Saturday, 17th December - Eight Bells Newbury

Charity thing today was actually Thursday (baby has still not appeared so I am doing as much as I can in advance!)

Lovely coffee morning at St Nics was in aid of mental health charity Eight Bells which supports people affected by mental health issues. As well as the goodies in the pic, I also bought two pieces of shortbread which didn't make it home to be photographed.

As a member led organisation, there are great opportunities to get involved with the running of Eight Bells from cooking lunch to being part of the management board. We believe in empowering our members, this creates a great atmosphere within the centre; people feel part of a community. People aren't told what to do here rather they are involved in deciding how things are done.
