3. Get inspired

There are so many examples of Get Together activities that have brought people together.

Gold Food for Life School Washingborough Academy didn't want lockdown in Covvid-19 to stop their connection with their community, so their school kitchen served hot meals to the elderly in their community - and set up a lunchtime call with pupils!
