The Challenge Team Sunday 10th July 2016
A great day with the challenge team at Love Coventry
This was their last day with Love Coventry their challenge was to create something useful that would benefit a section of the local community. They got hold of six used tyres and painted the old tyres in bright colours, they will now be used to create flower planters on the hard play area at Hope Nursery/Hope Centre Hillfields.
Well the nursery will be so surprised when they see them tomorrow.
Thank you for all your help and hard work it was pleasure meeting you all.
Volunteer a day
What would I be doing? Across the city there are many ways you can help different organisations by giving your time. Once we have your details (Click on the donate time button and fill in the on-line form) we can find something you could help with and enjoy doing. Below are some examples of what we do on a day to day basis
Collecting food on collection day’s around the supermarkets in Coventry. Helping with the distribution of the food. Helping in the warehouse helping with re-cycling the donated goods. If you have any particular skills we could use here are some examples- driving, administration, IT, counselling.
Most importantly a willing pair of hands and a smiling face is all you need and is always very welcome.
Recycle your clothes & goods
What type of goods: almost anything you consider could be re-sold or re-cycled
We will gladly collect items if you cannot deliver them but with respect we are not a waste disposal collection service.
It’s very important to us the recipients of the good’s you donate are treated with dignity and generosity of spirit and we achieve this by ensuring the items are in good working order, fairly clean, and fit for purpose.
There is always a great demand for things like BEDS – BEDROOM FURNITURE – SOFA’S – SOFA BED’S – CHAIRS – DINING and KITCHEN TABLES – ELECTRICAL APPLIANCES (we ask that electrical items including washing machines tumble dryers, cookers, microwave ovens, fridge and fridge freezers or freezers are relatively clean and in working order),
MOBILE PHONES( how many do you have lying about your house?),
GAME CONSULS, PC’S, CLOTHES, all ages, shoes, all ages,
HOUSE HOLD GOODS, kettles; cooking utensils; crockery etc
Donate from your Pay Packet
Money is the one thing we can’t do without. Even with the best people with the best intentions it always comes down to money.
Money raised will be distributed back into the communities helping to support community and charitable groups working in Coventry, groups that are focusing on what we feel are the three main areas of need in any city providing support financially and practically to groups that work specifically with – Children and Young People – People with Learning or physical Disabilities – The Elderly.
SOMEbody can’t do EVERYthing but EVERYone can do SOMEthing
That something can be as simple as donating £1.00 every month. A small amount each month from each of us in Coventry will make a huge difference in our city.
You can give more if you want but we would rather it was an amount you felt you would not miss and be able to continue to give
