Help at hand: Salvation Army

“Hopefully, this period of time will be one that strengthens local networks so that when we come out the other side, we’ll be better prepared for the new way of life that lies ahead.  It’s going to be really painful, but there are huge opportunities for growth.”

The Sidmouth Salvation Army is one of several local organisations offering help to the community in these difficult times:

.

They’ve been distributing wonderful packs to children this week: – because not everyone has a garden:

It’s so good to have received generous donations from the community over the past week or two, and also a grant today from Devon County Council’s support fund.

This means we’ll be able to give 25 local families a helping hand with art and craft supplies this week.

It’s a tricky time to be indoors with little ones if you have a garden and plenty of paper and paints – but doubly tough if you don’t.

In these difficult times, perhaps there is hope, as said by Angie Carney, their Community Development Manager:

Hopefully, this period of time will be one that strengthens local networks so that when we come out the other side we’ll be better prepared for the new way of life that lies ahead.  It’s going to be really painful, but there are huge opportunities for growth I think.
