The story behind The Noah Community Project
The Community Noah Project was the brain child of four new mums who were enjoying their first ventures into parenthood. Through local mother and baby groups they became aware of one young mother who was fighting a daily battle to feed herself and her children. As any mother knows, we will do anything to protect our children and with that sense of unequivocal determination to help this poor mother and others like her, the four embarked on a personal mission to make their lives just a little bit easier. The question was, how?
First they looked at the reasons why people were having to ask for food parcels and quickly realised that life is never that simple. These struggling families needed a more complete support package if the four were going to help them back on to an even keel.
In 2014, Denise Billington founded The Noah Community Project, with the support of other local mums and began to help families across Cornwall. Within a few months, their hard work was recognised and they were awarded The Cornish Guardian Community awards 2014 – Charity Hero for Children, The Take a Break 2014 and The Family Hero Award - Carer of the Year 2015. Denise left the project in 2015 having achieved great things and now her good work is continued by our very own Diane Bird.
