Due to lockdown Trinjan put our National lottery funded Bhangra project on hold, and also stopped our weekly table tennis sessions. However, in the interim we have started online social meetings to keep our members connected via weekly video calls instead. The meetings have been incredibly popular with great turnouts. We’ve all loved being able to catch-up with each other, and also share our creative and culinary skills. The cooking segments have been especially popular of course! There have been a wide variety of recipes shared each week. These recipes are also being periodically posted on this website, and we’re also planning to have a recipe challenge to raise further funds for the NHS. Gardening tips have been another favourite topic that motivated many members to start growing their own herbs and vegetables.
With the generous donations from our members and their friends Trinjan have managed to raise £2510 for the NHS to date.
We are also exploring other ways of raising funds and supporting the NHS during this difficult time. One possible idea is to get local community and charity organisations to participate in an online talent competition. All ideas and suggestions are welcome – however ambitious!
In the meantime, please continue to watch this space and be ready to participate to support our NHS. And as ever, thank you for your continued support.
