The Arts and Crafts group meet fortnightly to socialise and do something creative. They are a group of people with memory problems who don’t get much opportunity to socialise and are at risk of loneliness and isolation. We would love to take them for a carvery, so that they have the chance to do something that most of us take for granted – a nice lunch with their friends.Ref: COW116

Our drivers are currently going through first aid and defibrillator training, therefore we require defibrillators on our two buses which will improve the care and safety of our passengers.Ref: COW105
Ladies Who Lunch is a group for people with mental health conditions and dementia who are socially isolated. They meet twice a month in a Church Hall for lunch, quizzes and games.

Supported by volunteers, the Baking Group is a small group attended by people with memory problems. The group meet once a month to make simple recipes and reminisce.

The Friendship Group would like to take their members for a bird of prey experience with the Wolds Way Owl Trust. The group is for adults with Learning Disabilities, some of whom are socially isolated. This trip would allow members to try something completely new and exciting that otherwise, they would not have the opportunity to experience.
We would love funding for the Continuum Christmas meal for clients. There are 16 clients and we will be taking them to the Goodfellowship Inn on Cottingham Road. If you could contribute anything towards we would be most grateful as this was previously funded in the past.Ref: COW63
