Welcome to Regenerate-RISE
The Challenge of the Coronavirus Crisis
In the midst of the Coronavirus Crisis, we have had the news from our landlord that they want to sell the building that we have used for 15 years as well as substantially raising the rent. We are therefore launching a campaign to purchase the Platt Christian Centre in order that Regenerate-RISE can continue to provide a service to older people across the local community.
Since we closed our Centres in Battersea and Putney on 18 March 2020, we have achieved the following:
- Distributed 1,398 Supply Bags to older people in lockdown
- 1,555 microwavable meals to older people at home alone
- 115 Activity Kits with adult colouring, clay modelling, puzzle books, jigsaws, ceramic painting and a knitting kit
- Made 1,416 phone calls
- Given out 151 gifts as Expressions of Kindness
- Provided shopping and collected prescriptions
We have recruited 191 new volunteers and are extremely grateful to all those who have volunteered in the community to support older people across Wandsworth.
We have lit up the trees outside the Platt to say our "Thank You" to all the key workers in our community. If you would like to add a key worker to the tree, please come down and do so.
If you would like to support Regenerate-RISE to continue work from the Platt Christian Centre in Felsham Road, please email us and if you would like to do a fundraising event to raise funds for us to continue our work from the Platt Centre, please let us know - we would love to hear from you.
