NHS Volunteer Responders

If people want to volunteer there is now an NHS registration online for you to do so. The beauty of it is that you can choose what to do. For example if you are social isolating you can just sign up for phoning people to check they are ok.

Wellingborough & District Foodbank News

In light of the Government message of 23 March 2020 we have had to change the way that the Foodbank operates.
Referrals to the Foodbank
We are now operating a delivery only service.  Referrals received will be delivered the next working day between 2 and 4 pm.  The delivery team will call when outside, leave the goods on the doorstep and then retreat.
There will be a limit of one parcel  week per household.  (Another referral will not be accepted until after 7 days have elapsed.)  Clients with a voucher please post in the letter box.
Donations to the Foodbank
Donations can be made Monday to Friday between 10 am and 12.30 pm.  Please follow the procedure below.

  • On arrival please leave the goods outside the Foodbank door at the rear of the building
  • Please ring the doorbell or call 01933 446490 to let us know
  • Please vacate the car park as soon as possible
  • When you have departed we will bring the goods inside

All donations should be in date and in unopened packaging using the procedures as detailed above, directly to the Foodbank at the rear of Queens Hall, 8 High Street, Wellingborough NN8 4JU.
Alternatively donation bins can be found around the town, in places such as Tesco, Victoria Park and Sainsburys, Northampton Road.
If you would like to help but cannot make it to the shops, you can make an online financial donation at http://localgiving.org/charity/daylight/project/wellingboroughfoodbank
This enables us to buy in the items that are in short supply.
When we have updates we will continue to keep everyone informed.  Keep safe and well.  Thank you so much for your support.

Videos from Youth for Christ for children, young people and families

The first of these videos for children and young people is live now! There will be three versions, specifically designed for 7-11s, one for 11-18s and, in the next week, one for families.

Over the coming weeks, we will release three videos a week for each of these groups to help you stay in continuous communication and togetherness.

All the content produced for you in this time of uncertainty is completely free.

We’ve made this process as easy as possible.  Go to yfc.co.uk/youthworkonline and sign up to the mailing list. We will send new videos directly to people on this mailing list once a week as soon as they are released.
