Birthday Donations

Written by

A huge thank you to Ann Lee, one of our lunch club clients, who recently turned 90 and was thrown a party by her family. Instead of gifts she asked for donations to our charity. I’m pleased to say that her generous friends and family raised £341 for us! We rely on donations and legacies to run all of our services so this thoughtfulness was very much appreciated.

New Body Positive class

Written by

Our Body Positive class has been so popular that we have created a second class. Led by Bobbie, the class uses a chair as a prop to strengthen every muscle in the body. They have a good laugh and many go to the Winton’s Cafe afterwards which has been an unexpected bonus of holding the classes at Winton House. Some of our attendees have also roped their husbands into coming along. We run the classes in blocks of 6 weeks on a Friday morning for £30. Do let us know if you would like to join the next group.

Mens’ Cookery

Written by

The new Men’s Cookery classes are a joint venture with Age Concern, the Men’s Shed and Winton House. At the pilot class in January six men came together to make spaghetti bolognese from scratch and enjoyed a glass of red wine afterwards as they ate together. The next class focused on making a chicken curry. We will be running more of these in the future so let us know if you would like to learn how to prep and cook tasty meals and impress your loved ones and friends!

Christmas Cheer

Congratulations to Marian, our cook, who prepared a delicious Christmas lunch for 60 of our lunch club members, and for the recorder trio for their entertainment. It was a massive achievement to cook for so many, helped by our wonderful team of volunteers. As you can see our clients also got into the Christmas spirit! A big thank you also to Waitrose who paid for everyone’s meal.
