MHA Communities – Warm Wednesdays in December

We started a new service at West Croydon Methodist Church to bring a new initiative in the heart of Croydon.

During this challenging time of the year, it is important to broaden up our support to older people and to offer a safe space for conversation. We also invite local organisations to join us. In fact, Croydon Community Energy will join our December sessions to advice older people on bills and the current challenges we are all facing.

In January, we will be joined by Croydon Healthy Homes partnership, an energy advice service to advise people on bills.

We have planned a great surprise for the December sessions with music and lots of food. Come and celebrate Christmas with us and connect with new and old friends.

Croydon Cats Protection – Christmas Bazaar & Jumble Sale

The need for fundraising for Croydon Cats Protection is greater than ever. As with many other pets in the current climate some people are abandoning their cats, many of which were sadly acquired during lockdown.

Cats Protection in England has over 250 branches and 36 centres country wide. Each branch is run by unpaid volunteers who devote themselves to the welfare of homeless cats and kittens needing our help. We also promote and can help financially with the neutering of cats and kittens (subject to eligibility).

We always have volunteer vacancies for Helpline Operators, Fosterers, Trapping Assistants and Fund-raising Event Helpers. Even if you can only spare a few hours a week we will be pleased to hear from you.

Please visit the Croydon Cats Protection website for more information on how to help.
