Stepping Stone 2to Charity News Update
Welcome, received with gladness, admitted willingly, free to enjoy, kind reception.
Northside Community Centre, Stella and all her staff, and volunteers epitomise the above meaning of making all the people who attend, or just pop into the centre, welcome.
It’s taken us a little while to settle again after moving, and losing our lovely friend Raymond, but we now feel we can breathe again whilst pursuing our ethos in our new environment.
We also got some good news recently after a bid for funding compiled by Tra and I was successful. The application was submitted to the Cooperative society, who were seeking out organisations that were adding social benefit to the local communities in which they operated. They very kindly put their faith in what we do, and for that, we are very grateful indeed.
Jennifer is working through a very difficult time emotionally at present and has shown great strength, and fortitude in the face of what is, for her, another burden to carry. Once more, I am very proud of her.
Gary has also shown great strength, and fortitude in the face of very difficult times, he continues to push on. Top man Gary.
Lucy has struggled with a chest complaint and is awaiting consultation on her prognosis. Again as with others in her peer group, Lucy continues to push on regardless, and still finds the time to make us all laugh. So proud of her.
Nigel, after some issues with some weight gain continues to improve his fitness, and is now starting to upgrade his flat with new carpets, and curtains. Mark is going through next Monday, to assist in some preparation for redecoration, work which Mark enjoys, and has shown a flair for in the past.
Mark continues to make good progress in all areas of his fitness, and continues to make our sessions an absolute joy with his sense of fun.
Tra as ever continues to astound with her fitness and steely determination whenever the training gets tough. Her technical ability when executing the fighting drills is a joy to behold, and I often reflect on what she could have achieved as a fighter had she entered into my world many years ago. She would have been a most formidable opponent I am certain. Ask Mark!!
Be well and happy. Harry on behalf of Stepping Stone 2to 😊
