Two community centres in Wellingborough have teamed up to offer a helping hand to vulnerable people and families across Wellingborough during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Victoria Centre and Glamis Hall have come together to form the One Wellingborough project, to provide a range of essential community services across the town in these challenging times. Working alongside other local partners, One Wellingborough will help people and groups, and offer more co-ordination and support across the whole community.
One Wellingborough, funded by the Borough Council of Wellingborough, offers services such as delivering hot or frozen meals, doing shopping for people, picking up medicine or just ringing people for a chat. It also aims to deliver food parcels and other support whilst following social distancing rules. The services are free, but donations are welcome and will go towards helping many more people get the food, meals or support they need.
Anyone seeking help or wanting to volunteer can contact One Wellingborough by calling 01933 677623 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
