A storm is coming… Please see attached message from Terry Spicer, Saint Mary’s Catholic Action Group

Families in Loughborough who are currently struggling financially may soon be hit by further financial problems. Feeding children during the summer holidays will be an added expense as schools are closed. As the furlough scheme starts to unwind, more and more people will find that they have no job to return to and the number of those in need will rise. The rules for the Universal Credit Scheme are starting to tighten once more. As lockdown rules are relaxed other forms of government support will also diminish.

The Bridge, a charity based in Loughborough, is working hard to support those in need. At the moment they are supporting the provision of more than 600 food parcels each week. This number will grow. They also provide a range of other support services.

The Bridge needs our help. Times are hard for many. Are you able to donate a little to help those in need in Loughborough? You can donate via The Bridge website or send a letter entitled “Food Poverty” with a cheque made payable to “The Bridge (East Midlands)” to The Bridge, 38 Leicester Road, Loughborough, Leicestershire, LE11 2AG. Alternatively using the following information, you can make a one off BACS payment. Name = The Bridge (East Midlands) Sort Code = 40-52-40. Account Number = 00084149 Reference = Food Poverty.

Thank you.
