Here at Julian Wadden Reddish we are proud to support local charity Re:dish which is a local cause aimed at bringing local members of the community together and redistributing food, clothes, furniture and skills around Reddish.

Based in the heart of Reddish at Houldsworth square Re:dish is a charity that aims to improve the lives of everybody in Reddish. Below is just some of the fantastic work the charity does in our area;

  • Identify and reduce food poverty by providing no-cost and low-cost food, by using local expertise to encourage healthy nutrition and by teaching the growing and cooking of fresh food;
  • Identify and reduce individual isolation by reconnecting people to networks of help and support;
  • Help people cope with debt, providing access to professional advice, support and education

All this fantastic work is made possible by the kind efforts of local volunteers and the money raised in the charity shop located on the high street. Call into Re:dish to learn more about this cause and pick up one of our Enjoy Local shopper bags!
