Community Helping Hand is one way we can connect with our local Community by offering Help, using our Hands and Hearts.
What we offer is not fancy gourmet food, but basic things: baked beans, rice, noodles, milk, tea bags, toothpaste, etc.
COMMUNITY HELPING HAND HOURS ARE
THURSDAY 9am - 12 noon only.
This is an emergency service only.
Due to the current Coronavirus, COVID-19 pandemic Community Helping Hand has had to reduce it's service hours and had to put other guidelines in place to try and keep everyone safe. We ask that if you are unwell that you do not come for a face to face consultation and call and we will try to deliver to you if we can. (this is will depend on volunteer capacity)
Emmanuel Playgroup offers a safe place for children 0-5 to play and develop social skills with their peers and other children and adults. It is a great place to make new friends, learn new things, and become part of a community. We welcome all young children and their carers including stay-at-home, work-from-home, and work outside the home; mums, dads, grandparents, and nannies.
We meet each Friday during school terms at 9:30 - 11:30am. Each week we have a different theme and activities to engage children. A large range of toys helps provide new experiences every week.
Cost: gold coin donation per child, per session. Bring your own food and drink.
