Tamar Grow Local have been provided with a brand-new website courtesy of Plymouth and Bristol based Design Agency, Studiovine, in recognition of all the additional hard work recently invested by the staff in relation to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Tamar Grow Local have seen a huge uplift in Food Hub usage and as the Coronavirus pandemic took hold, people turned to the Food Hub for supply of local produce as it became increasingly difficult to shop via supermarkets. With the supply chain for the Food Hub showing great resilience, due to sourcing from mainly smaller, local producers within the Tamar Valley, the service has provided extremely popular at this critical time.
To help cope with the extra capacity, especially in regard to deliveries, additional volunteers have come from an unlikely source, the Plymouth Raiders Basketball Club, who’s staff and players have been helping with delivery runs as much as three times a week. Customers, local councils and Tamar Grow Local’s Board of Directors have also stepped in to help with deliveries on Friday afternoons.
It was via the partnership with Plymouth Raider’s that Studiovine, who are the team’s Official Brand Partner, stepped forward and offered to develop a new website as a way of supporting during this challenging time.
Tamar Grow Local Director, Richard Mollard said, “We’re incredibly grateful to Lee Nathan and his team at Studiovine for their support at this time.”
“Everyone at Tamar Grow Local, employees and volunteers have gone above and beyond to ensure we meet the growing demand, and more importantly, ensure we continue to provide food deliveries to those being forced to self-isolate and who need additional support with supplies.
“Our website has needed a revamp for some time, so when Lee offered to help in that regard, we were incredibly grateful, and now we have a site that truly represents the brilliant work we carry out.”
Studiovine Managing Director, Lee Nathan added, “We have a close working relationship with everyone at the Plymouth Raiders, so when Richard approached us for our support we were only too happy to support them. We are currently living in uncertain times so anything we can do to support others business then we will.”
