Bovalley Community Association & SSE Renewables helping vulnerable people during the coronavirus pandemic.

Bovalley Community Association received £4,000 from SSE’s Slieve Kirk Community Fund

Bovalley Community Association recognised that their local community was going to be impacted by the pandemic restrictions. They were concerned about their elderly and vulnerable residents and quickly mobilised a network of volunteers to provide support.

The Association gained emergency funding from SSE Renewables to enable the volunteers to deliver care packages, food packages and activity packs to 300 local residents who were vulnerable and self isolating.

The funding supported the group’s activities throughout the pandemic and they were able to distribute 150 food packages and 153 care packages in the Bovalley Area of Limavady.

“Most of our residents are elderly and live alone so to receive these care packages meant so much more than just food and supplies, it represented a community willing to support each other during difficult and challenging time. For this, we are all so grateful to SSE Renewables.”
Janice McClay Chairperson, Bovalley Community Association
