In 2018, the Centre was awarded financial support from The National Lottery’s Community Fund which will help to sustain and develop our wonderful community centre for the next five years. With this, we began a partnership with The Women’s Organisation in Liverpool, who we commissioned to evaluate the impact of our project. This work led to a new and exciting opportunity this year. Maggie O’Carroll, Chief Executive, met with us in September 2019 to discuss our visions for building regeneration.
In May 2020, we were awarded £5,000 to deliver a 6-week project to assist in these relief efforts for the people of Carr Mill, Clinkham Wood and Moss Bank. 95% of this money was spent on six in-bulk food orders from Aldi Stores in Newton-le-Willows. The rest covered our volunteers’ travel costs, cardboard boxes, bags and printing.
We would like to thank all of the new volunteers who have supported us over the past six weeks. 12 local people responded to our call for help and freely gave their time, energy and community spirit to help alleviate the impact of the virus.
As a recipient, many of you have provided some lovely feedback which has certainly inspired and warmed their hearts.
The staff and volunteers at the Centre are pleased to announce that we have started a brand-new networking opportunity to improve the lives of people living in Carr Mill, Clinkham Wood and Moss Bank. .
What changed for the residents of Carr Mill, Clinkham Wood & Moss Bank?
Towards the end of 2020, following the coronavirus pandemic, we put a call out to our community to tell us how their lives had changed and been impacted by such an unforeseen challenge to our wider health and wellbeing, as individuals and as a society.
