 We have recently put together parcels of non-perishable food and drink items, household essentials and personal care items for those most affected by Covid - 19.

Covid - 19 has had a heavy impact on everyone but vulnerable families have been affected the most. For these families the impact extends to every factor from social, environmental to economic.
Our aim is to provide some assistance with essential items during this hard time.



As a consequence of our ongoing relationship with both charities, we were able to tailor each parcel to individual families; helping to provide some tangible support where needed.

Where did the donations come from?

Donations came from three main sources:

  • Ada & Albert - money raised from our clothing boutique, fundraising events and donations was used to purchase essential items for our parcels.
  • Boutique customers and volunteers - we welcomed donations from our customers who very generously donated cupboard essentials, household items and personal care items.
  • The Community - after announcing our need for donations onto our social media platforms we received an amazing response from the local community who donated a wide selection of items.

How have we tailored each parcel?


Ada & Albert have long been supporting both The Clarion Housing Group and Threshers Day Nursery with previous projects of:


  • The Clarion Housing Group - Provided essential items such as beds, carpets, bedding and curtains to families with children living below the poverty line.
  • Threshers Day Nursery - Provided new wellies to 20 pre-school children to enable them to attend forest school.

    We continue to maintain a strong relationship with both charities and from this we were provided with a description of certain family needs, enabling us to identify what products would be suitable.
