Individuals and groups across the two counties have set up various types of fundraisers, competitions and other creative content during their time in lockdown.
CEO Gareth Lambe says there is a few people in particular they have been impressed with.
Speaking to KCLR, he says during these difficult times, people like to stay connected:
“We’ve seen a very big surge in activity in all our apps and services of course theres not just Facebook, there’s Instagram and WhatsApp as well, so we’re seeing a lot of increase in messages, WhatsApp video calling, usage on Facebook, the service has always been around connecting people and bringing people closer together, so I think this pandemic accelerated that for a lot of people”.
