The Beacon Helps To Restore Hope

21 April 2020

The Beacon’s Dining Hall has transformed into a storage and distribution centre for The Storehouse Project – a Community Volunteer Programme in partnership with local churches, Chiltern Foodbank, Restore Hope, and many other volunteers from across the region, to provide boxes of hope to local children and families affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The project are currently delivering three main boxes:

  • A Box of Hope – full of craft activities and toys for children while school sites are closed
  • An Easter Blessing Box – with Easter eggs and Easter-themed magazines
  • Emergency Foodbank boxes for singles, couples and families in need of food at this difficult time

The Beacon is honoured to be part of this important community project. To watch a wonderful video of local families receiving their boxes, please click here.
