Pulp Friction continues to support it’s members and the community during Covid-19

Pulp Friction has moved online to support it’s members by providing dancing classes, singing lessons, cooking challenges, one to one check-ins and, much more. Our members, families and carers are really enjoying the continuation of service and the opportunity to meet and see friends online.

Pulp Friction is also working hard with FareShare to deliver food to the people in the community and residential homes across the city of Nottingham, Broxtowe Borough and the wider county of Nottingham. Nottingham Fire and Rescue Service are helping us deliver the food we receive from Fareshare. We have also teamed up with the White Lion Pub (Top House) in Bramcote to cook and deliver meals to homes in the Bramcote, Chilwell, Stapleford.

Covid- 19

Due to the current health emergency, we are having to scale back our services. This is a worrying time for our members, customers, and staff and we will do our utmost to be able to resume a full service once the crisis subsides. We are going to be working with other providers to provide food and prepared meals to vulnerable and isolated members of the community. This crisis may well threaten the sustainability of Pulp Friction, however, we will be working hard to keep going!

When East meets West (Midlands), great things happen!

Community Catalysts have been helping community enterprises to start and grow for 10 years and during that time we’ve got to know so many inspiring people. People who, over time, have taken an idea, turned it into a successful micro-enterprise and then developed it into a really sustainable local business, employing people and changing lives. Once in a while, it gives us great pleasure to be able to introduce those established enterprises to new and emerging ones – giving bigger enterprises a chance to help the people they once were. Read the full article below.

Come on, let’s get together
