Community round-up: Goold Estates funds counselling for local children

Goold Estates has linked up with independent charity, Black Country Women’s Aid (BCWA), to support counselling services for local vulnerable women and children. 

The charity will use a financial donation to fund the delivery of some of its children’s services, as well as providing emergency packages for victims of abuse who have had to flee their homes.

BCWA has supported survivors of domestic abuse and sexual violence in the West Midlands for 30 years, covering areas including Walsall, Wolverhampton, Sandwell and Dudley.

Sue Hanley, charity manager for Goold Estates, said “I am really impressed by the work the charity carries out in what are often the most desperate of circumstances for the women and families affected. 

“On a day-to-day basis the victims they see, both adults and children, have been exposed to the likes of domestic abuse, sexual abuse and trafficking. Many of them have had to leave home without any of their belongings.

“We are looking forward to building a long-lasting relationship with the team at BCWA and further supporting their incredible work.”

Foodbank donation helps to “keep the doors open”

Black Country Foodbank has expressed its thanks for the ongoing support of Goold Estates in enabling it to continue to distribute vital supplies of food and toiletries to individuals and families in the region.

The charity manages 26 foodbank distribution centres throughout Dudley, Sandwell and Walsall and has recently opened a new distribution centre in Pensnett.  

Jen Coleman, chief executive officer of Black Country Foodbank said: “We are so grateful for the financial support that we have received from Goold Estates which is helping us to keep up with demand.

“Financial donations enable us to buy food and toiletry items, make sure that our vans are safe and have fuel, keep the warehouse doors open and help us to pay our ever increasing energy costs.” 

New computers for Dudley charity 

A Dudley-based charity for disabled people has taken receipt of new IT equipment following a donation by Goold Estates.

Disability in Action provides tailored support programmes for adults in the borough with physical or sensory disabilities.

Part of the Queens Cross Network, the charity is run and managed by a dedicated and friendly group of volunteers – all with disabilities. 

Sam Harris, a volunteer at the charity who communicates with the aid of a speech activation device, said that its new SONY Playstation 5 had proven to be an especially popular addition. 

He said: “A big thank you to Goold Estates for your donation, the boys will get a lot of use out of the new PS5!”
