The McCarthy-Dixon Foundation prides itself on being 'a charity for the whole community.'
We launched during COVID-19 to help alleviate hunger and provide essential supplies, primarily to vulnerable residents who were sheltering, low-income families and furloughed workers. Now in the process of evolving into a fully functioning support group, we aim to enhance wellbeing and improve the standard of living for Northampton residents, in particular those who are faced with sudden hardship. In the height of the pandemic, a team of volunteers worked tirelessly to deliver around 1000 packages a week to members of the community, 29 schools and 13 community, council and NHS groups. Having been up and running now for nearly 6 months, we have fed around 25,000 people – something we are incredibly proud to have achieved.
As well as alleviating hunger, we have a number of other initiatives in place focussing on the mental health and wellbeing of the community. We recently launched our fortnightly ‘affordable haircuts’, providing a professional level of hairstyling at a budget friendly-price. We have also cleared and renovated around 50 neglected gardens for local residents. We aim to continue this free service on a nomination basis in which members of the community can nominate friends, family or neighbours for a much-needed home or garden makeover. We are also offering community cooking classes, a weekly food larder and doorstep buddies for elderly and vulnerable Northampton residents.
We need your help so we can continue to offer and even expand our service!
Thank you for your support and good luck!
