In May, POhWER successfully launched a new Community Advice Phone at the Baldock Community Centre in Simpson Drive. The phone can be used by those in need to call the HertsHelp Hub (0300 123 4044) for support and advice any time the centre is open at no charge. Community Centre staff are also available to help anyone unused to using a smartphone or reluctant to use a computer to access the helpline.

The Chilli Lounge Restaurant in Baldock very kindly sponsored the phone as part of our charity partnership which was set up in March 2018.

During the launch event Chilli Lounge restaurant owner Abbas also presented POhWER with a cheque for £790 which was raised through takeaway sales in the last year. We would like to say a huge thank you to Abbas and his team for all of their support as well as Baldock Community Centre for participating in such a community spirited partnership.
