The organisers behind the project felt it would be unfair to expect the volunteers to take any risks, so the opening has been rescheduled to early in 2021 when it is hoped there will be fewer restrictions.

One of the organisers, Jill Makinson-Sanders, said: “In the meantime, if there are any families who need help in the weeks coming up to Christmas, we do have supplies which can be distributed. We don’t want anyone to suffer in silence, we are here to help.

“If you have time on your hands and would like to knit or sew, your donations are always welcome.

“They can be left at the Trinity Centre or the parish church during opening hours.

“Equipment is welcome too, but not books and toys. The Lighthouse Project at the Methodist Church and the Refuge will accept these.

“A big thank you goes out to all the wonderful people who have donated items for the birth-to-18-months charity over recent weeks.

“We are so grateful to you all. Keep it coming!”

If you need assistance, call Jill Makinson-Sanders on 01507 600743 so that the Bundles of Joy team can make arrangements to be there for families.

Social distancing and face masks will be required.
