We are very proud of our Basingstoke Project Manager, Phelim O’Hagan, who has received a lovely thank you letter from the Mayor of Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council for his hard work during the Covid-19 crisis.

Phelim and a small team of staff and volunteers worked tirelessly to adapt the usual operation of the Community Furniture Project in order to continue to meet the most urgent needs in the local community. The team delivered hundreds of food parcels, with food sourced via our membership of the FareShare scheme, and helped to furnish properties being used to house the homeless. They also repaired essential electrical items such as fridges so people in need could store food safely.
