Holiday Hunger Project: 

  • As of today and following 5 weeks of hard, but very worthwhile work, the “Holiday Hunger” ‘Pilot Project’ 2019 has now been come to an end.
  • Thanks therefore to everyone (both Club Members & CTiD) who have Helped
  • The Project was a resounding success
  • Despite an initially disappointing ‘sign up’ and ‘engagement’ rate – some 16 individual Families and a total of 39 Children became involved and were helped.
  • Over the 5 week period – we have ‘prepared, packed and delivered’

           ….. more than 575 free Lunches 

  • All of which were ‘Personally Delivered’ to Families on Southbrook, Middlemore, the Grange, Headlands and Ashby Fields
  • The ‘Thanks’, appreciation and nothing but ‘positive feedback’ from Parents and the Children involved – was both encouraging, humbling and rewarding.
  • Whilst some of the ‘Family situations’ seen; were troubling and disturbing.
