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.
