Another local Mum, Emily Carter said, “Thanks so much for the treats! We’ve had lots of fun it’s really cheered us up on a wet day.

The YMCA in Andover also offer support to local families through their community cupboard. The YMCA Community Cupboard was set up to support vulnerable families within our community in Andover. It was started during the first lockdown , however it has become clear that there is a need to continue. They work in partnership with the local Andover community, Tesco and Co-op to stock their cupboards with the essentials that a family may require. This mainly includes packet and tin food products.
