Charity News and New Venue



Hi everyone and thanks again for anyone who continues support the ethos and values of our charity Stepping Stone 2to.


I am sorry I don’t post as much as I would like but my life is very busy with lots of extracurricular stuff, and I don’t always have the time.

I just wanted to update on what has been happening of late, with the recipients, volunteers, and the day-to-day operational activities.


After the sad loss of our beautiful founder member Raymond, to date we have still not been informed of where he has been laid to rest. This has caused us all a great deal of sadness, and after the misinformation around the funeral arrangements, only serves to mar the passing of Raymond. We hope to find out soon. - Core Founder Member

We have now relocated to Northside Community Centre in Workington, and begin our use of the aforementioned on the 5th of July 2017, from 10am until 4pm every Wednesday. Please feel free to pop along and see us all if you wish, there will always be a warm welcome, a cuppa, and a packet of XL crisps if you are lucky enough to get there before Tra and I!!! - Northside Community Centre Website


Our Health and Wellbeing sessions continue to bear fruit for all the recipients, and to date two participants have lost almost 9 stones in weight between them, have become more flexible, their body shapes are now changing for the better, and they are able to recognise these changes themselves.

Regular reviews and weight checks, chart this progress and records of this are kept for self-evaluations, service verification, charity effectiveness, and statutory service summative assessments. - Fitness Stories


Another service recipient has now got back on track with Tra working on her self-image and esteem, and thanks to Tras skilled and diligent persistence, coupled with the recipient’s fortitude, a further step has been taken. This step involved picking up where they both left off, due to a lack of interagency support, by once more shopping for items of clothing the recipient chose, through informed choice. A beautiful outfit was chosen. Result!


We have also held personal interviews with recipients and volunteers, to assess and evaluate both delivery, and personal progressions. These interviews will be posted up on the blog soon, and let us know what you think please. We are very happy with the progress made, and Tra is now turning into, Lara Croft meets Boudicca!


That’s all for now but I feel sure I will be back soon with more tales from the SS2to adventure!!



Be well. Harry.
