It’s one of our favourite days TODAY… International Volunteers Day!
We would like to say THANK YOU to all of the people who give up their time to volunteer to help their fellow #HU6 residents. We couldn’t do it without you.
Plus, we have just been awarded £500 from #RankFoundation and #EsméeFairbairnFoundation for a Hull Activity Grant.
This grant will go towards helping our weekly food pantry scheme, which is a volunteer led initiative providing affordable food to the local community. The money is for volunteer expenses throughout the year and running some ‘cook and taste’ sessions.
We are going to provide basic cooking demonstrations using produce available at the food pantry with an emphasis on healthy eating.
These sessions will also help provide awareness of the other activities available at Unity to get participants involved in volunteering in their local community, employment support and courses.
