Hope Trust started to offer limited activities from 4th August 2020, all of which are designed to keep people safe and healthy whilst attending.
We know that having our own small community building means we can control all aspects of its use, including cleaning, numbers in/out and enjoying sole use of its lovely facilities. Whilst the word that will forever define this extraordinary time will be ‘cleaning’ - at least we know that it is safe to use. If you haven’t yet ventured out to join us, please be assured that we take your safety, as well as that of our volunteers, VERY seriously indeed. Your experience will start with us taking your temperature, asking you to complete our Track & Trace Contact info; once you are seated you can take your mask off as it’s hard to drink coffee with it on! Our one way in, one way out system means a trip to the loo will include a few more steps than usual, but we’re all adults and know you can cope with that! Oh and of course, washing your hands or using hand sanitiser, how could we forget that important step! So, our Tuesday Technology Café, Tea & Chat session on a Wednesday are both currently hosted at Maidstone Hall between 10-12 noon. We are also able to offer Tea & Chat on a Thursday morning in the Margaret White hall of the Old Felixstowe Community Association building, also between 10-12 noon. Please ring to book yourself in as spaces are available.
We have also taken the decision to prioritise the Spring/Autumn Bereavement Support Group Bereavement is tough enough at any time, but there is no doubt that loss during the pandemic has added layers of complexity to the process. Please don’t struggle alone, we are here to help, just give us a call to find out more.
So, there you have it, we are back up and running and looking forward to catching up with as many of you as possible. However, if venturing out is still too big a hurdle to overcome don’t forget we are also here to give you a cheery phone call, send a letter or write a short card; in other words you do not need to do this alone, Hope Trust remains committed to being here to help.
The Hope Trust is a charity whose aim is 'helping older people.' We work with people aged 50+ and our particular focus is on the relief of loneliness.
