The Welwyn Hatfield community should feel very proud of themselves this year. We have seen more groups forming to accept donations of food, clothes and toys for those needing a helping hand. This reflects that care for one another is still strong and at the core of the residents beliefs.
With the cost of living still a significant challenge for many and the increase in the energy bill looming for January, having these extra avenues where an individual or family can seek assistance is a bonus, especially at this time of the year it shows the communities compassion and generosity.
With their incredible donation of chocolates and toys we were able to deliver to the Welwyn Hatfield Women Refuge, Welwyn Hatfield Ukrainian Visitors Group, Resolve Online, Hatfield Food Bank and individuals whom we have been supporting throughout the year.
Holy Family Catholic Church Kindly gave £360 worth of gift vouchers which will be distributed to families and individuals in need.
Volunteers Mince Pies and Coffee Morning
No appearance of Santa but the reindeers kept the mood alive with little effort needed because everyone was in the festive spirt. The Volunteer Mince Pie and Coffee morning is our annual seasonal event where volunteers come together, meet one another and share good practice.
Small Acts of Kindness
The Small Acts of Kindness wellness bags contain some vital essentials such as blankets, soups, gloves and festive treats which our clients look forward to receiving. They provide practical support but they also add a touch of warmth and holiday cheer.
The Community Car Scheme drivers are already delivering these care packages before the temperature drops again to ensure that those in need receive assistance and comfort during the festive season.
Thank you Small Acts of Kindness for getting these ready for us; wishing you and your team a joyful and heartwarming holiday season as you continue to spread kindness and support.
Pets In Need Herts
Pets in Need Herts continues to have a positive impact on the community by assisting pet owners in need.
Financial challenges can be a significant barrier for individuals and families in caring for their pets especially when circumstances can change at the drop of a hat, like the loss of employment or adopting a loved ones pet who has recently passed. By offering assistance with food and essential living items, Pets in Need Herts not only helps to prevent pets from going to rescues but also the emotional distress that both pet and their owners may experience from this process.
