OP-REGEN deliver over the Christmas period

OP-REGEN and The Bread and Butter Thing teamed up over Christmas to support the most vulnerable households across Manchester

OP-REGEN volunteers have continued to support the most vulnerable during the pandemic. During the course of the first lockdown, OP-REGEN volunteers helped to support over 1,000 in need households across Manchester, delivering over 2,500 food parcels.

Over the Christmas period, OP-REGEN teamed up with The Bread and Butter Thing (TBBT). The Bread and Butter Thing (TBBT) is a charity that makes life more affordable for people on a low income by providing support with food, energy and everyday essentials.

OP-REGEN volunteers gave up their time to help package food parcels households across Manchester. This support will continue throughout 2021 with teams of OP-REGEN volunteers taking on the opportunity to serve again and be part of the solution during the Covid-19 pandemic.

OP-REGEN is a volunteering project that offers a platform for ex-military personnel to recognise their inherent skills and empowers them to demonstrate these skills to the wider community. For those that have landed on hard times, the project aims to support these individuals and their families to re-integrate back into society and to have a meaningful positive impact on the environment in which they reside; additionally, for those not in employment the projects aims to assist in their journey back into the workplace.

Although focused on ex-military, more generally the project is supported by volunteers from all backgrounds including Corporate UK and encourages these individuals to work together, leading to greater increase in community cohesion and safer neighbourhoods.
