The Assembly Hall Theatre has announced that this year it will be supporting Nourish as its annual charity partner.
Nourish is a registered charity, providing short-term emergency food provisions and support to individuals and families experiencing crisis in the borough of Tunbridge Wells, South Tonbridge and surrounding areas.
The charity’s dedicated volunteers deliver food parcels to clients 365 days a year and are available overnight to respond to emergency calls prompted by domestic violence or sudden traumatic events, such as family relocation.
Over the last financial year Nourish provided emergency food for 4614 people in the local area, over 46% of whom were children under the age of 18.
Nourish Operations Manager, Dawn Stanford says of the news:
‘We are very excited to have been chosen as the Assembly Hall Theatre’s charity of the year and are very much looking forward to working together. It will be a great way to share what we do with the many visitors to the theatre, to have theatre employees visit our base as corporate volunteers and to give theatre audiences a chance to support local people in crisis, while also enjoying the many wonderful shows the theatre will have on offer this year.’
