The Alternative Giving Campaign

St.George’s HUB is delighted to be part of the Alternative Giving scheme. http://www.wolverhamptonchange.co.uk/

The innovative campaign encourages people to donate money directly to local homeless charities, rather than giving it directly to someone begging on the city centre streets.  It aims to ensure that money goes direct to service providers/charities that help the homeless in Wolverhampton. By giving to the scheme, rather than directly to beggars, the public can then ensure that their money is used effectively as their good will intended.

Boxes can be found at the following locations.

Costa Coffee Queens Building
Express & Star Queen Street
Zuri Coffee Lichfield Street
Yates Queen Square
Boots Dudley Street
Wolverhampton City Council Civic Centre – Ground Floor near Cafe

Harvest time has begun at the  HUB! This year has seen a magnificent array of produce, the results of a great deal of hard work by the gardening club. The efforts of clients has been tremendous, our crop which includes potatoes, peas, beetroot, tomatoes and chilies is of the highest quality and is a tribute to all concerned.

‘Carillion Give and Gain’ day to benefit the HUB

Many thanks to the team from Carillion,  for their sterling work during the ‘give and gain’ day at St.George’s HUB on the 23rd May.  The team worked like trojans to decorate our premises, which is a wonderful contribution to a small charity working with the most excluded. Special mention to Paul, Rich and Kayleigh at Carillion for their commitment and enthusiasm to make the day such a success.  The clients are delighted with the results and the premises have taken on a whole new dimension.

Huge thanks also to Midland Decorators, for their support and to Keith Macintosh for his work to decorate the outside front elevation of our premises. Tom Evans from  PPG Architectural Coatings kindly agreed to supply the paint.

Thank you all.

Thanks to the Wolves Aid

Many thanks to Will from the Wolves Community Trust and players Nathan Byrne and George Saville for visiting us here today at the HUB. We are delighted to be working in partnership with Wolves Aid to assist some of the most vulnerable people in the city.

It was a fantastic opportunity for clients and players to interact and illustrate that Wolves are at the heart of the local community.  Their commitment is much appreciated by all at St.George’s HUB.

Leek at the HUB

security leeks

 

No we don’t mean water coming in from the roof!

Leeks are an excellent source of vitamin A, which aids vision and supports the immune system, and bone-building vitamin K and manganese. They also contain vitamin B6, which appears to reduce homocysteine in the blood; elevated levels of this amino acid are associated with a greater risk of heart disease, blood clots and strokes. 

What’s not to like?

‘Successfully overcoming addiction’ workshops

Successfully Overcoming Addiction’ workshops monthly in a wide range of problems that affect the clients that utilise our services.
