During this unprecedented time we really wanted to update everyone with what we have been doing at Neo and to pass our best on to all of our supporters and partners.
Following national guidance we had to close our Community House, Social Supermarkets and Bistro to ensure the public and our teams safety. This does not mean that Neo has closed.
Another busy build up to Christmas with this years’ hamper campaign.
2019 has been a tough year for many, and whilst demand for support has been up, it’s been a challenge to get the vital donations we need to supply contents for our hampers. Nevertheless, with the support and donations from individuals and local business we again delivered hundreds of hampers this year.
I have been on the road trying to understand how engaging with the local community brings real benefits to the lives of those living in deprived areas.
I recently visited Neo Community Cafe in Rock Ferry. Here, I met countless people who described the various activities of the café as a lifeline: volunteers and customers alike.
