Its been a really busy couple of months with a number of new volunteers joining us, both in the co-op shop, and to help out with some of our projects in the wider community. Our Winter Soups Week, where we had some funding that enabled us to sell our £1 soup bags for 50p, meant we sold over 130 bags in just over one week! As a result the volunteers can now make up 8 different varieties of soup bag on request – with a free recipe card included!
We are holding an Open Day on 16th March to raise awareness of all Health & Wellbeing services that are available to the local community. This is being run by the Broomhouse Community Health Hub – a partnership prpject between ourselves and the Broomhouse Centre. There’s a whole host of free activities going on through the day across 4 venues in Broomhouse, from walking groups, to complementary therapies, to health checks and cookery classes. Should be a great day!
