Funding from Bombardier has supported Footprints Kitchen Garden this year and the Garden Group had a very successful growing season. The harvest this year included cauliflower, broccoli, peas, carrots, onions, tomatoes, chard and beetroot. The fresh produce was used in the catering service providing the children in the Daycare facility and the Senior Citizens group with healthy, tasty soups and casseroles.
Lidl Community Crew visited Footprints Women's Centre on 6th October to deliver 60 food shopping bags with vouchers and samples of Lidl products. The centre was nominated by volunteer Pauline Diamond for Lidl's Community Works 'Random Acts of Kindness' Initiative. The goody bags will be given out to the various user groups and families availing of the Centre's servies and the volunteer team.
Cake tastes better at Footprints! On Friday 25th September we will be hosting a coffee morning for Macmillan. Last year we raised £300! Every little helps so we hope to see you there for some delicious cake and tea.
The senior ladies group at Footprints visited the Lord Mayor Arder Carson on the 2nd June 2015 with staff and volunteers. The ladies lobbied and rasied issues of recent funding cuts and their impact on older people in the community. We had a great time and got a lovely tour of the City Hall. Everyone is currently enjoying our summer scheme full of activities including a barbeque and outings to places such as Dobbies Garden Centre.
