The support received through GlobalGiving throughout the pandemic and post pandemic has been truly amazing and a very big thank you goes out to all our donors from both the staff and members of the Day Centre and the Rotary Club of Halstead. Without this support the Halstead Day Centre would have struggled to survive over the last two years.
Like everyone the Centre is experiencing rising costs and therefore will be grateful for all the support received in the future. Despite these difficulties The Centre is now slowly getting back to be fully operational but there is still a long way to go.
The Day Centre is now operational three days a week, this is thanks to the support received from our donors through GlobalGiving. Without this support that has been received throughout the covid19 pandemic, it is highly likely that the Halstead Day Centre would not have survived. A very big thank you to all our donors and to GlobalGiving for making this possible.
The number of clients of the Day Centre is growing and it is hoped that it will soon be able to be fully operational and providing the excellent service to the community that it has done in the past.
The continued support from all our donors has provided much needed lifeline since the launch of this GlobalGiving initiative. Both the members of the Rotary Club of Halstead and the staff of the Halstead Day Centre wish to thank everyone that has continued to contribute to this project.
Though the task of recovering from the effects of the pandemic is far from complete the Centre staff are pleased that the work of the Centre is gradually returning to its normal operating times and the number of members using the facility on a regular basis is getting back to the pre-covid level.
The Rotary Club of Halstead and the Halstead Day Centre are extremely grateful to all donors who have supported this project during these difficult times. Your support has enabled the Halstead Day Centre to survive under the Covid 19 restrictions that exist at present.
The Halstead Day Centre was closed for a number of months during the height of the pandemic and is now restricted to six members, this has meant that the income has been severely reduced and the centre has relied on its reserves and donations from various sources including those from GlobalGiving to weather this crisis.
Your continued support gives the centre a lifeline during these difficult times.
The first payment of disbursement has been forwarded to the Halstead Day Centre, for which the centre’s staff and the Rotary Club of Halstead are extremely grateful to all our donors.
It is with great sadness that due to lockdown rules the Halstead Day Centre has not been able to provide its normal support to the elderly of Halstead. Also during this period more and more elderly residents of Halstead are seeking the services of the centre to provide relief from the loneliness and isolation that Covid 19 is causing. Let’s hope that the lockdown rules will allow the centre to resume its essential work soon.
At present the centre has managed to keep its entire staff on the pay roll through this lockdown, this is essential in order that once things start to return to some normality the centre can respond immediately and start to offer a service once again.
The management staff at the centre are controlling the expenditure on a day to day basis but without the regular income from members the financial situation is difficult. The donations received through GlobalGiving have provided a lifeline that has enabled the centre to be ready to open its doors once again, but any further support would be greatly received. A regular donation of just a few pound a month would make all the difference. So please visit https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/shield-the-elderly-from-loneliness/ and help us to be ready to respond once this pandemic is receding.
