We will be closed for a break soon. We will be closed from 12:30 pm on Friday 21st December 2018 and reopen on Wednesday 16th January 2019.
For the first week of opening next year we will be able to assist people from 10:00 am to 12:30 pm, due to staff training.
A big thank you to everyone who has generously donated to our Christmas Appeal. It has been a very successful event.
To all of you who helped, thank you for helping us to make Christmas better for so many people in our community who are disadvantaged. We hope that your Christmas is great!
Our Christmas ‘giving tree’ is usually in the Belgrave Library right up until near Christmas so that people can put gifts under the tree for children who are disadvantaged. However, this year the library will be closed for painting between Dec 10-14. The library will be open again on Saturday the 15th. So if you want to donate a gift whilst the library is closed, please take it to us (in the Belgrave Community Hub) up until Friday 14th. Or you can drop it off at the library on Saturday the 15th. We are giving the presents out on Monday the 17th. Thank you kindly.
Our Christmas Appeal has begun. If you would like to help, but are wondering what to donate, here is a list of items that would be appreciated:
* Water crackers
* Long-life milk
* Long-life custard
* Savoury biscuits
* Sweet biscuits
* Gravy mix
* Fruit cake
* Pet food
We are also appealing for donations for Christmas gifts for Children. You can put a gift under the tree at the Belgrave Library, or donations can be dropped off directly to us at:
Belgrave Community Hub

It is with great sadness that we share the news that Fred, one of our volunteers, has passed away. Our Emergency Relief Service and Drop In Centre will be closed on Friday 2nd November 2018, so that all of Fred’s colleagues can attend his funeral. Fred was a much loved part of our team for the last few years, and will be missed by all of us.
