Welcome to The Well

The communities of Kibworth and the surrounding villages deserve a special place. A place that will provide friendship, warmth and safety. A place that offers something for each and every one of all ages.

That special place is The Well.

Phased re-opening of The Well

We are looking forward to re-opening our Charity Shop on Tuesday 14th July and would like to assure customers that all our risk assessments are in place and that we will be following all Government guidelines on how to keep everyone safe from Covid-19.

The shop will be open from 2 - 4pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Donations of GOOD QUALITY CLOTHING AND SHOES ONLY can be brought to The Well on any week-day afternoon from 2 - 4pm.


It would be enormously helpful if these could be placed in a bin liner and tied securely.

WE ARE UNABLE to take books or smaller accessories such as jewellery at this time and we CANNOT accept any bric-a-brac items, toys or games due to limited space and cleaning considerations.

Having closed for business on Saturday 21st March, in accordance with government guidelines, The Well is now preparing for a phased resumption of business, whilst seeking a future for the vital work started throughout the lockdown period.

The Well is supporting Harborough District Council and The Jubilee Food Bank by providing a ‘Pop-up’ Food Bank service in Kibworth, which also extends to many villages around. We are now in conversation with these partners and others in the local community to determine the future for this service and others that are emerging out of it, such as our telephone Listening Service for those who may be feeling down or affected by the crisis.

These services are only available by referral through the usual channels, and anyone who would like to know more can contact The Well via email to manager@thewellkibworth.org or by calling the landline 0116 279 0148 between the hours of 10am - 1pm on weekdays. Alternatively, you can connect with Emma via Facebook Messenger.

We hope to have plans in place for re-opening of the Cafe, groups and clinics in the autumn, but have much to prepare before then so wish to thank you for your continued patience. We do understand that The Well is an important social hub for many in the community and are really looking forward to welcoming old and new customers and clients back again.

Thank you so much,

Emma, Qyan and all the volunteers

 

Please will you sponsor Alan’s ‘John O’ Groats’ challenge?

Since lock-down began, the Rev. Alan Pyke has set himself the challenge of walking the distance from Lands End to John O’ Groats around Stuart Court – all 850 miles. So far, he is over the half way mark and expects to reach John O’ Groats sometime in early September.

The café at the Well will be in urgent need of redecoration before it opens again and it is hoped that we shall be able to do improvements to the kitchen to make it easier to work in for our volunteers Alan is seeking to raise money for the Well Cafe restoration plan.

If you would like to help you can donate online, or send your payment to The Well with the response form.
