NET is a registered charity that relies on public and private grants to maintain its services to the over 60's and their carers. During the current crisis NET has been called upon more and more to support the wider community. Whilst we have been receiving support from the community to stock our food bank over the years, demand has now outstripped supply. Local supermarkets have been amazing in donating foodstuff for us to distribute and giving us priority access to purchase stocks. Leeds council are still honouring our contracts allowing us to divert funds to this cause. Other big business are supporting by donations. Our funds are now beginning to run low. Any donation to see us through the current crisis and to allow us to continue supporting our community in the future would be appreciated.

Quick Update from Monica in Dover Street 1630 Hrs Saturday 16-05-2020 . We are still here and still supporting the community. All NET Staff and volunteers have been working tirelessly since 12 th. March to support not only NET Clients but also 100's in the community who have asked for support directly to us and through the LCC Helpdesk. We are still sourcing food, still collecting, still packing and still delivering throughout LS15 LS25 LS26 WF10. As the mobile befrienders know from years of experience, covering 46 sq. miles does involve a lot of travel each week. This has only increased with volunteers now delivering food parcels and an ever increasing number of prescriptions. Thanks also to the Garforth Lions who have supported our volunteers with deliveries, collections and donated to our funds for food purchases. We are all determined to continue, no matter what obstacles we meet. We will continue to support the community and remember the VE Day song which has always been the NET Events closing anthem "We'll meet again" With your support we will always be here for you, and the community. What keeps me going are the thank you cards and phone calls left daily. A moving tribute to all of us is that two young girls who live in Kippax asked if they could raise money for food parcels by holding a sponsored cycle ride. They are still going. Please support them. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/gaitlyesforfood Love to you all, Take Care, Keep Safe, Monica XXX You are probably fed up with the sight of tins of beans and boxes of cereals on the same old tables, for food parcels by now so here are some photos from VE Day. We could not hold our planned events but we did manage to distribute bunting and our volunteers supplied cakes and refreshments at street parties in the area ( observing social distancing of course ) It wasn’t the usual extravaganza but it did enable some of the communities to come together.
NET Still Supporting the Community Dover Street Friday 8 th. May Was The most decorated Street? NET Clients & Volunteers should have been celebrating VE Day today with a fabulous party. With lots of bunting, flags and goodies generously donated by MGN Events. We will have the party but will just postpone until it is safe. We will meet again. Bless you Rae Littlewood - Speaking to you Friday morning reminiscing about the war years. During this pandemic 2020 it reminded you how everyone pulled together during the Second World War, very similar things are happening today! Monica xx
Two of our clients were closely involved with the Normandy Landings but never actually met until attending NET events. Albert (Ted) Edward Stuart 96 years! from Scholes attends Dover Street luncheon clubs, he served in The Royal Navy. Kenneth Waite from Garforth served with the British Army Armoured Division. They were both presented with the Legion of Honour medal from the French Government in recent years. Sadly Ken passed away late last year. However his daughter & son in law would be delighted and proud if his photo was used in memory. He absolutely adored everything NET stood for and enjoyed every minute that he spent at NET. Robert ‘Bob’ Campbell. 96 years. Bob was in the Royal Air Force. He was a Wireless Operator / Air Gunner, his crew flew the Lancaster Bombers. His greatest achievement was he and his crew rescued 20 prisoners of war from Pomigliano Nr Naples Italy. His favourite film is the Dambusters which he watched again on VE day remembering his brave friends! If you would like to see tins of beans and see how we are operating go to our news page. NEWS
