Bridlington based charity The Hinge has been an integral part of the effort to help vulnerable residents in the town for several years – but they have become an instrumental part of a newly formed emergency hub during Coronavirus outbreak.
Jo Saunders and Megan Robinson from the Hinge are helping with the running of the emergency hub at the ER Leisure Centre on The Promenade along with staff and volunteers from ERYC.
Jo, who is Manager of The Hinge Centre, said:
“The benefits that have been gained during this very difficult and sometimes tragic times, will be felt long after the grip of lockdown is released.”
“The systems that The Hinge Centre have had in place for many years have ensured that the Bridlington Hub was run as efficiently and as effectively as any across the entire county.”
“We are very proud to have been able to serve our community to such an extent and we are very grateful for the mountain of positive feedback that it has subsequently generated.”
Added Jo: “If you would like to help the team at The Hinge to help those less fortunate in and around Bridlington please call the number below or email us and we would be delighted to hear from you anytime. You can also become a Friend of The Hinge.”
“Finally we would like to send out our heartfelt thanks for the wave of generous donations that we have received from the public, to enable us to bring such benefit to those in need. Please continue to support us wherever possible, as we are totally self-funded – we receive no central government or local authority statutory support.”
