H.A.D. has been chosen for the next round of the Co-op Local Community Fund.

Exciting news from Co-op

H.A.D. are delighted and excited to have be chosen as one of the Co-op Local Community Fund’s.

Our project idea is Breakfast Buddies a twice weekly group between 9-10am when clients can get together for a chat over toast & a cuppa.

Many of our clients arrive on dial-a-ride to attend H.A.D. this often means they have to take an early collection time and sometimes they have to miss breakfast.   Other clients arrive early as them have news, problems or information they would like to share or discuss with someone.

H.A.D. would like to provide a welcoming environment when they can arrive, talk, share, met others and enjoy a light breakfast.  This will also mean when their activities are due to start they are ready to begin and will gain more from the sessions.

If you are interested in signing up to support H.A.D. see the Co-op website or ask H.A.D. staff for details.

The Co-op Local Community Fund helps pay for local projects that their members care about.

Every time members shop at Co-op, 1% of what they spend on selected own-branded products and services goes to help fund community projects where they live.

They will also give all money raised from shopping bag sales to local causes, to help even more.

Healthy Soup Making Workshop

Wonderful workshop this morning, showing how easy it is to make healthy, nutritional and delicious soups from scratch.  We picked our herbs grown by our ‘Growing Herbs and happiness’ gardening club. We had a selection of fresh produce and everyone picked their favourites.

We all peeled, chop and sliced together, and created 5 different dishes, which was enjoyed with thick warm crusty rolls by everyone in the centre.  The smells in our building was mouthwatering.

Thanks to the ‘Big Lottery Awards for All’ for supporting this mornings healthy eating workshop.
