18th February - Connecting Crossgates
Gathering people together for good in the community of Crossgates and East Leeds. Over the past year some of our activities have stopped, others have continued and a big new one has begun!
In November 2017 we launched a Pop Up Hub in the Crossgates Shopping Centre. Friendly volunteers help visitors to find events, groups or activities and signpost to appropriate advice or support. It’s a safe place to meet people and drop in for a chat. We are helping over 100 people a month.
Susan arrived at the hub in tears. ‘I knew where to come because I have seen you here when I’ve walked past,’ she told the volunteers.
Please pray for the project: As we cannot leave the Hub unattended, we need a better storage solution for our equipment inbetween sessions or more volunteers to keep it open all week. We would love permission to use an empty unit in the centre. We also need more regular giving to sustain and expand our projects… current funding runs out in March!
