‘Winshill Together ‘
Project Category: Registered charity
We are a small charity called Winshill Neighbourhood Resource Centre, we have a small community centre in the the Heart of Winshill in Burton Upon Trent, We would normally do lots of activities and events during the week and especially in all the summer holidays, we have lots of groups and organisations that also run from the centre and as soon as the lock down begun, we set up a Facebook page called ‘Winshill Together ‘ with 2 other community groups, Wishes 4 Winshill, Grubs up and our charity WNRC, we pulled our resources together to set up a food bank, befriending service, shopping, collecting and delivering medication. We have been doing this since the lock-down and now we have over 114 households signed up for support in many different ways. We delivered 470 Easter eggs at Easter and made and Delivered 176 Afternoon Teas to our elderly residents, we have supported those on Furlough, self Employed, those shielding and those on their own or self isolating, we are only a small team of 5 and some extra delivery drivers as to keep the risk of contamination down and because our centre is small to also keep 2m apart.
