Activities update January 2012Wednesday, May 30th, 2012
From October 2011 to January 2012 we developed a drama project funded by BBC, Children in Need.
The Right Choice enabled us to create a series of drama based sessions to address issues which are particularly sensitive among Asian communities. A short film titled “The Right Choice” was showcased on 23 December 2011 for friends and families.
One of the prizes as winners of the National Council for Voluntary Youth Services (NCVYS) award was some funding to deliver “The Healthy Eating Options Project”. Lots of recipes for meals and snacks were on the menu throughout Ramadan 2011.
Be Creative Feel Good was a project that created a story using the 5 Ways of Wellbeing established by the New the New Economics Foundation (Connect, Be Active, Take Notice, Give, and Keep Learning).
The group had a lot of fun making the comic and have been able to incorporate imagery from the outdoor activity day at Winmarleigh Hall, near Preston into the comic.
Winmarleigh Hall is part of PGL who offered a day of activities as a prize from when we won the National Council for Voluntary Youth Services, (NCVYS) award.
We had no funding to travel to Winmarleigh Hall and approached Sport Trafford who agreed for us to spend our underspend of the North Trafford Sports Fund towards travel.
