Children in Need
We’ve been really busy here at WT making cakes and biscuits to help raise money for this year’s Children in Need appeal.
Not only is Children in Need a funder of our Youth Club activities – thanks CiN, it’s also a brilliant charity that does fantastic work in a whole range of areas.
Whilst we’ve not been able to raise money in the usual way – as our café is closed to the public, we were thrilled to have been able to raise £65 for this years Children in Need. Well done everyone!
Working Together’s AGM – Tues 24th November 7pm
Because of Covid restrictions the meeting will need to be held digitally. Everyone is welcome to join us on Zoom. Please contact us for the link.
We’re planning lots of exciting things to share with you and it will be great to see you. The agenda will be posted here on our website shortly.
Our work with Ludlow Food Bank…
Working Together were thrilled to have been invited to attend the visit of the High Sheriff of Shropshire and the Mayor of Ludlow to the Rockspring Centre when they visited the Food Bank (picture above).
Some of you will already have read or heard about Working Together’s involvement with the Ludlow Food Bank.
The Food Bank is based in the Baptist Church – at the other end of the Rockspring Centre – and does an incredible job supplying food parcels to those in need.
This year has seen the food bank increase the number of food parcels it has distributed and, as a result, has seen an increase in the amount of food it is having to handle. The small room that the food bank uses has become full and additional storage space was needed urgently, so we offered to help out.
Here, at Working Together, we’ve not been able to open our café because of Covid restrictions, so we have been able to offer some additional storage space to the Food Bank.
Our members have really enjoyed moving the food to be stored at WT and have been busy counting all the items and sorting the food into order – by it Best Before End date. We will look after the stock until it’s needed in the food bank.
We’re thrilled to be able to support the brilliant work that the Food Bank does – we look forward to this being a long term co-operation.
Not only is this an opportunity for members to have an important role in contributing to the work of the Food Bank, but its also an opportunity to learn about stock rotation, best before end dates and helps with numeracy and independent living skills.
Members, staff, volunteers and trustees observed a social distanced two minutes silence at 11am on 11th November – remembering all those who lost their lives during the First World War, Second World War and the wars and the conflicts that have followed.
Happy Birthday to Rachael
