Smiling Susan Cooking 60 Christmas Dinners

The Bus Stop Club broke its record this Christmas by cooking and delivering a total of 60 Christmas dinners to individuals and families we support! This was in place of having a sit down meal together at the Centre with clients and volunteers from our various projects including After School Craft, CAP Debt Centre, MOAT Courses (1:2:1 Management of Anxiety and Trauma Recovery), Food Store Cupboard and many others who receive our support.

Each dinner was delivered to the door by one of our super volunteers with a smile and a large goody bag full of generously donated groceries and treats. We say a big thank you again to all involved from those donating and collecting food supplies to assembling meals and goody bags to driving and delivering them. Thank you! Clients have said what a difference this made at this time, with some texting or sending us a Christmas card saying thank you!

Lockdown Craft Packs

Our Wednesday After School Club had to think outside the box…  well… er… into a bag in fact! Although we have been unable to meet during Covid-19, it has not stopped us personally delivering our weekly Craft Sessions to the door. That’s twelve doors to be exact with a total of twenty children. Each week our families receive their variety of fun craft activities in colourful bags. Some weeks we include a few yummy treats! Below is some lovely feedback from one of our families.

“Thank you for my son’s craft pack every week! Not only does my son enjoy them, I enjoy the one to one time I spend helping him. I was worried in the current situation about having things to do after school so these deliveries are just perfect.”
