Morag's journey...

Morag was referred to the Wellbeing Circle 8 months ago, suffering from a downturn in self-esteem and confidence, which led her to remaining more and more within the confines of her own home, cutting community connections. Suffering from an acquired brain injury left Morag scared to venture out and worried for her future, as her network of friends became more distant, given her fear of venturing out. It was clear that Morag had a lot to offer and after numerous conversations we slowly introduced her back into supportive spaces and networks, where she quickly gained confidence and resilience to not only attend, but to support and encourage others who were in need of similar connections and interdependent relationships. Morag attends Community Fridge, where she now has a regular voluntary shift, to support other residents access this worthwhile and supportive project. Morag has now rebuilt her confidence, friendships and carries her infectious smile front and centre, evidencing her new found resilience and capacity to build and support others take similar steps forward…

To learn more about the Community Fridge and who it supports see below from lead co-ordinator Tiia Stephens.

At the Community Fridge we collect and rescue short dated food or food that is nearing its sell by date. We collect this food from supermarkets and redistribute it at our shop, to prevent food from going in to waste or in to landfill. All of the food we collect is still safe and good to eat. Anyone can access the food from our community fridge which is located at 181 Oxford Road in Windsor SL4 5DX, where we are currently open Tuesday to Friday 11am to 1pm. We ask the following: that you wear a mask when entering the small shop to protect our volunteers, that you need to bring a carrier bag for the food that you choose. We are a charity and we rely on your cash donation when you visit the community fridge ( as all of the donations received go to keep the shop running costs paid, which keeps the shop open)

The Community Fridge helps reduce food waste, it helps families save money, it also helps to connect the community, We are looking for volunteers to help in the community fridge on a set day each week, and for volunteers to help collect food donations from supermarkets in Slough, Ascot and Maidenhead
