Delivering In Our Community

We are now focusing our time and efforts on the needs of our immediate community. As a result  Teesdale Care Package Campaign was launched. The campaign was borne through a need to provide trade to local businesses and provide much needed groceries to those in our community who are in need.
The Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent social distancing measures have resulted in a significant number of local businesses reducing their delivery model or closing altogether. The knock on effect of this has been a decline in seasonal and tourist dependent employment in our community. We have also seen a number of families lose their income altogether due to loss of employment or a postponement in income until their respective Government schemes launch later in the Summer.
As a community organisation we have also felt the loss of custom and bookings however we are using our amazing resource to find solutions to the new needs of our community. One of these solutions is to provide Care Packages to those in need.

You can contribute to the project in a number of ways:

  • Donate to our GoFundMe campaign at https://www.gofundme.com/f/rachel039s-campaign-for-teesdale-community-resources. We will use your donations to purchase grocery items from the local high street to fill our Care Packages.
  • Donate items of food, cleaning products or toiletries to our donation box situated at the Hub front door, Monday to Friday between 9:30am and 5:00pm.
  • Donate funds direct to us by emailing us at info@tcrhub.co.uk.
  • Keep an eye out for opportunities to volunteer for the project as the need grows.

We have already donated hundreds of  Care Packages to people in Teesdale. We receive referrals from a number of partners such as the local Schools, Family Workers, YMCA, Housing Associations and local charities. We can also take a good neighbour referral or you can refer yourself. Criteria may need to be tightened dependent on the pressure on the Campaign but at present we just need to know that you are not able to purchase grocery items yourself. This might be due to significant loss of income, sudden increase in your own costs (for example business outgoings), inability to get out and about due to self isolation or shielding, no access to the internet to organise an online shop.

You can contact us on 07415167940. Please leave a voicemail message and we will return the call. You can email us at info@tcrhub.co.uk.
