With the National Lottery's help, we did.

More than 6,000 hot meals, food parcels and medicines delivered to those in need within the Tang Hall and wider communities over the summer.

Thank you to everyone who made it happen, including those who play the Lotto.

As you'll probably be aware, fundraising is a crucial part of the work we do at the centre. THCC is a charitable organisation, and it's the generosity of our donors, the income from our tenants/hirers, and the funding we're awarded that enables us to open our doors and support our community.

Covid-19, inevitably, has had a financial impact, and whilst we're in a better position than some charities/good causes, it has put a spoke in the works, so to speak, concerning the plans we'd made and the future we envisaged.

We currently have two projects in the offing that we're seeking funding for. One is via the Co-op Community Fund; Co-op members can direct donations to our cause without it costing them a penny, via the members' app or online via this URL: https://membership.coop.co.uk/causes/44029

The take-up and clear need for our 'Isolation Grub Club' form the basis of our second fundraising campaign. We'd love to attract sponsors and/or local businesses who would be happy to support the work we desperately need to complete. More details via this URL: https://app.thegoodexchange.com//project/18418/tang-hall-community-centre/halfway-to-full-bellies

We would really welcome your help. If you're able to donate in any way, that would be fantastic. If not, please help us get the word out far and wide.

Thank you.

12-2pm today is our first Tang Hall Food hub. You can pick up some shopping and we are using our veg and simple store cupboard ingredients to make a pasta pot lunch to take away. #TangHallAndProud ...

Today we say happy birthday to the one and only @noggin_jim, the chef from our resident @food_circle_york . This man worked tirelessly to feed our community for five and a half months during Covid. Happy Birthday Jim. Our community owes you a lot. ...

It's not just the cat...everyone at Tang Hall Community Centre has missed seeing you.

The last few months have certainly been a challenge. Though we couldn't open under our usual guise, we became a Local Authority Hub following lockdown.

Our team and wonderful volunteers have spent the last few months delivering food parcels, basic essentials, medicine and hot meals to those in need in our community.

The good news is, we're reopening to the general public on September 7th 2020. We may not yet have the same jam-packed schedule of events, classes and cafes, but we do have plenty of reasons to once again come through our doors.

Visit our website to see what's happening as soon as our doors open on the 7th, and also what you can look forward to once social distancing rules are relaxed a little more.

We came in this morning to find this fella looking after some of the food donations. ...

As our volunteers prepare to send out meal number 4,000.

Let us take a moment to thank Jim and Steve who lead on cooking the meals.

They are the ones who get up at 5:30am twice a week to make it happen

The operation is run and delivered by volunteers.

Four FREE meals per week for isolated, vulnerable people living in Heworth and Hull Road close to the centre.

We have a dozen spaces available at the moment. If you qualify under the above criteria and want to join Isolation Grub Club. Call us on 01904 431 492 or email Hub@THCCentre.co.uk

Lovely big buzzard soaring over the centre at the moment ...

Can anyone identify this beast 🙀 It must have been the size of a small dog (ish) #MightBeExagerating ...
