The Umbrella Centre
The Umbrella Centre has taken the difficult decision to close its doors. The Umbrella Café and Hive will still be open and wonderfully someone has donated a far larger Community Fridge which will now be filled twice a week by FareShare. The café hope to continue to offer Pay It Forward for its regular clients, including the homeless. If you can encourage people to donate to its operating costs please do so athttps://theumbrellacafe.co.uk/donate/
Food Friends at the Centre is also looking for additional volunteers. If you know anyone who is able to cook an extra portion of food once a week and deliver it to the home of someone isolated, elderly or vulnerable please contact Anna at firstname.lastname@example.org
5,000 postcards are going to be distributed to shops and community centres around town from tomorrow morning (see the photo). We want to encourage people to pick up a postcard and pop it through the door of anyone they fear might be in need, isolated or hungry.
Red Zebra will be launching their new volunteer forms tomorrow morning. From Monday they will be deploying staff and volunteers in their office on a shift pattern designed to prevent the service being closed if one or more staff members falls ill. Registered volunteers will start proactively calling members of the community to offer support early next week.
More details will be out tomorrow

Whitstable Community Wardrobe
We are pleased to be a collection point again for the Whitstable Community Wardrobe. This has been set up by the local churches to recycle unwanted school uniforms and help lessen the financial burden on local families. All donations will be washed, ironed and available for families to collect anonymously at distribution points during the summer holidays.
If you have unwanted uniform you would like to donate, our community wardrobe bin can be found in reception. Please speak to Mrs Massey if you would like further information.
SNAAP is unique: there are no other local organisations which provide the extensive range of services to children with every kind of disability, aged from 0-25 years, in partnership with parents. The focus of the services is upon all of the child's needs including educational, social, developmental and emotional. We focus upon the whole family and not just on the child with disabilities.
