Supporting "Free Food Friday" at The Richmond Bar
With restrictions gradually lifting, there is light at the end of the tunnel for those suffering from the effects of Covid-19 closures. However, we’re not out of the shadows yet. Many of Pattaya’s most vulnerable have been left with reduced or no income over the past eight months, without access to much needed supplies like food, masks and hand sanitizer.
During Covid-19, since March 2020, staff and a few regular customers from the Richmond Bar have given out over 10,000 free food bags to the local Thai people. This was an idea thought up by Russel East and Paul Cross to give something back to the people who have made us “foreigners” so welcome. With the help of overseas donations, we have been able to keep this going and continue to help the local Thais. Here’s how you can share the love with help and and donate some money all amount help us.
We need more money for this charity and have together with Richmond Family Sports bar and Globsub in Pattaya set up a Charity night where we has a goal to take in 50.000 baht so we still can give food every week to this people.
The Thais of Jomtien are hard-working people and they rely on tourists to make a living, but with no government support, they are currently struggling and this likely to be the case until at least mid-2021… maybe even longer.
We could not do this if it wasn’t for the kind donations we receive from our friends from around the world. For example, a small donation of £5.00 ( ฿200 or 58sek) pays for approximately 8 food bags, each providing 2 meals.
Below are a few images of the team in action and the grateful Thai people.
If you would like to contribute and keep the “Free Food Fridays” going, then please “DONATE”. We appreciate all donations and it REALLY does make a difference during this challenging time.
Saturday 5 December we going on Richmond Bar have a great Charity Night and we hope you and you friend can support this charity to help us to make this working as long they need us. If you are in Pattaya you are welcome to the Bar in 5 Dec, on soi Welcome Jomtien
