Covid-19 and it's impact on life has caused huge stress and confusion for so many in our community. In normal time, Ladies of Steel are set up to provide social, sporting and educational activities for the children, youth and local community but during the last 20 months they have gone well above and beyond what they were set up to do. They have brilliantly helped those that seemed to have fallen through the gaps of government help during the intense lockdown periods and the period since, by supplying food parcels, door step chats and activity packs for those in need. They offered Winter Warmer packs for pensioner along with information and guidance to help explain what was happening with Covid restrictions, as a lot of people didn’t understand what they could and couldn’t do. Most of the people they helped were living alone, were in the shielded category and had no family nearby. This wonderful community effort has made a massive difference to those they helped and we are proud to support you Ladies of Steel!
