    Evie and Susannah Stanton’s Rainbows- fund raising for the NHS

    by Zanna2, 8 days ago

    As an employee of CWAC myself I wanted to bring the community together in anyway I could when lockdown first started. My daughter and I decided we wanted to do something to show the NHS workers and Carers in care homes how much the public appreciated them. We started making little rainbows out of Coaster size wooden off cuts, nails and loom bands and sold them for £1 each from an honesty table at the bottom of my drive to raise money. Sadly the table was stolen after a few days but that didn’t stop us, Evie’s grandad made a... Continue reading

    Activity Packs From The Boaty Theatre Company

    by Boaty T, 9 days ago

    The Boaty Theatre Company are a small charity based in Ellesmere Port. We have been performing in and around Ellesmere Port for the last 10 years or so, starting our journey at the National Waterways Museum, hence our name!!

    At the beginning of 2020 we performed 3 sell-out nights at the Lowry in Salford, a massive achievement for our cast, crew and director Laura Harris. With the profit we made from our time at the Lowry, we invested in our dream of creating an Arts-based community hub in the centre of town and so opened 'The Boat Shed' on Whitby... Continue reading

She was born very prematurely and requires 20 hours of nursing care a day due to a number of medical issues.

    A shining example of positive community spirt

    by Rachel williams, about 2 months ago

    Jeannie and Mary , two residents of Malpas who had both had enough of the mounting litter during lockdown on old hall street , decided they wanted to do something about it.

    Taking the litter picker by the handle, they set to the task in hand and six bags of rubbish later the area was left looking much more presentable .

    Jeannie and Mary have both set a shining example of positive community spirit and I would like to say thank you to them both .

    Community Volunteering

    by LizParry, about 2 months ago

    On 18th March, my flights for a spring break road trip around rural Halkidiki, Greece were cancelled. I decided to still take my annual leave from work as the country was in crisis and lockdown followed soon after Monday 23rd March, the day I was due to fly to Greece. I was already committing to a weekly food shop for my 95 year old housebound Auntie living on the Wirral. That week, I scaled up my food shopping to cover another Auntie in Chester, my parents in Chester and their elderly neighbour. I was really enjoying helping others, so when... Continue reading
