Volunteering Fair

Lisa attended the University of Leeds Autumn Volunteering Fair on Tuesday. The fairs’ are a great opportunity to link Caring Together with the local student community and the staff of the University.  Over 40 local charities and community organisations were in attendance so a great opportunity to network too. A very busy and full-on day but certainly worthwhile. Plenty of interest expressed in volunteering for and finding out more about their local Neighbourhood Network.

Peace

As part of the Anniversary of the signing of the Armistice in November 1918, Leeds City Museums are inviting individuals, groups and schoolchildren to make their own peace symbols which will be displayed in the Brodrick Hall at the museum from 11th-19th November 2018. Caring Together are delighted to be a part of this. The image above was created by one of our members in memory of one of her relatives who served during the war.

AGM

Caring Together held its AGM on the 28th September at Little London Community Centre. It was a good afternoon and as always a welcome opportunity to reflect on the work that we have been doing over the past year and to discuss plans for the year ahead. Many thanks to the Lord Mayor Graham Latty for attending and speaking. And a special thanks to Tesco Express on Burley Rd, who provided most of the food and refreshments for the event.

Games at the Drop-in

Caring Together were delighted to welcome Sam Pemberton, our local PCSO to our Drop-in last week. She talked with those attending and also handed out useful items that safeguarded against low level theft and street crime. Many thanks to her for this. The drop-in takes place every Thursday at Little London Community Centre and as the pictures show offer a variety of board games plus refreshments in an informal setting. If you, or anyone that you know, may be interested in attending, please speak with John on 0113 2430298
