This has been a difficult year for everyone.
Thanks to the generosity of our supporters and the continuous efforts of our volunteers and staff, Oasis Warndon Community Hub, a local registered charity, has been able to support the most vulnerable families within our community. On top of our usual practical support, we have provided families in desperate need with cooked meals and food hampers.
Here is some of the feedback we get:
- One family who received weekly food parcels throughout the first lockdown said “Can't thank you enough for your help and support you've given us thank you so much really appreciate everything you have done”
- Another family who has received more casual food support said “Great little hub that helps so many families in the area as well as school”
At this time of year the plight of many of our families can feel even more hopeless. We would like to build on the the positive impact that we have had by providing ongoing support throughout the winter months. We are working with local partners to source food items from donations, but need to add to those to be able to provide an appropriate and nutritious range of family food items.
Your support will allow us to provide not only basic food items to see these families through the winter, but will also enable us to provide families access to our Hub Team.
Families can access a number of weekly sessions to seek advice and support though our Oasis Living Room projects. The Living Rooms provide warmth, food, company and fun activities. One family recently commented "This is our safe space, it really is like a home from home the kids even run in and kick off their shoes!".
Throughout the year our whole community has shown huge generosity towards the support that we provide and we are hoping you can help us with this. However please only give if you can we know that times are difficult for everybody and helping us to share our appeal is equally appreciated too.
The more we can raise, the more families we can support, it will make a huge difference to all of them.
