Beard Employees Working with TVP and Nasio Trust 24 Jan 2017
Beard Employees Working with TVP and Nasio TrustAlan Beard stated that he had met Dan Mew of African-Adventures.co.uk concerning the possibility of sending young members of the company to Africa, as Doug Gray experienced a few years ago, to perform building work. The literature provided details of a scheme that it had built in the past but it now needed rebuilding due to inadequate piling. This would be questioned as the Foundation Committee would need to be satisfied that building would be of a permanent nature. Alan stated that he had spoken to several younger members of the company on this project. Keiran Tiller had expressed an interest, James Forster stated he would also like to find more about it and said that the same might apply to Lee McGovern. It was suggested that the leaders of the team should go as a pair. It was agreed that he, James, Kieran and Doug should meet Dan Mew and investigate further. It was their practice also at the same time to send a team of young people approved by Thames Valley Police to go to Kenya as a team. It was suggested that they would have two weeks for the complete trip. The cost was normally about £2,000 per person. Beard employees would be expected to raise £1,000 each and the the the the second £1,000 would be provided by the Foundation. second £1,000 would be provided by the Foundation. second £1,000 would be provided by the Foundation. second £1,000 would be provided by the Foundation. It was suggested that one week would be taken as annual holiday entitlement and one week would be looked on as education. It was also suggested that the fortnight should take place in May 2017 before the start of the summer school work in the business. We would need to ensure that when these employees returned to England, they shared their experiences with other Beard employees and they continue to work for the company for a reasonable period. Issue was raised of required level on involvement from charities “responsible adults”. Confirmation from charity was required on whether Beard staff would be allowed to go at all/if so in what capacity. It was suggested this could be discussed at a follow up meeting with the charity. Jayne stated that this kind of activity was supported by the Thames Valley Trust. It was agreed to make a donation of £1,000 to Nasio Trust to help fund continuing support of young people from difficult background when they return from Africa.
Community Market 27 May 2016
East Oxford Farmers' and Community Market is a thriving community resource, delivering a weekly Saturday market at East Oxford primary School with an average of 18 weekly stalls visited by over 600 local people each week. The market is managed largely by volunteers, and has been set up by and for the community. We are celebrating our tenth anniversary this year, and our aim in doing so is to strengthen our links with the school and the local community it serves. The school is at the heart of an ethnically diverse area, with one-third of residents from an ethnic group other than White British. it serves a diverse community. 80% of its 295 pupils come from a very wide range of ethnic backgrounds. Around 70% of pupils speak English as an additional language and 30 different languages are spoken. The largest group of pupils in the school comes from a Pakistani heritage (26%). This diversity is not yet reflected within the market community despite the wide range of food stalls from different cultures. We see our tenth anniiversary as an opportunity to address that. We want to present pupils at the school with some of our market values: eating healthy local food; running local small businesses; using creative skills and managing house-hold finances. We plan to: - run key stage related market themed activities. The paid facilitator will bring in crates of market wares and pupils will role play different market activities, developing their maths and english skills. The market's tenth anniversary celebrations will be introduced in the second session: younger pupils will make triangles of bunting using creative techniques (we need to buy craft materials) whilst older pupils will design celebratory mugs for the markets cafe. - designs will be judged by community members at a special showcase market day in June 2016. The winning designs will be printed onto 72 mugs (bought out of the grant to replace the existing mismatching and chipped mugs used for the pop up cafe. The winning designs will feature on posters and other promotional materials leading up to the tenth anniversary market in September 2016. The press and local radio will be involved in the story of the flourishing market and the pupils work to help with the celebrations. -the tenth anniversary market day int he autumn will be a celebration for the whole community. This will be a bumper market that will need publicity, with an opportunity for the school and the parents to run their own stalls. There will be music and decor including the pupils bunting. All the families of competition entrants will get free tea (served in the new mugs), juice and a slice of anniversary cake (provided from the grant). The pupils who created the winning designs will be presented with certificates, their own mugs and a basked of market goodies. -stallholder stories will be showcased throughout, as good news stories for the community and the media, and as inspiration for the pupils. Without the requested funding, we can run a celebratory tenth anniversary market but none of the engagement and publicity activities. By focusing our development around the market celebrations we provide an opportunity to reinvigorate and integrate the market and school community for the next ten years.
Underground Water Pipe 14 Nov 2016
The water supply at the hall has slowed considerably due to very old iron pipes having corroded. This will require a trench to be dug to replace original pipe running alongside the building under the parking area, because currently the situation is such that there is too much sediment in the water for safe drinking. A new underground pipe will allow a proper flow of water to the building.
