Welcome to the work of hope trust. We are a local Christian charity serving Felixstowe and the surrounding area, working with people aged 50+, however our Christian heritage should not be seen as a barrier; we work with people who need us, regardless of faith or ethnicity. Currently our major focus is on the relief of loneliness and our aim is to encourage people to come out of their homes, into a welcoming and relaxed setting, where they can meet up and chat with others; finding new communities and groups of people to connect with.

Away in a Manger - only 10 months early!
The nativity display has been packed away ready for the story to be told all over again in just 10 months time. The Christmas season speaks of giving, of receiving and of sharing; but surely it is a message that transcends December, so the question for February 2017 and beyond, is, what do we give, what do we receive and what do we share?
For us here at Hope Trust the challenge is one we face with relish, even if we don’t have all the answers! So, we resolve to give good advice to anyone who ask us questions about situations they are finding challenging. We will receive with grateful thanks every kind word, generous gift and positive observation of what we do well (and what we could do better); we will share our time, our events, as well as the support of every valued volunteer with anyone who needs us. Whether it is promoting our next Bereavement Support Group which starts on 3rd April, our monthly Sunday lunches, our regular weekly Tea & Chat sessions, Men’s events or something completely new, we remain alive to the possibility of doing everything better as well as starting something innovative and new. Feel free to join us.
