And with that in mind, since Lockdown 1 , CMRA representatives have been in discussion with The Yard Theatre and East Village, to look at how we might be “good neighbours” at this time.
Funds were secured from East Village and L&Q, and food supplied via Newham Outreach, and using The Hall as a base, we have been able to assist 30 local families in need of a little “ grocery” help since June. ( Fresh bread is being supplied by Signorelli’s).
Space is tight and we must respect social distancing but operations are expanding. We are asking you to help if you can over the coming weeks and months by supplying other things that have been requested.
If you think you can help please contact us at https://theyardtheatre.co.uk/events/the-exchange/ and bring things to The Hall at the appropriate time and when requested. You can “ bubble up ’ and become a collection group in your block or street for particular items. (All the details are on the Yard site )
Financial donations will be accepted , again use The Yard contact details.
If you have some time to spare on Wednesdays to help with Deliveries , 12-2pm( Walking Distance), we’d be happy to hear from you
And if you could do with a little help yourself at this time just let Sadia or Arafat know and they will contact us.
Arafat and Sadia can be reached at ChobhamManor1@lqgroup.org.uk
