Guest article from AVOW
From November 28, members of the public can call into Shopmobility Wrexham to get warm, have a hot drink, and to speak with friendly staff from the Association of Voluntary Organisations in Wrexham (AVOW) if they’d like conversation or company – while waiting for their transport or taking shelter from the winter weather.
Free tea and coffee will be available for self-service, and biscuits will be provided on a first come first served basis. This service will be available during regular Shopmobility opening times, on Mondays and Thursdays from 10 am to 4 pm.
AVOW’s Chief Officer, Dawn Roberts-McCabe, said: “Anyone needing a warm, safe space this winter is welcome at Shopmobility Wrexham to enjoy a hot drink, have some friendly company if they’d like it, and to take refuge from the winter cold while they wait for their transport home – please do call in!”
If members of the public wish to share why they need a warm space, AVOW staff will listen and signpost where possible.
Should members of the public need additional help or support with the cost of living, AVOW staff will put them in touch with organisations that might be able to help provide support.
