A group in Wrexham have been using wooden pallets, from The Land Adventure Play Project, to create benches for residents who are self isolating to sit comfortably in their gardens.

The 'We Are Plas Madoc' group have also been building planter troughs for local children and delivering them with compost and seeds so they can grow strawberries and sunflowers.

The group, MaesNi, which usually runs a pop-up cafe, in Bangor has started delivering fresh food to over-70s every Tuesday. It also gives them a way to keep in touch with their neighbours in the Maesgeirchen estate.

It has also been working with Penrhyn House, a local recovery centre, to deliver hot meals to residents in need.

Additionally, the North Wales Recovery Community has crowdfunded more than £9,000 to help others pay for food, gas and electricity.
