A day of exchange skills come and learn some – craft tables – card making/ flower making / pebble painting – play for children and adults – games think grandmas footsteps– and any other skills the community would like to bring and share. Also we are asking all to donate 1 piece of clothing / baby nappies/ sanitary products/ toys for our local refugee charity, Also one piece of food tins/pasta/ cleaning products for our local Food Drop. We invite you to bake a cake or cookies (or buy them) to share at the event – this of course, is all optional.
Have now a couple of neighbours who are deciding what to do on their craft tables, am to have a meeting with the local venue Manager and the Manager from the residential home linked to the venue to ask if they would like to engage with us – maybe create paper flowers and deliver them to the residents by attaching them to string for the older residents who may be not be well enough to attend. An idea for people to bring one peice of clothing or sanitary products and one piece of food and organise a drop to the local food drop and the local refugees charity. Also an idea to invite people to bring a cake or biscuits to share. As the facility has a cafe we are going to discuss if the cafe will be open for teas and coffees and drinks or invite the local coffee van. Also I have created a zoom to ensure those who would like to join can access the event.
I have booked the venue and created my volunteer account today and secured the date.
Bumped into some neighbours who are also up for getting involved.
