Back in July Gemma Baker (Milford Haven School) and Dayle Gibby (Milford Youth Matters), were successful in jointly securing a grant fund from the Big Lottery Community Fund. The project was named Milford Haven Community Covid Care (MHCCC for short), and sought to engage with the community of Milford Haven to support residents that had been negatively affected by CVD19 and the surrounding circumstances.
As you can see below, with the grant money received a huge amount of resources and support was injected into Milford Haven over the 5 week summer period:
*165 meal packs were distributed, along with 35 vege packs and supplements
*25 Healthy cookbooks, written by a local nutritionist
*90 Boredom Buster activity packs for young people age 0-16
*52 children’s craft packs, and a large donation of resources to Havenhurst care home for residents
*Over 500 reading books
*135 reusable sanitary pad packs, & 1344 organic environmentally friendly single use sanitary pads with recyclable packaging
Dayle Gibby (Milford Youth Matters) has said, “It has been absolutely fantastic to work in partnership with Milford Haven School. It was an honour to deliver these services to young people and the wider community during these difficult and unprecedented times. I look forward to working with the school again in the future, we continue to look for as many avenues as possible to support local residents that need our help.”

Milford Haven School are proud to have set up the ‘MHCCC’ project with Milford Youth Matters, we feel it has benefited our school community on a large scale during a time when need was truly great. We would like to thank the The National Lottery Community Fund for their financial support, without you none of this would have been possible.

What can you do with 50p?

You could buy a lettuce, a porridge pot, a mars bar, OR you could take part in “MHS 100 Reasons”!
We are looking for 100 people that want to collectively make a positive difference here in Milford Haven. By all members contributing just 50p a week, we are looking to give away £100 a fortnight to good causes here in Milford Haven. That’s £2600 a year being injected into our own community!
We would really appreciate your support to kickstart this new venture. If you would like to sign up there is a link below for the sign up sheet, if you have any questions or would like more information please contact gbaker@milfordhavenschool.co.uk.
You can also help us by sharing this post to spread the word, you do not need to be directly connected to MHS to take part in this project- you just need to want to make a positive impact here in our home town. 🙌
