Recently, some hope springs staff and volunteers came together to prepare beautiful care packages for hope springs participants who have been struggling with lockdown.

Sixty care packages were prepared, which included a greeting card, a poem on a painting (written and painted by one of our volunteers), biscuits from church volunteer bakers, a lovely cake of soap, a coffee sachet, a can of soft drink, a chocolate and a fresh mango. Some participants also received a handmade boomerang bag, very kindly donated by Watsonia Neighbourhood House.

The care packages were distributed by hope springs staff, Jon Rumble and JJ, in mid-October and they have already received many appreciative messages from recipients.
