Sister Christine's Projects
COMMUNITY COHESION :
Neighbours in Poplar began over 50 years ago, concentrating on isolated elders. However we have always been ready to help in any project which promotes community cohesion. Therefore a number of projects have grown over the years - these include:
1. Homeless Project
Caring for the Homeless in St. Matthias - we have done this for over 9 years
2. Calais Trips
Regular community trips to Calais and the refugee camps. We began monthly trips 5 years ago. We had to stop in March because of COVID, but hope to resume soon again
3. Summer Project
This will be our 49th Project and has been responsible for getting thousands of Poplar residents to the Seaside over the years. Inclusion and community understanding have always been our priority.
4. COVID-19 Response Project
Since March we have ran our COVID-19 Response Project and delivered our 6000th Hot Meals to residents all over the Borough.
