Southampton folk who are struggling with the current cost-of-living crisis are invited to attend warm spaces in the city until the end of March (2023).
In partnership with Saints Foundation
The sessions hosted by Saints Foundation in partnership with us will provide somewhere warm and sociable for people to go as well as a free hot lunch.
As the cost-of-living crisis really hits, some people are having to choose between heating their homes or feeding themselves and their families. We have therefore teamed up with the Saints Foundation to host these warm spaces, which are much needed at the moment.
Anyone is welcome to come along and enjoy the warmth. They can also tuck into a free hot lunch and have a chat with the other people who come along. There will also be the chance for them to take part in an exercise session if they choose to, to really get the heart pumping and warmed up.
The sessions will run from Tuesday to Friday until the end of March and take place at the following locations and times:
- Tuesdays from 10.15am – Graylings, Beechfield Court, Millbrook, SO15 8SL
- Wednesdays from 11.15am – Challis Court, Threefield Lane, Holyrood, SO14 3DQ
- Thursdays from 11.15am – Fairfax Court, Hinkler Road, Thornhill, SO19 6FU
- Fridays from 10.15am – Bassett Court, Bassett Green Road, Bassett, SO16 3FH.
