The lockdown has exacerbated the problems many of our community members who already suffer serious anxiety and mental health issues, making every day tasks far more difficult. Many of our community members have endured long term furloughs with possibility of redundancy once lockdown has ended. Resulting in increased levels of poverty and deprivation. In an attempt to lift spirits and help families bond in meaningful ways we are proposing a number of trips and activities (physical distancing permitting) to for families and young people in the area.
Middlefield Community Project received £4,752 to provide post lockdown trips and activities for families and children. The funding allowed them to work with smaller groups and purchase equipment that could be sterilised, ensuring they fully adhered to social distancing guidelines. 50 families, including 120 children, benefitted from activities that helped to bring stability in a chaotic situation, and were greatly appreciated by the families involved.
Any gift you can make, large or small, can have a huge impact on the lives of many. Businesses, associations and private individuals are being urged to support this appeal and donate whatever they can now.Donate
