The Harrogate District Foodbank is always looking for donations of food and other items.  Visit the website to find out how to help.

We’re delighted to announce that we have been awarded a £37,500 Lottery grant to make changes to the building that are required as a result of the impact of COVID-19 on our finances. 

With room bookings in the Lower Hall non-existent, we knew that some fairly drastic action was required. The Trustees therefore decided to accept a proposal from the Harrogate Homeless Project to take over the whole of our ground floor for their day service operation, Springboard. Although they currently operate from our building next door, they are not able to socially-distance in it as the rooms are too small so the number of clients they see has been seriously curtailed.

 

When the Homeless Project moves in, we anticipate that our normal activities and hopefully some new ones can continue upstairs in the Chapel. The Lottery money will primarily be used to install toilets there and also upgrade the kitchen downstairs which will be being used a lot more. We now have until March 31st 2021 to spend all the money, so planning is underway.

 

Another exciting development is a partnership with MHA who approached us with the idea of using Wesley Centre as a base for their activities in the Harrogate community. They are impressed with what we already provide but their weight behind us will help us to expand our outreach even further and will also hopefully attract a number of new volunteers.  Please keep these new ventures in your prayers.
