Local charity, The Zink Project that runs High Peak Foodbank has launched an appeal to open a new community hub to support families and individuals in poverty, experiencing poor mental health or unemployment particularly as a result of Covid.  

Zink has acquired a building in central Buxton and needs to raise £80,000 for renovations.  

The new hub will include Zink’s current services, the foodbank, advice to resolve issues that cause poverty and employability programmes to help people into work. Buxton Community Eco-Café, also run by Zink will relocate to the new hub and be open on a more regular basis. It will use food that is surplus in the supply chain to provide nourishing meals to all.  

As well as opening existing services in the new hub, Zink also plans to run wellbeing services including alternative therapies, music therapy, events and activities; a job agency; an enterprise area for people who want to become self-employed; a book exchange; an upcycling project and regular events that bring people together.
