Tang Hall Community Centre is gearing up to operate a food delivery service to support the most vulnerable in our community to access food and other supplies.
Our ideal is for people:
Who know the centre and have worked / volunteered / are regular attendees at the centre.
People who have experience in distribution.
Somebody who lives close to the centre who can become a key holder and will help to open / lock up the centre regularly.
We need volunteers for two main tasks:
To help with logistics at the centre.
To collect and deliver food (either by vehicle, bike or on foot). To be eligible you MUST:
Not be displaying symptoms of Coronavirus i.e. high temperature and continuous cough.
Not be aged 70 years or older (regardless of medical condition). Not have an underlying health condition (i.e. anyone instructed to get a flu jab as an adult each year on medical grounds).
Not be pregnant.
If you can help us please send us an email to volunteer@THCCentre.co.uk containing the following information:
How you know the centre / how you can help
Please bear with me if I do not respond straight away.
By responding to this email you are giving us your permission to hold these details over the duration of the emergency. Please see https://thccentre.co.uk/privacy-policy/ for further details....
It is an honour to be in Tang Hall with our community. Next week we are committed to remain open and have daily events all based around take away food and support. We are also to introduce enhanced social distancing measures. Shouting it this time: #tanghallandproud...
We are still open and here as a community hub if you need us. We have put some extra procedures in place and we will update you if anything changes.
Currently the following groups have stopped running for the forseable future:
Tuesday Walking for health group
Tuesday Zumba (currently closed until 7th April due to holiday)
Wednesday Youth Club
Thursday Circuit training
Friday Messy play
If the doors to our centre were to close, no one benefits. This is where you can help us.
If you've already donated, THANK YOU! We are so very grateful for the generosity of the public as we head into the last two weeks of our campaign.
BUT, we're only 4% funded, so we need more people shouting out on our behalf, sharing the link to donate, championing the work we do in the community.
We can't do this without you.

Come join the family. This is 1.5 hours per week so it would suit someone local. Very important and rewarding work in an amazing community with an amazing Youth Work team. Help spread the #TangHallAndProud word...
Think X-Men Assemble but with a farmer, a butcher, a chef and 2 sheep (also wearing aprons not capes). We have a special event at the centre tomorrow night. The second of practical butchery demonstrations with the opportunity to buy high welfare meat....
