Localgiving Magic Little Grants –  Friends MBSR 2021 IT Project

Localgiving Magic Little Grants – Friends MBSR 2021 IT Project

Localgiving (click here for more information) is working with People’s Postcode Lottery, a grant giving charity funded by players of People’s Postcode Lottery, to offer charitable organisations the opportunity to apply for 2000 grants of £500.

The Magic Little Grants Fund provides charitable organisations the opportunity to access funding to deliver a range of projects which fit one or more of the below funding themes:

  • Improving mental wellbeing
  • Enabling community participation in the arts
  • Preventing or reducing the impact of poverty
  • Supporting marginalised groups and promoting equality
  • Improving biodiversity and green spaces
  • Enabling participation in physical activity
  • Responding to the climate emergency and promoting sustainability
  • Increasing community access to outdoor space

Friends were successful in gaining £500 from local giving. In partnership with the NHS Friends of the Centre for Integrative Care and the Whiteinch Centre, this grant helped us to develop a Mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) online class for beginners.    With the support from the Whiteinch Centre who provided the IT training and support, along with the grant that allowed us to buy the equipment needed, Friends supported 5 individuals to get online and take part in the course.   The preparatory work has taken place and the online class will start on the 13th April 2021@8pm.  Watch this space for further classes and updates.

A call for help – The Friends need you!

A call for help – The Friends need you!

With so much work to be done during this difficult time to keep our members connected, we need to ensure we have a full and active committee.

We are therefore looking to our members to get more involved.  We currently have vacancies on the committee that we need to fill. If you might be interested, then please get in touch.

We can provide any training and support that you need. We can also have some of our meetings via zoom for those of us who may struggle to get along to the face-to-face meetings.

Please seriously consider getting involved either as an office bearer or a volunteer member on the committee. Without a full and committed committee we will be unable to take forward some of the key projects we have planned.

More importantly, we will be unable to fully represent and protect the good work of the Centre for Integrative Care that is so dear to all of our hearts.
