Our Knit & Natter group are able to keep in touch via WhatsApp and/or telephone. We're able to deliver items to them on a regular basis. They've been kept really busy trying new skills and knitting loads thanks to funding from Cwm Taff Morgannwg Regional Partnership Board's Integrated Care Fund, Tesco/Groundwork, RCT Covid Community Activity Fund and Interlink.The group has also benefitted from a Magic Little Grant from Local Giving and Interlink to provide low impact exercise equipment to keep them active during lockdown.
We are providing a befriending service to people who might feel lonely and isolated due to the pandemic. This is being funded by Age Cymru. Please ring 07775792543 to find out more information.
People aged 60+ who are living alone can have a free Wellbeing pack delivered to their door. If you know anyone living in the local area who would benefit please ring or text 07775792543 with their name, age and address. This is being funded by The National Lottery Community Fund, Clock Fish Bar and Serenity Support Services.
Our Children's After School Art Groups have combined into a new group called Zoom Art. We are grateful to artist Becky Adams for hosting the Zoom sessions and keeping the children enthralled. This is supported by The National Lottery Community Fund.
We've been able to give away 300 children's art packs and 200 Christmas art packs. Artist Becky Adams has posted video clips on Facebook of things to do and make.
We are also working in partnership with St Winifred's Church to provide food parcels to families in Penrhiwceiber and surrounding areas. Referrals come via Headteachers of local schools. If you know a family who needs support please ask them to contact their Headteacher. This activity is supported by The National Lottery Community Fund, Community Foundation Wales, a charitable foundation in Wales, who wishes to remain anonymous, Interlink and RCT's Food Support Fund.
We are very grateful to all our funders for enabling us to carry on with our work throughout the pandemic. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
