Happy New Year: Bring on 2020
Well, it really has been a lovely Christmas and this year we have accomplished so much. Set ourselves mini-challenges and hit them straight on. Its time to appreciate the little things.
2019 will be the year that we started reaching out more into our immediate areas, and started supporting Havering Mind.
We ran a half marathon, went to the Wheels and Wings event and ran a workshop where all the money went to Mind and we also supported the Chritsmas Havering Mind show where we handed out free presents to the children.
It’s the little things
The biggest achievement we have made with Mind actually hasn’t been about the money we have raised although we are really proud of that. What makes us truly happy is the Monthly Mind art class that we put on once a month. Mental health isn’t a joke and all ages from all walks of like come and join our class run by the lovely Shema. Every month they learn a craft or paint a picture. they get to use art materials all supplied by us.
The class generally decide what they want to do in the next class. they can help themselves to tea and coffee and have a good natter. When it comes down to it people don’t cherish the big things it’s the little things that make us happy. a warm home, a good meal and company. That’s what our workshops are about.
So have a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year. It’s been a good, but tough one. We hit some goals, lost some others (let’s not mention Inktober) but it really is all about the journey.
We all need to learn to appreciate the little things.
So we would like to take this opportunity to thank you. Thank you for shopping with us, tweeting, messaging, Facebooking and Instagramming us. If you ever Pin our images or save our Pinterest images then this really helps us raise our presence. We look forward to doing more in 2020 and to see you join us on the journey.
