Happy New Year!!! Fingers crossed for a better 2021 and I hope this email finds you and your family well.
I just wanted to give you a little insight into what has been happening with the progress of the hub and share some feedback from one of our families.
The unloved store room is now a fully functional, safe and fun play area. Thankfully we have been able to invite families in to use the space between the lockdowns and although we are not encouraging families to mix during this current period, we are enabling families who live in cramped conditions without any outdoor space to be able to utilise the playroom for private sessions.
Like most we are adapting to the ever changing conditions and we are finding the hub a great asset. Throughout the restrictions we have sourced, packed and provided many packs which has helped families get through these strange times, more than anything it reinforces the fact that they are not alone and there is still support available for them. With our Christmas deliveries we are nearing 1,000 packs which have included food, technology, internet packages, pamper packs, childrens activity sets, sensory packs and many many more.
We still have work to do on the hub, however the end is in sight and we hope to have the accessible toilet and last few tasks complete very soon. We did plan to have an opening event where we would invite everyone who has made this possible, but we have been very limited with all of the restrictions. However our favourite phrase is “Never Say Never”, so watch this space!
Finally I would like to share with you the footage and feedback put together by one of our talented families and say a massive thank you for all of your help: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3dBkzbxVSw&t=41s
Take care, keep safe and hopefully we will see you again in the not too distant future.
