We believe your volunteering time is precious and we're here to help you make the most of it!
The Feel Good Making workshops include mindfulness techniques and well-being activities, giving you time to discover, find meaning and be mindful. Join us in the lovely Cambridgeshire town of St Neots from 10am to 3pm at Loves Farm House. The bright and airy studio is perfect for making and parking is free! Make a day of it - there are many great teashops for a slice of cake in the town afterwards with good shops and places to visit such as the Riverside Park and St Neots Museum.
The Enchanted Days event is held at Milton Country Park. You can find information and directions to the park here: http://www.miltoncountrypark.org/info/
Group sizes are small and friendly with only four families per workshop. Here's some things people have said about our workshops -
"I enjoyed meeting people and working within a group"
"Very enjoyable, friendly and relaxed"
"I would recommend as it's a wholesome experience where you get to be expressive through arts"
