SPOTLIGHT ON ...

Support NoW ...


We are delighted to be one of the 3 projects chosen by Tesco for their Bags of Help, Blue Tokens scheme in Huntly.


Your tokens, placed in the Networks of Wellbeing Unit in Tesco's Huntly, can help to make it possible for us us to continue to deliver free of charge activities in community settings (community centre, schools and local care homes). 


Activities we currently provide are Chillin Women, Relaxation, Peer Support, Silver Singers, Marvellous Pussycats (a dementia support group), jogging groups, Mindfulness sessions, Bike Shack project, Craft Group, Counselling, AB54 etc. 

Remember - every token helps.

Now that the holidays are almost over we are delighted to let you know that Creative Connections, Relaxation and Chillin' Women will all be starting again in the first week in September. 


If you feel in the need of some relaxing time out, and to chat amongst friends, then come and join us at one (or all) of these groups. We would love to see you there.  

 

See pics for more information on dates, times and venue.

Here are the details of our next Mindfulness Taster session. 


The taster session and subsequent course will be led by a qualified Mindfulness teacher - Maria Perkins who is trained by the Mindfulness Association.

 

The course is funded, so places are free and open to all. People who are supporting others will take priority for the full course. It's not easy to 'keep on keeping on' when either caring for others, and/or front line working, on top of our own day-to-day personal and workplace stresses. 

 

Mindfulness can be helpful for this and many other things - as will be explained during the taster session. 

 

Attending the taster will give you a good idea of whether you would like to complete the course. There's no obligation to attend the full course by attending the taster. 

 

Please note that places are limited.  To book a space, or to find out more information, please contact us on 01466 793732.
