Edlington Hilltop Helping Hands Centre and Aspiring2 Deliver 100 Smile Packs


Smile Packs for local people -

Aspiring2 working with Edlington Hilltop Helping Hands Centre. The initiative was put in place by the Helping Hands staff and we saw the huge benefit of this and asked if we could co deliver the project as a match funding opportunity. Thanks to the funding we already have in place to host Healthy Roadshows throughout Doncaster this seemed a perfect diversity to allow us to still check on our local residents and offer information to match local need as well as making Smiles along the way – Healthy Futures funding is allocated to us by Doncaster Council. Over 100 packs have gone out which includes a plant, chocolate, cakes, activity book, a candle or room diffuser along with a greeting card make by local kids. The Smile Pack recipients are nominated by local people for local people and have currently been distributed to some of the most vulnerable and isolated individuals in our community covering Edlington, Conisbrough, Denaby, Mexbrough and Swinton with the odd couple out at Tickhill and Bessacarr.
