As some of you may have seen, Tidal Family Support Centre was badly damaged in the recent flooding. Tidal Family Support is a community based, not for profit, child-focused Charity that works with families who are directly impacted by separation or divorce. As the only contact centre on the Isle of Wight, many of our clients and their families will be affected by this. Many of the toys and equipment have been destroyed, along with the carpets and soft furnishings. In addition, an urgent electrical survey is required to determine whether the building is safe to use.
Whilst their insurance will cover some of the damages, urgent help is required to get them up and running as soon as possible, and to allow them to continue to offer a safe space for children and their families.
If you would like to support, Eldridges will be acting as a collection point for second-hand toys for the centre, once it reopens. These must be clean and undamaged. Alternatively, if you would like to make a financial contribution, please visit their website at https://www.tidalfamilysupport.org.uk/ to make contact with them directly. Even a small amount would help them greatly at this time.
