"Thank you" to Luke Martin of Leo Electrical Services Ltd, who come in today with a 5-bag donation of much needed food for our FEED project. We constantly need more donations and every contribution, no matter how small, is greatly valued and appreciated.
Fantastic to see our Area Action Partnership funded Welfare Champions winning an award last night for ‘a project without equal’, collected by some of the original Welfare Champions!
Here are a few photos from this morning's Active Minds session, with the group exploring and chatting about a selection of antique clocks, compasses and other small curios.
Active Minds is a group originally started as part of our Colour Your Life programme. The sessions are aimed at people living with dementia and each week they are engaged through a range of activities from music to film, from reminiscence to antiques. The group also provides some respite for full-time carers.
Active Minds runs every Wednesday 10am-12pm at Community House.
A huge "Thank you" to everyone who donated much needed food to our FEED project over the Easter period. It's wonderful to see our local community supporting one another.
Similarly, we would like to extend another big "Thank you" to all our volunteers for their tireless work.
We are, however, seeing increased demand for food parcels, so we urgently need more donations. Every little helps and we are grateful for everything we receive.
