Lizard Point Holiday Park at Mullion has donated £1,365 worth of food to Trussell Trust Foodbanks.

After Government instruction to shut the park, the team took the decision to provide essential resources to those in need as a result of the coronavirus.

As the park was ramping up for the start of the Easter holidays, it had full stocks of fresh items, which the team didn’t want to go to waste, and parks up and down the country have also donated household items like toilet rolls, antibacterial spray and blue roll to schools and GP/medical facilities, as well as food banks.

Social distancing and well-publicised stories of panic-buying and stockpiling mean that those who are most in need, including the elderly and those with pre-existing health conditions, are at risk of not being able to get hold of important supplies.

There are many in the community who rely on foodbanks to survive and in the current climate they have been struggling to meet their demands.

Clive Thomas, from Lizard Point Holiday Park, formerly known as Mullion Holiday Park, said: “We’re all proud to be a part of the community and contribute to the local economy, so we wanted to make sure we’re still able to give back when the park is closed.

"We’ve all seen how much demand there has been at food banks, so we were more than happy to do our bit to support Trussell Trust Foodbanks.”

The site is owned by Parkdean Resorts, which has 67 parks across England, Scotland and Wales, employing 9,000 people in peak season.

The company has already announced that no employee will be made redundant as a result of coronavirus and the company is paying 100per cent salary.

It hopes to reopen on May 1.
