Latest news from WCARA


First of all I hope you and your loved ones are safe and well and haven't been effected too much during this challenging time.

To support you during this difficult time, we have a number of volunteers who are providing essential support including shopping trips, medicine collection, hospital drops of essential items and friendly calls for those who need to self isolate and the vulnerable. Some of you have signed up to this great community work - a Big Thank you.

We have also been working with Alperton Community Group (Covid19 support volunteers) and collectively we are looking at number of different ways which will keep spirits up and help our mental health during this extraordinary time for all of us.

One such project we are proposing, is "Blossom 2020". The project will involve providing free bedding plants to residents in the area. This will help boost morale and also brighten up our front gardens, streets and surroundings around us.

WCARA committee has agreed to part fund this project and are now welcoming donations, large and small from residents and businesses. The money will go towards buying bedding plants from a wholesaler which we can give to residents.

At this difficult time, we want to do all we can to support the community and we believe this is a great idea to make that little bit of difference to us all.
