Everyone is warmly invited to an Afternoon Tea Party being held at Jenner Court, Salter Street, Berkeley on Friday 15th July from 2pm-4pm. This special event is being organised by local community organisation World Jungle to celebrate the work of their ‘Full of Life’ project in Berkeley and Sharpness over the past few months. It is open to everyone to come and enjoy afternoon tea and cake with entertainment and some stalls to browse too.
The ‘Full of Life’ project which was supported by Gloucestershire County Council’s Community Chest Fund, focussed on improving the health and wellbeing of older people, helping people to stay active and feel connected in their community. Activities have included regular sessions held at venues across Berkeley and Sharpness, supporting existing clubs and service providers, together with offering training for volunteers around supporting older people to maintain their independence and stay active in their communities.
Fiona Campbell from World Jungle said:
“It has been a wonderful opportunity to be able to extend the ‘Full of Life’ project to support people living in and around Berkeley and Sharpness. We hope this event will bring together many of the people we have met along the way, including both those who have attended our events and sessions, together with volunteers who have got involved in supporting older people in our communities.”
The next volunteering training being run by World Jungle is with students from Rednock School in Dursley. Pupils will be given the opportunity to learn more about the real difference they can make to people’s lives through volunteering and be able to undertake visits and put in to practice what they cover on the course.
