We are happy and proud to say that we have made it this far, yes we have. It has been a great journey and the future is bright and positive.
How We Got Started
The Club was founded in September 2018 as a meeting point for those who needed help with basic reading and writing skills. We reached out in the community to help those who were homeless, rough sleepers, refugees, asylum seekers and those with Visa issues in Coventry and the surrounding Cities and Towns of the West midlands County.
Funding and Projects
As we expanded we reached out to other organisations to partner and develop our projects. As a result of that campaign our Club was awarded funding in March 2019 by Mifriendly Cities.
Thanks to the funding, we were able to Develop and Expand our activities to reach out to the community in Coventry and beyond. Some of the projects are mentioned below
- Develop our Radio Station
- Provide online sessions for fitness during lockdown
- Buy necessary equipment
- Provide refreshment and transport for volunteers, members and guests
Events and Workshops
We held and sponsored a number of workshops in Coventry to engage and network within the community. The workshops were well attended, including representatives from different organisations such as AGE UK, Punjabi Writers Association, Positive Youth Foundation, Positive Images Festival, Earth Centre, Lions Club and more
Thanks to our Video Book reviews, a number of authors contacted us and requested a session to present their books to the Book Club. One particualr Author was so pleased with our Review of his book that he sent us a number of copies from America
Once again thanks to our campaign of reaching out within the community we have been apporached a by a number of individuals, libraries, authors and organisations who have donated a large amount of books in support of our campaigns and ongoing projects.
