Blackburn BID member and partner Change, Grow, Live are working on a couple of important projects this Christmas, and they’re after your help…
They are going to be doing outreach on Christmas Eve to their service users with children and those who are isolated.
They would like to give them and their families small gift items such as sweets, chocolate, socks, hats, gloves, small toys…. If you can and would like to donate any items to them for this, please contact Catherine Price, Blackburn BID Manager, asap.
Change, Grow, Live are also working with Blackburn with Darwen Council and partners to provide emergency housing provision in the form of self-contained ‘pods’ at Shadsworth. The pods are being provided for town centre rough sleepers with complex needs, so that they can be provided with lots of support.
They have had a fantastic donation of bedding courtesy of Taylors Solicitors and Pinmill, but they are also in need of 5 x bath towels and 10 x hand towels (preferably in dark colours). If you can help with these items please contact Catherine.
Finally Blackburn BID member Nightsafe have accommodation for vulnerable young people at Silas in Blackburn. They want to put large baubles/glitter balls in the trees outside Silas for the young people and are looking for donations if possible.
If you have any spare large Christmas decorations for the trees, or would like to donate any to Nightsafe, please let Catherine know.
