Cassandra Centre and A.S.K.I. partner up for Free Meals Service

Cassandra Centre has partnered with Advice Support Knowledge Information (A.S.K.I.)  who were established in 2012.  We have come together to coordinate the free meals delivery service to the elderly, vulnerable and self-isolating senior members of the community until this service ends in June 2020.  A.S.K.I supports and signposts individuals who face barriers to inclusion, who with support, could go on to live productive lives and make a contribution to their community. We will both work together to make this useful project a success, and with your continued help and support, we believe that it will be.

Your help is appreciated

 

Free Meals Delivery Service

Free Meals during the COVID-19 pandemic

During the COVID-19 pandemic Cassandra Centre has been offering a free meals delivery service to the elderly, vulnerable, and self-isolating adults living within the Norbury and Pollard Hill areas and in Wandsworth and Lambeth too.

We’d like you to let us know if you have a family elder, an elderly neighbour, or if you have any clients that could benefit from this free service.

The meals will be cooked beforehand and delivered between 1pm to 6pm on Thursdays during April.  For the adults living in Wandsworth and Lambeth, we have partnered up with A.S.K.I. to make sure that the delivery of the meals will continue until 25th June 2020.  We’ll need the names, addresses and contact numbers for each individual as soon as you can, so please ask them to contact us straight away or you can let us know their address or contact details yourself by contacting us using our details on the flyers below.

Please contact us by midday on Wednesdays to secure a delivery for the following day.

Online Chair-based Dance programme

Hannah Ruth is a dance instructor and she’s been asked to produce a six-week online chair-based dance programme by A.S.K.I, for senior members of the community to help keep them fit while they’re at home during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown. The classes have been choreographed for those who require seated exercise and so far there have been four classes.
