Last month we announced that the fourth round of nominations were open for our 'In Edgware We Care' campaign - in partnership with The Broadwalk Centre. The campaign offers £500 worth of shopping centre vouchers to grassroots groups and charities to boost their neighbourhood projects, community spaces or services.
After receiving multiple nominations for the fourth donation, three finalists have been selected and it is up to you to decide who will receive this month's offering of £500 worth of Robert Dyas vouchers.
The Shishukunj Bhavan in Edgware is a safe, modern and accessible community centre. The organisation's aim is to make a lasting difference by promoting holistic activities for all children, adults and the elderly. The centre is available to the wider community for use through hire facilities and organised activities including performing arts, yoga, mother and baby groups and martial arts.
Shishukunj would use the £500 Robert Dyas donation to provide utensils, crockery and small appliances to ensure they could provide refreshments for meetings and community get-togethers. Products for activities, meetings and events such as small tech equipment (portable speaker, printer, extension cables for laptop presentations) and small utility items like recycle bins would also be purchased in order for Shishukunj to be more effective in supporting the Shishukunj - Bhavan Community Centre
Shaftesbury High School is a small special school in Harrow which meets the needs of students with a range of learning, sensory and physical difficulties, some of whom come from socially disadvantaged backgrounds.
The school is currently in the process of starting a Breakfast Club for their students and the £500 donation from Robert Dyas would assist them in purchasing suitable kitchen equipment.
Harrow Carers is an independent, local charity providing services for carers since 1996 that aims to improve carers' wellbeing and resilience so that they continue to care without compromising health and social inclusion. They provide a wide range of services including Mental Health and Wellbeing support, Respite breaks, older and young carers specialist support and HomeShare (matching people to provide "live-in" support).
Typical daily activities include drop-in sessions, one-to-one workshops, psychological training courses, casework, advocacy, emotional support, social activities, complementary therapies and counselling.
The charity is expanding this year by converting a flat adjacent to their building into office space. This extra space will be utilised for the charity's 'Older Carers' project to serve more people in Harrow over the age of 65 that care for a loved-one. From this space, activities and meetings would be held to provide moral support, expert advice and relaxation for carers and their cared-for. £500 from Robert Dyas would help the charity pay for paint and other materials needed.
