Community Chest February Winner
15th March 2017
February Community Chest fund has supported The Hope Project.
The Hope Project, part of charity The
Hope Trust, provides family support, training, clubs and self help initiatives
to the residents of the Hemmingwell Estate, Wellingborough. It also brings the
community together by facilitating fun events for families.
Andrew Upton, Administrator and Trustee
of The Hope Trust, said “Thank you so much for the nomination and the gift you
have given to us. This will be used in two ways, half will go to the preschool
for any children who need help and the other half will do to the HUB upcycling
centre that the project runs.
The HUB provides furniture and other
household items to anyone who is moving into a property and have nothing and no
means to get what they need, both on the Hemmingwell and in other parts of
town, in conjunction with Wellingborough Homes.”
