We are pleased to publish our latest impact report for the charity for May 2022. We like to keep the General Public informed of our activity so they can see how their donations and time assist us in our charitable aims and objectives.
The CARE Project
The CARE Project saw a significant rise in service users being referred to us from April to May along with a rise in the amount of people we fed! Bag a Bargain continuted to see increased usage. Due to the on going cost of living rises, we are finding more and more people are using Bag a Bargain to help cut down on their food shop bills. This not only helps individuals by saving money but it helps The CARE Project cut down on food waste.

- People fed – 449 (+27%)
- Referrals Received – 16

Our work could not happen without the dedicated crowd of volunteers that make up The Parish Trust Volunteering Family. Like everything else, our volunteer base is also growing. We are welcoming new volunteers each month but we are always in need of more volunteers. Perhaps you’re someone who could join the team? This page has everything you need to know…

We returned in May after the Easter period to a rise in demand! Our staff and volunteers have put their all into helping those in need.
Sadly The Parish Trust said goodbye to Aimee Rees, our Community Worker. It is never easy saying goodbye to somebody, especially when Aimee gave so much to The Parish Trust. We wish Aimee all the best and success in the future, whatever it may hold.
We welcomed FIVE new members of staff. After Aimee’s depature, we appointed Carly Evans as our new Community Worker. Carly will work alongside Ellis, our other Community Worker.
We also welcomed, Beth Morgan – The Parish Trust Cleaner, Carrie Gealy – Youth Engagement Office, Luke Coleman – Wellbeing Officer and Charlotte Carey who will be working alongside Saffron as the administrator. Charlotte is covering Jenna’s maternity leave for the next 12 months with hope that there will be a permanent role at the end of it.
We are excited to see what our new members of staff have to bring to us as a charity and the community around us!
