Once again, Storrington’s Neighbourhood Wardens, Chris Poore and Alison Page, have brought together local organisations to aid local families in need.
They arranged funds primarily from Make A Difference Locally (MADL), topped up from a Community Fund administered by Storrington Community Partnership.
The money was used to buy goods to help families, especially those with young children, through the winter. The goods are being distributed by the Wholesome Warehouse.
The photo shows Chris and Alison (centre) handing over the goods to the Wholesome Warehouse team on Wednesday 7th December 2022. Representatives from MADL, the NISA store, the Community Partnership and the Parish Council are present.
Make A Difference Locally (MADL) is a charity that has been established to help the communities served by the local independently-owned convenience stores that are partners of NISA, a buying organisation. For Storrington this is the store attached to the Power Service Station.
