    Fish 'n' Chip freebie for the Jolly Codgers Lunch Club at the Woodlands Park Village Centre.

    by The Jolly Codgers Lunch Club, 11 months ago

    Our lunch club members enjoying their freebie Fish 'n' Chips dinner and afternoon out at the Jolly Codgers Lunch Club, Woodlands Park Village Centre. The afternoon included Fish 'n' Chips followed by Ice Creams for Dessert and a game of bingo. The Club helps our members battle loneliness and build friendships in their local community. Many of our members have made new friends now meet up throughout the week for coffee, dinner etc. Pictures taken after lunch was served, as things get a little manic while serving out all those portions. A good day had by all.

    Community Warm Space & All Souls Community Coffee Shop

    by aledpugh, 12 months ago

    The community warm space and coffee shop is going brilliantly, we thoroughly enjoyed the visit by Nicky and Sumayyah last week, and appreciate all the support.

    We've now got groups filling up the week, making it an engaging, accessible, useful community space for all. A few weeks ago we launched the Share Fresh Food Bank on Friday afternoons, collecting near end date food from local supermarkets and making it available for those in need in the community.

    We're also looking to introduce a seated exercise class for later in the week.

    Last month we had a cupcake decorating masterclass for some of our members. This was held in Eton and thoroughly enjoyed by all.


    Our members were taught how to ice and then create shapes to decorate the cupcakes and were lucky enough to take these home afterwards!

    Befriending and Older peoples social groups

    by Age Concern Windsor, about 1 year ago

    The original project was to run one to one telephone befriending as we found that a good number of people who had befriending during the pandemic were still looking for company. The group included people who were unable to get out or those who had very poor health. They really appreciated the call each week and didn’t want to stop as ti was still very difficult for them to go out.

    From a Befriendee: - “The befriending has been great I have made a real friend, we see each other most weeks for about an hour. We have such a... Continue reading

    Nature's Haven partners with the amazing volunteers at GoodGym

    by Nature's Haven, about 1 year ago

    On an expected stormy morning, which turned out to be muggy instead, four GoodGymmers made their way to help out Nature's Haven with setting up a community garden at the Youth & Community Centre.

    This is a wonderful group who are trying to build a sensory garden for the people who use the centre - youth and elderly alike. The plan for this morning was to create some raised planter beds.

    We started by carrying some wooden planks to the makeshift workshop (cycle racks) for some of the other volunteers to saw into the right size for building the planters.

    Blokes Losing Timber has been a Long Walk

    by JonDavey, about 1 year ago

    (Video wouldn't add to this page for some reason... click here or on image above to watch me read out the report below... thank you.)

    When I saw the opportunity for funding for innovative ideas back in the spring of 2022 I just had to submit an application.

    I’d been working at Tescos since Covid impacted all our worlds and had been looking for a project to engage my creative energies. Looking in the mirror, I knew I needed to do something about my weight and I’m not alone ;)

    My original idea brought together healthy eating, expert support and... Continue reading

    At Odd One Out we have engaged with young adults and sport enthusiasts to help tackle social isolation and loneliness.

    We have held Comedy Improv sessions in Kidwells Park and also have built a website to continue spreading the message about this on various social platforms. In addition, we started an Odd One Out Running Club and have had a genuine interest from those who are looking to balance out their calories with Summer Alcoholic Drinks.
