Community sports club transporting essential supplies to vulnerable on Aylesbury estate

Volunteers on a community sports project are using their van to distribute food and supplies to people in need on a nearby estate.
Helpers at Burgess Sports, which runs holiday and after-school projects and rugby team Southwark Tigers, have made 160 meals using fresh ingredients: chicken lasagna and vegetarian stew.
The project, founded by Vernon Nine-Dunn and run by chief executive Alejandra Teixido, was backed by Camila, Catalina and Josephine and cook Franco.
They have been working with the Creation Trust to identify individuals and families on the Aylesbury estate that are most in need during pandemic.
They have also been talking to the residents to offer support and encouragement – while keeping a two-metre distance.
Vernon said: “We have got some wonderful helpers we are now trying to work out how to get the food to the people who need it.”
Alejandra added: “We are very happy to do this – but we would urge others to stay safe and stay at home.”
