Gorebridge Community Cares

Gorebridge Cares knows that families have been struggling through this Covid Pandemic and would like to help.  Through a small but time limited grant which ends soon, we are able to provide some assistance with food vouchers, help with fuel payments and can provide toiletries, cleaning & sanitary products, nappies and toilet roll etc to families who feel this would help them.  We think that this would be most helpful to families on low incomes but appreciate Covid has affected us all’.
Please either private message Gorebridge Community Cares Facebook Page, email info@gorebridgecares.org or text/call : Claire on 07734 762540 or Caron on 07734 762403
