Communities are pulling together, checking in on their elderly, offering words of encouragement to one another and donating vital supplies to those that need them most.

Charities, which support the elderly and the vulnerable are now, more than ever, vitally important.

Despite a greater demand on their services Cork Penny Dinners has assured people help will always be there for them if they need it.

In support of the trojan work Caitriona Twomey and the team at Cork Penny Dinners do, those in a position to do so have been donating non-perishable foods to the charity and the collective efforts are a testament to what can be achieved when communities pull together.

Taking to social media to thank the businesses, individuals and families who have donated to Cork Penny Dinners, Caitriona Twomey said she is "grateful and appreciative of the amazing outpouring of love and kindness to Penny Dinners". "It's pure Cork and it’s what will get us through," she said.
