M&S Make Every Moment Special  Marks and Spencer, Birstall staff was onsite last month to help upgrade our Active Play area. The lovely team painted and stained the climbing areas which had started to look a bit faded and built a jazzy walkway. They also built three sensory seating areas and contributed to the costs of the project. Thank you very much M&S! We hope to invite the team back later this year to join in with an intergenerational event where members of the local community will be invited to help fill the planters with sensory plants. The two benches and plants are funded by the Sir George Martin Trust.

Barchester’s Charitable Foundation Make BIG Difference  We would like to thank the Barchester’s Charitable Foundation for funding a canal cruise for our Young at Heart group clients this August. Clients and young volunteers from our SAY #iwill project will cruise along the Leeds Liverpool canal whilst taking in delightful scenery and enjoying some delicious food. We hope this intergenerational activity will encourage people of different age groups to engage and support each other in a lovely environment. 

No Limits! Project Gets Underway  The No Limits! project, funded by Bradford Council, got underway last month when SAY #iwill volunteers from the Sedbergh Centre visited project partners, Forget me not for a fun film night when they watched The Boss Baby on the big screen. At the end of the month, Forget me not clients visited our centre for a games night. This coming month’s activities include a Music Jam Night and a Potted Sports Session. If you would like to get involved as a Buddy Volunteer for this project then please contact Arnie at the Sedbergh Centre on 01274 679843. 

Good Citizens Awarded Certificates  Good Citizen Certificates were awarded to young volunteers last month for their contribution to our Great Get Together and Activity Leaflet campaigns as part of the SAY #iwill project. As well as giving something back to the community, our volunteers learn valuable skills to help them in life and their careers. If you would like to join the SAY #iwill project team then please contact Lucy on 01274 679843 or email

World Heart Rhythm Week  Last month we took part in World Heart Rhythm Week and raised awareness of arrhythmia (heart disorder) by displaying and distributing useful and potentially lifesaving information.
