Recovery College "Denim for Dementia" Event

We'd like to thank everyone so much for contributing to yesterday’s Denim for Dementia event and making it such a success, thanks to your generosity we raised an amazing £220 which will go towards college funds!

 
Lee from the Alzheimer’s Society will be picking up the collection boxes from me early next week and has promised to let me know how much we raised for the charity, so I will let you know as soon as I can.


Professional and not so professional photos are on our Facebook page, so please take a look :)smile emoticon

Thanks again!

First Donation to our Local Food Bank!

The Recovery College students are helping West Bromwich’s vulnerable by collecting goods for a local food bank.

On Wednesday 6th April an impressive collection of food was handed over to Keith Turner of West Bromwich Food Bank (WBFB). WBFB gives out food to residents of Sandwell who are in crisis and cannot afford to feed themselves or their family.

Expressing his gratitude to the College, Keith said, “We are really grateful to the college for their support and effort in helping the local community.”  

“The donation came out of the blue but it is very much welcomed and will soon be put to good use I am sure.”

The College plans to continue their 'At "TIN" ding Recovery College' food collection drive, which sees students donating a tin of food when they attend their course, and urges others around the Trust to contribute where they can by dropping items off at the College, Quayside House, Rounds Green Road, Oldbury B69 2DG. Longer term it is hoped other Trust sites will also have collection points.
