Volunteers from the western section of the Tideway project have been helping Sands End community hub to safely re-open.
They’ve been able to donate time and resources to help The Sands End Associated Projects In Action (SEAPIA) deliver planned support for families of the Sands End Estate in Fulham.
The SEAPIA provides low-cost play and childcare provisions for the community, a hub where children can engage in various activities in a stimulating positive environment. Elderly and isolated residents also use the hub to meet and share experiences, socialising with each other and the younger generation.
The team based at Carnwath Road Riverside site volunteered to help them get ready to re-open by clearing the gardens, undertaking painting works and installing a much need outside water fountain, adhering to the Covid-19 guidance and social distancing at all times.
Like many small charities across the UK, the pandemic impacted on the SEAPIA greatly.
Tideway has donated £5,000 help pay staff salaries to deliver planned support for Sands End Estate families. This donation will help pay for staff time to continue the fantastic work they provide to the most vulnerable of children and their families.
SEAPIA Manager Julie Cavanagh said: “The support from Tideway, as always, is invaluable. The teams did a fantastic job and the donation will enable us to keep supporting disadvantaged families in the local area – thank you so much”.
