New shop coming soon!

We are excited about our brand new venture – our new store, which is coming soon.

The Attic – affordable living. Will be based in Huntingdon and will provide access to affordable homeware as well as a section to promote and support local small business owners!

Please do keep an eye out for the launch and opening of our new store!

Huge support from CCC!

We were successfully awarded £1000 from the CRF fund, via Cambridgeshire County Council.
Our project will support young girls who face disadvantage and barriers to access Girl Guiding. Due to poverty families aren’t in a position to fund uniforms or the handbooks needed to enrol their child. We will provide both to enable them to join. Breaking down the barriers of poverty and discrimination that prevent children living in disadvantage to access positive activities.
The funding will be used to purchase uniform and the handbooks for 20 young people. Alongside, we will set up a ‘return and recycle’ initiative, where uniforms can be returned, and then re-issued to other young people. We aim to purchase a mixture of sizes to support the recycling process, as children grow. Diamond Hampers CIC volunteers will manage the Girl Guiding Badge project, although a strong partnership has been created with the local Guiding Association, to ensure that needs of children and families can be assessed and to ensure the uniforms are offered to families most in need.
We are super excited to kick start this new initiative!

We were so incredibly blessed this month with the volume of support from the community.

Our very own Diamond Hampers Fishing Team, raised us £200 from their charity fishing fundraising event.

The Spiritualist Church in Huntingdon donated a whopping £150.

September

Just like many others, September was hugely successfully in terms of the support we could offer and the people we managed to help.

We supplied 7,140 meals to people through our food hampers, across the wider community.

We have rescued an incredible 11.9 tonnes of food waste, which has generated approximately 28,198 meals! This is through our redirected waste in our Pantry store!

We saved a whopping 37,897.6kg (PPM) of Co2!

We prevented an incredible £9,520 worth of food from burning in landfill!

We have helped 53 families improve their situations, by finding longer term solutions to shape brighter futures for individuals and families.

We continue to work in friendship with Food For Nought and partners Social Echo, to help eliminate the need for food aid and strive to live in a world where EVERYONE can afford to shop independently!
