October saw the planning of our 4 new centres, which are now all up and running across Bolsover and surrounding areas. We now have a total of 6 centres, 2 of which are Charity Shops while the others provide a café, support services and money advice – all of which are free.
Our 2 Charity Shops are placed in Clowne and New Houghton and offer a wide range of clothes, furniture, and bric-a-brac and are open between 10am-2pm. We can also refer to our additional services from these shops.
We currently have multiple Client Support Workers available at each of our centres (Bolsover, Clowne, New Houghton, Barlborough, Renishaw and Carr Vale) who offer support from completing forms to addiction and homelessness. All centres are now able to provide food for anyone who provides us with a food bank referral form and can collect payments for 2Shires Credit Union.
As always, we are looking for volunteers who are interested in helping out. If you would like any other information regarding volunteering please phone the office on 01246 241 457 or pop into one of our centres.
