1,500 items donated to support Warm Spaces
Local community groups are once again rising to the challenge of supporting people in need who may be struggling to afford to heat their homes this winter. Village Halls, Churches and Libraries are just some of the groups opening their doors to anyone who wants to pop along.
We wanted to offer a bit of support to say thank you to all these groups stepping up to help others, so Lincolnshire Co-op has donated nearly 100 support boxes of tea, coffee, hot chocolate, milk & biscuits to enable the provision of a free cuppa.
St Giles Methodist Church, one of the groups who received a warm spaces pack said “This gesture will help us keep our warm spaces open for the people who really need it”.
We’re also encouraging all of the groups to register with Warm Welcome which has over 4,000 registered organisations that have opened up free, warm welcoming spaces for the public this winter. The website aims to make it easier for people to find their nearest warm space.
