Holly's Angels reopens food distribution hub at Park Theatre
3 February 2021
In December, with support from Nina Graverny-Edwards (Community Engagement Manager, Park Theatre), Michael Peavoy (Former Deputy Venue & Volunteer Manager, Park Theatre) and Amrit Maan (Punjab Restaurant, Covent Garden), Holly Adomah Thompson (Park Sessions: Get Into It & Cafe/Bar team) turned our space into a food distribution hub to accept donations of dry food, essential items and wrapped gifts for children during Christmas.
We are proud to announce that Holly and her team of volunteers (who have named themselves Holly’s Angels) will be reopening the food distribution hub. On Sat 06, Sun 07, Sat 13 and Sun 14 Feb, we will be re-opening our doors to collect donations for those in our community who need it the most this month. Our collection service will be open from 11am until 2pm at the theatre and donations will be collected by the team.
Holly is working to support the Elizabeth House and Andover Estate community centres, as well as local creatives who are experiencing hardship at this time and we are encouraging you to bring along any aforementioned donations. Amrit Maan has also kindly donated 300 frozen curries for community members, especially local artists to come and collect from Park Theatre.
We have a socially-distanced system in place in order to accept your donations safely. We ask that patrons wear face masks when making donations and not to enter the space due to lockdown egulations. Donations will be collected by the team outside the venue within the designated area.
We are looking for the following donations:
● Toys for children - colouring books, small toys, soft toys, board games
● Toiletries – deodorant, toilet paper, shower gel, shaving gel, shampoo, soap, toothbrushes, tooth paste, hand wipes, children’s toiletries
● Household items – laundry liquid detergent, laundry powder, washing up liquid
● Feminine products – sanitary towels and tampons
● Baby supplies – nappies, baby wipes and baby food
● Face masks and hand sanitiser
● Valentine’s Day themed gifts - chocolates, teddy bears, cards (unsigned)
Please contact Holly at [email protected] if you have any questions, to want to find out more or if you’d like to receive a package.
