Celebrating the things we value most

Nothing prepared us for the changes to our social lives and livelihoods during 2020.

For many of us this festive season will bring renewed emphasis on celebrating the things we value most in life - family, friends, good food and our future wellbeing. But it will also be an especially difficult time for people experiencing social isolation and loneliness, food poverty or anxiety about the year ahead because of redundancy or financial hardship.  


Providing support throughout the year

During lockdown our community rallied together to show it cared about people across the borough affected by the Covid-19 outbreak. 

In the year ahead, with continued backing from the local community, we’ll carry on providing our life-changing services like the Community Fridge project we helped to set up. It aims to reduce food poverty and food waste by supplementing the weekly shop of individuals and families experiencing financial hardship with surplus and donated food we collect and store in Guild House.  

"I can't tell you how great the team at Wimbledon Guild have been. They've kept in touch regularly. Fortunately for me I have family close by but they even offered to send a volunteer to help with shopping and picking up my prescriptions.

I can think of many of my friends at Wimbledon Guild who would like this. Thank you for continuing to be there for our local community."
