Here at Castle Hill Community Centre, we have acted during the COVID lockdowns to support our local area, Whitton, Whitehouse, and Castle Hill. We set up our home delivery food bank during the first lockdown which we called Community Pantry @ Castle Hill Community Centre. This was with support of many organisations such as,
North Wet Ipswich Big Local Trust
Suffolk County Council
Fare Share, Asda
We have also had more support from other organisations such as
Bramford Road Allotments
The Mermaid Pub
Global Van Hire
As well as weekly donations from local residents. As a result of funding from the National Lottery Community Grant, Council Locality and Council Area Committee we have been able to maintain this valuable service for our local residents.
However, with the easing of COVID restrictions, we are changing our approach, opening our doors at Castle Hill Community Centre for residents in need and moving to a WEEKLY Walk-In service from Tuesday 08 June 2021, 10am – 11.30am. This will enable our resident’s personal choice in the items they need. We will supply a bag in which items that are needed can be placed and whilst funds last, there will be no charge.
If you feel this would help you at this time, please come along on Tuesday 08 June 2021 10am – 11.30am then weekly to…
