Our Kitchen and Cookery Sessions 

 

          

 

Our bright, spacious and superbly-equipped kitchen offers clients the opportunity to get creative, from simple cakes and cookies through to full hot meals like Shepherd's Pie or Sweet & Sour Chicken! Clients are often inspired with new ideas and suggestions to try, thanks to our terrific volunteers, and our excellent range of recipe books.

 

Cookery is a popular activity here, and encourages clients of all abilities to work together as a team to create something really delicious (and frequently enjoyed by all at Headway!). Domestic skills can be re-learnt, and new ones taken on board. There's even the opportunity to have a go at simple online Food Safety courses (something that can be done in our I.T suite). 

 

Staff and volunteers are always on hand to support clients in our kitchen, and of course to ensure that all food hygiene, health and safety regulations are followed.

AGM success!

 

A huge thank you to all who attended our AGM last Friday. We were delighted to host 28 guests at our Irthlingborough Centre, ranging from trustees, staff and volunteers through to clients, families, supporters and town councillors. We thoroughly enjoyed giving the opportunity to reflect on our activities over the previous year. 

 

Information packs were provided and feedback so far suggests that attendees found the meeting informative, with good take-home value. 

 

Here's to another great year ahead for Headway East Northants!

 

Headway Music Group rock the charity fundraiser!

 

An amazing night was had by all at the fundraising concert on Saturday 6th October, featuring facilitator Freyja, deputy manager Jonny, and the Headway Music Group, raising an incredible £405 EACH for both Headway East Northants and the Cransley Hospice!

 

The guys all performed  with others to raise funds for both Headway East Northants and the Cransley Hospice and the night was incredibly well-supported, with the venue packed to the rafters! 

 

Well done to all involved, particularly to Freyja and partner Chris, who worked so hard to create such a professional gig, and of course, our amazing Headway clients for conquering their nerves and performing two songs LIVE!

 

 

 

 

Client Michael obtains Food Safety qualification! 

Headway East Northants client, Michael, last week successfully completed an online course in Food Safety for Catering, and as a result, is now Level 2-qualified in Food Handling. 

Michael enjoys both our cookery sessions and I.T here at Headway East Northants, so combining the two together was a win-win!

Huge congratulations to Michael on this terrific achievement!
