Easter eggs and Groceries please!
Following the successful appeal for groceries for the food bank at Oasis, I am again asking if we can dig deep and continue to support some of our less fortunate neighbours in Gorton.
The Oasis Centre has been closed since March 2020, but a recent communication from Victoria and her team says that in the first 3 months of 2020 Oasis had already served over 2,500 hot breakfasts and lunches, addressed 976 crisis issues and engaged 280 people in education, work club and volunteering programmes. Since then staff have been furloughed and have worked on a part time basis, open for emergency crisis support by appointment, providing education and activity packs and, most important of all, providing food parcels from its food bank.
Any donations left on my doorstep (14 Congleton Road, Alderley Edge) will be taken to the new centre the week before Easter to add to their supplies. Easter eggs – as a “luxury” item – would be especially welcome to lift spirits.
Thank you very much in advance for your kindness.
