So much has been happening in Route 81 since returning from the Easter break
We have a new guitar club on Fridays , prepared young people for moving on to Hermitage from primary school (in parnership with young carers) and raised £350 making cookies to feed 700 children through mary's meals. As well as fun in the hub on Fridays.
We also held a fantastic fund raiser with Centre 81 raising £250 towards our summer programme.
Check the route 81 page to see the summer programme.
If you have volunteered for 10+ hours look out for your invite to the AWARDS night.
Raise some dough
Our young people having a great time in the kitchen learning to bake cookies and selling them to raise money for Mary's meals.
9 young people are making cookies throughout May to fundraise to buy meals for children in 18 of the poorest countries in the world through the Mary’s meals feeding programme - helping children on the ladder out of poverty by providing one meal a day within schools.
Cookies are a minimum donation of 50pence and by buying just one you will feed 5 children a school meal or alternatively feed 1 child for 5 days! Imagine if you bought 2!
Donations of flour, eggs, caster sugar, butter are welcome….thankyou to the individuals who have already donated and to Morrisons Helensburgh for their donation shown in photo below.
Next week we are making chocolate chip cookie and cherry cookies. Following week lemon cookies and white chocolate chip….we have a wee disclaimer….we had a test run…..your cookie may taste like a biscuit
but it’s all about the effort! We will be pro’s soon!
