Individuals and organisations large and small are set to come together in Low Hill tomorrow (Tuesday 12 February) to celebrate some of the good things people can do to improve the quality of their life or the lives of others.
The Love Your Community event, taking place at Low Hill Community Centre, Kempthorne Avenue, from 10am-2pm, aims to not only give people the chance to find out about the help and support available from voluntary and community groups in the local area, but also share the little things they do which make them – and others – feel better.
A number of local groups have signed up to take part in the event, organised by the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Community Support Service, including Wolverhampton Library Service, the Carer Support Team, Wolverhampton City Credit Union, Low Hill Community Centre, HeadStart Wolverhampton, the Big Venture Centre and more.
Councillor Sandra Samuels OBE, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Adult Services, said: “There are some great things happening in our communities, and this Love Your Community event will celebrate them.
“We know that even little things can make a big difference to a person’s quality of life, and Love Your Community will showcase the support available from a wide range of voluntary and community groups and highlight the things people can do to help themselves and others.”
Tomorrow’s event has been organised by the Community Support Service, which provides help and support to people to remain independent and improve their wellbeing.
