The Community Hub in the Shires Shopping Centre is currently closed along with all of our Youth Clubs, and will remain so for the foreseeable future. We will keep you updated amid this unprecedented time.We are still working remotely and are doing all we can to support the local Community.
Since the Hub closed we have been collecting and distributing regular food donations from Marks & Spencer.Following Mother’s Day Marks & Spencer had a large amount of unsold flowers which we collected and distributed to a community Group. Also, we supported McDonalds and Greggs following their closure, by collecting a large food donation from each which was given to a boarding school and a local COVID-19 Support group with a large proportion of elderly and vulnerable residents. We have also been supplying food to a local shelter for Rough Sleepers.
We have also taken the time to call some of the regular Hub visitors to “check-in” with them and to establish whether there is anything further we can do to support them and to signpost to local service providers.
