Community Matters

We are delighted to be chosen as one of the John Lewis charities through their Community Matters scheme. The Living Well Project is one of three local causes that will benefit from a share of £3000.

So next time you’re having your fly cup in John Lewis be sure to ask for a token and look out for the Community Matters box and pop your token in our slot.

It’s situated beside the cafe on the top floor.

All funds raised from the collections will be split between AFCCT and the nominated charities at the end of the 2018/19 season.

Support us at the Co-op

You may know that we are one of the Co-op’s chosen charities for 2017/2018. At no cost to yourself, if you link your Co-op card to The Living Well Project, we then get 1% of your spend for our funds.

If you don’t have a Co-op card, please consider getting one and link it to The Living Well Project as every little received really does help.

A big thank you to everyone who has already done this to help us carry on the invaluable work we do in local communities.

 

Musical Fun!

We are delighted to have received a grant from the ASDA Community Fund for over £600 towards musical instruments for our cafés.

We have now bought a wide variety of percussion instruments which have proved very popular at our cafés.

Jeanette Abel, our Café Team Leader, said “We are so grateful to Middleton Park for this amazing donation. Being able to provide fun and stimulating musical entertainment at all our cafés is fantastic and always has a great response from those who attend. Donations such as these are essential to allowing us to continue the great work we do.”
