The Hale Community Centre has done amazing work for several years and has set up some much needed and much appreciated new services during the pandemic.
Can you help us to do more?
- Enhanced the Hale Community Fridge & Cupboard – taking surplus stock from local supermarkets and making the food available to Community, helping those in need and minimising food waste.
- Partnered with the Farnham Hygiene Bank - we have a stock of essential hygiene and toiletry products in our Community Cupboard available for anyone who is struggling to afford these.
- Continue developing our Community Garden to provide a wonderful refuge for the whole community.
What Hale Community Centre would like to do this year:
- Complete the renovation of the disused Nursery building behind the Community Centre for use as an open access youth facility for 10–19-year-olds run by the Community Centre.
- Continue setting up Talk and Support – a group facilitated by trained counsellors to offer somewhere to come and talk, feel supported and offer support to other group members for those feeling a bit daunted by coming out of lockdown and venturing back out into a much busier society.
- Re-establish the Code Club for 11 – 15-year-olds to find out about coding, build skills and confidence and give them more opportunities.
- Continue to arrange and facilitate family activities for school holidays.
What can you do to get more involved:
- Become a Friend of Hale Community Centre and keep up to date on what is taking place.
- Support the activities at Hale Community Centre as a volunteer?
- Are you already involved in an organisation that could offer free sessions?
