Covid-19 community resources to help people staying at home with their businesses. From mental health, cultural resources, parent guides and more, we hope to collect a living resource list to help people through these tough times.
Sign up to the weekly newsletter that will tell you about our resource updates and a roundup of good news.
Some good news
The sun has been a blessing and a curse this week (hence the tropical cover image). We’ve been soaking up the rays from our bedroom floors, balconies and gardens… wherever we can! With the sun came some sunny news we wanted to share:
- Copies of the Innovate Bristol book were donated to the city of Bristol secondary schools as part of the Innovate Bristol Collaboration project.
- The owners of Psychopomp gin distillery have been busy making hand sanitiser to raise money for The Grand Appeal. They were giving it away for free in exchange for donations for the charity and raised £2,488.52! They are no longer supplying to the public but will be delivering the hand sanitiser to local emergency services and organisations helping those at high risk.
