Marley Street Community Hub in Sale is celebrating Neighbourhood House Week by offering free activities from Monday, May 9 to Thursday, May 12.

As a charity, the Community Hub aims to address social isolation, hardship, inequity and disadvantage by providing emergency relief, increasing community participation and providing support services.

Manager Rae Ellis said Foodbank and the local community regularly donate food to help those in need.

“There are more people struggling than ever,” Ms Ellis said.

“During COVID people found that their work was unstable or they lost work suddenly. But coming out of COVID, we’re finding that rising costs of living is making it hard for many people to make ends meet. The rising costs of groceries, rent and petrol are all having an impact.”

Ms Ellis said she hopes that the community gets involved next week for Neighbourhood House Week.

“We want to support people with our social inclusion activities and get them connected to the hub. Our slogan is ‘Where Everyone Matters’, so we’re inclusive of everyone,” she said.

“We’re having a barbecue, setting up a plant stall, and Bunnings Warehouse will do a gardening workshop.”

Marley Street Community Hub at 2/81-83 Marley Street in Sale continues to welcome new volunteers, members and donations of food and money.
