Recently members of the Oxspring Parish Council were given a talk relating to Cancer awareness and a number of posters were passed on at the time follow this link for for more information.
Oxspring community support organised by Jane Harding.
I have made links with the school and PTA, the council, Age UK and the Pop in Club as to how we can support Oxspring residents in need( for whatever reason)
Firstly I have been in touch with Mrs Irwin, the headmistress at Oxspring School. The school have a collection of non perishable food which they collected for their Harvest Festival but which has not yet been distributed. The food was offered to any families who needed it but the offer wasn’t taken up, so supplies remain.
I am happy to work with school to deliver the food parcels to those in need so please send me a personal message of the addresses in Oxspring to which they are most needed.
Secondly we have talked about how we can make Christmas special for any Oxspring residents who will be sad, lonely or facing a difficult time over the festive period. It is after all going to be very different for a lot of us this year.
Again working with school we are planning to give small Christmas hampers to anyone who fits the above criteria and lives in Oxspring - the children are going to write notes and these will be given to the recipients with each hamper.
I know lots of you volunteered to help last time I posted - please let me know if you’d be willing to make up a hamper ( £10 - £12). I costed one up from the local supermarket ( other supermarkets are available!!! ) with a small Xmas cake, individual Xmas pudding, shortbread, chocolates, non alcoholic drink and a tin of ham - however you can of course alter if you wish, it can be helpful to have a rough guide!
Any ideas and suggestions welcome – or if you know of a resident who may need to reach out privately -personal message me or call on either 07899937842 or 01226 767682
