Due to the COVID Pandemic, GRACE (Grantham & Rural Areas Community) has been set up within St Johns Church. The church has now been transformed into a contact/help point and Christmas toy store.
It is open EVERYDAY from 1-3pm as a place for people to go, who need a little bit of extra help. It is available to distribute foodbank vouchers, furniture, comfort care packages for the homeless and the all important christmas decorations. Extra social distancing and sanitisation methods have been put in place to keep both visitors and volunteers safe.
It also offers clothes, bedding, household goods, personal goods, food, drinks and its now home to a toy bank to make sure that children from struggling families have presents to open on Christmas day.
People can donate gifts and items direct to the church between 1-3pm everyday or drop them at Robert Holland Funeral Directors in town. Donations can also be given through PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org
All physical donations are left untouched for 72 hours to adhere to Coronavirus guidelines before they are sanitised and distributed to the local community.
