NURTURE CENTRE, CAMBRIAN PLACE, CARMARTHEN
Nurture centre is one of those places that every town should have, the aims of Nurture Magu CIC are to increase the Wellbeing of our community.
After a very successful first few years; they somehow made it through having to be closed for almost a year during Covid. During this time classes were moved online and opened up the garden for social distanced groups to meet outside.
The centre has developed and provided spaces for over 150 groups and practitioners. Currently running at the centre is Mama creatives, yoga, Tai chi, Pilates, Stroke physio, massage, Sound Therapy, Counselling for people with cancer, NHS mental health and eating disorder groups, LGBTQ group, Counselling, Adoption support, Play therapy, Contact meetings.
Nurture Centre runs the Carmarthen community freezer with Swperbox providing take-away meals for those who need them, and it also runs a food bank, Age Cymru coffee mornings and Toddler group - for free.
The centre recently opened up the cafe space as a 'Warm bank' Monday to Friday 10-3 with a self service drinks station. We have just applied for funding so we can offer a free/low-cost hot meal 3 times a week.
There have been some fantastic times but have also had so many problems and faced a steep learning curve trying to keep things going.
At the moment, finances are extremely tight, and they have embarked on a number of fund raising opportunities, including a GoFundMe page at https://www.gofundme.com/f/saveourcentre as well as applying to various funding bodies for more exciting projects for the warm space.
These concerts are a way of providing much needed funds and also to introduce people to this very special place.
Thank you for your support.
