As many of you will know, we operate a food bank to support local people that are experiencing food poverty. The demand has increased recently due to the cost-of-living crisis.
So, to make the support we offer accessible to as many people as possible, we have been working with the Kibworth Mead Academy’s (KMA) family support worker to showcase the services offered by us and our partners. That support is mutual; the school has recently installed a food bank collection basket for use by staff and students. We look forward to working closely KMA to support local families.
We already have collection baskets in the primary schools in Kibworth, Fleckney and Great Glen. If you would like to donate, you can simply drop it in the basket when you do the school run. To keep up to date with the items we need, download the ‘Bank the Food’ app to your smart phone or tablet to see information in real-time: www.bankthefood.org
We’re really excited to announce a new Thursday drop-in session. Starting on Thursday 9 March, workers from Richmond Fellowship will be in our café providing information about mental health wellbeing and recovery support service called Life Links. The service provides a number of different support networks, offering flexibility to choose how to receive support depending in your individual needs. This is delivered face-to-face, online, over the phone or via group work – whichever is the best way for you. They will be with us on the second Thursday of each month. To find out more about Life Links, go to: www.rflifelinks.co.uk
