Milford Community Action (MCA)- week 3 update
As many of you will hopefult already know, Milford Community Action (MCA) is a new and exciting project delivered jointly by Milford Haven School & Milford Youth Matters , with collaboration from a variety of local businesses/ groups. The initial funding has come from Gareth Edwards, Group Manager for Prevention and Early Intervention at Pembrokeshire County Council ; there is already widespread engagement across the cluster, sharing a selection of resources to support families in need.
This week we have given out:
*67 information packs, including local support services such as Parent Partnership and PAVS
*67 pancake baking kits for children- plus links to an online cooking demo
*57 pasta bake meal kits- everything needed to feed the family a hearty meal for less than a fiver
*10 slow cookers
*10 slow cooker cook books
*10 slow cooker meal packs
*42 sports activity packs for KS1 age children
A special thanks to Rominy from Chwaraeon Sir Benfro / Sport Pembrokeshire , for the generous donation of 42 physial activity packs. The contents of the packs are ideal to support phyical literacy in young people, encouraging learning and development through play.
We would again like to thank the MHS cleaning team and Mrs Gibbons (LSA) who between them put together over 130 care packages yesterday in less than an hour! Thanks also to the MHS Engagement Team, TAF, CFW and CFW+, and again Milford Haven Rotary Club for distributing all of the packs- without your support we couldn’t connect the project across the cluster int he way that we are. Another true Milford Haven team effort!
We look forward to sharing with you all what week 4 of the MCA project brings as we continue to do all we can to support our community through these challenging times. Diolch yn fawr
