Music & Movement @ RUSH 2The DEN
RUSH 2THE DEN TOTS & ADULTS is a CIO charity. Registered Charity Number 1172562.
During this very difficult time of disruption caused by COVID -19
Normal activities temporarily closed due to COVID-19, however we diversified as the 2 charities compiling fortnightly FREE activities and crafts packs for over 600 of our local children and young people to assist their mental health and wellbeing, hand delivered to ensure continuity of support in the community and safety for the recipients.
The building is also utilised as a food donations facility, collating donations of surplus food from our local supermarkets and other UK companies to donate to our local community.
In addition to the food donations we have extended our free service of Swap Shop facilitating parents helping parents as a hub for babies, children's and young people's clothing, books, equipment and toys opened when the food donations are available.
As lockdown lifted and our New National Normal emerged we restarted outside activities for young people Socially Distance Compliant with outside park games and country side walks giving the opportunity of routine, sociability with sessions / days for each age range we usually cover between the youth club and Tots & Adults. During these daily SDC activities we provided packed lunch options free of charge to our youngsters attending to assist the families and ensure a balanced nutritious daily availability to assist with a positive diet until their schools (Youth Club) or Our Sessions (Tots) can resume, in September 2020
WE would like to thank everyone for their support for both RUSH 2The DEN and each other during this very difficult time. it has proven to us that RUSH 2The DEN is a pinnacle hub for our community and will strive to ensure it is there for many years to come.