Food Hygiene Training 27 May 2016
We would train ten volunteers in Food hygiene. Once trained, we can provide a range of healthy food for at least 100 older and lonely members of our community. We will develop our Wednesday Call-in Cafe to include nutritious breakfast food and wholesome snacks to accompany coffee. As part of our programme of social activities (Monday and Friday evenings) we will include a programme of social meals and conversation nights. We will set a restaurant environment for our Friends with volunteer hosts on each table. The hosts will encourage and support Friends to participate in the conversations. Alongside loneliness, 80% of Friends are living in poverty. This means that they are often unable to afford a healthy and nutritional meal. Furthermore, as they have no one to cook for, many of our friends have told us that they eat sandwiches and cheap (usually unhealthy) snack food. Observations by our staff and volunteers at Wednesday Call-in Cafe have shown that the coffee and cake our Friends are served is the first meal of the day for many. We want to create an opportunity where our Friends are able to have warm and nutritious food.
Website Restructure and Upgrade 27 May 2016
We see restructure and upgrade of the Experience Chipping Norton website as essential for the wellbeing and growth of our community organisation. It started life in 2013 as a humble and basic site seeking to draw together various community and business ventures in a holistic and socially inclusive way. The content rich website now forms the centre of Chipping Norton's digital hub, and has become first port of call for residents, visitors and businesses searching online for local shopping and parking information, local attractions, places to eat, drink and stay, charity functions, local community groups and events - along with business profiles, videos and news. As a purely voluntary group, we manage to cover most areas of expertise ourselves, drawing on our members own skills and resources. Website repair and restructure, however, is such a specialist area we're not able to cover it ourselves and need to pay a professional to get a proper job done. 1. repair needed to maintain site stability. Since the site was created, we have been managing it ourselves the best we can, lacking funding for assistance. Because it has grown so quickly, however, and is in need of multiple updates it has become increasingly unstable. We are worried about the site crashing if we add further content, so have reached an impasse. We do not have the expertise to attempt the upgrades ourselves. 2. Business, Accommodation and Where to eat directories are no longer function. We need to upgrade the site's original business and accommodation directories, to give all our town businesses the prominence they need and deserve. Our existing business and accommodation directories are severely lacking in functionality and not compatible with the format of our new content. 3. We are determined to build on our 2015 #GBHighSt success. Chipping Norton was proud runner up in the market Town category of the 2015 Great British High street awards with a submission created and campaign managed by ECN. We enjoyed great support from our new Midcounties Co-op supermarket whose manager Adam Quinton allowed us to set up a temporary polling booth at the front of their premises. Had we won, Chipping Norton would have received £10,000 in prize money and comprehensive Google training for key town businesses - giving ECN and our town a huge business boost, resources to fund future community projects and a national profile attracting visitors from across the UK. We're so proud of our achievements so far, but lost out to Yorkshire's Helmsley by about three points - largely because they rolled out a brand new website at the start of their campaign. We will be entering the #GBHighSt contest again this year with renewed vigour, and would love to enter with a strong, stable, business themed website which promotes our businesses in the way they deserve, also showcasing the terrific way they support our local charities: Dementia Friends and Rafiki Thabo Foundation. We take the promotion and protection of our town's residents and businesses very seriously, and have plenty of new projects planned for 2016. We don't want to see ECN's achievements jeopardised by website flaws and limitations - it is the centre of our digital hub - and would be immensely grateful for a grant to help us achieve our goals.
New volunteer recruitment 15 Sep 2016
Average cost to the charity of recruitment, training, resourcing and support for the first year of a volunteer is £768. We ask schools to contribute £420 towards this leaving a shortfall of £348. We would use this grant to cover this shortfall which would enable us to recruit 14 new reading helper volunteers.
Cowley Road Works Outreach 15 Sep 2016
Evaluation demonstrated that a lack of outreach and engagement throughout the year was negatively impacting CRW's outreach / delivery capabilities, causing reputational damage and stifling sustainability, social impact /benefit. CRW were unable to honour the full remit of activity listed within the charity's objectives due to this. .£5000 will cover the cost of two part time posts to be maintained throughout the year; Volunteer Engagement and Community Outreach; Both posts will work the equivalent of 2.5 days a month - where possible this will be topped up subject to project specific additional funding, whilst allowing a consistent presence and contact.
Dovecote Children & Families Project 23 Feb 2017
If successful the grant will be used to secure and expand the delivery of our oversubscribed inclusive, engaging, afterschool club from three sessions per week to four sessions per week. This will enable our project to support more vulnerable children to access good quality play experiences supporting them to enjoy good physical and mental health. For many project provides a focus point in which to build lasting friendships, for some a place to escape the daily tension and anxieties of family life. Grant will be used to cover salary costs and core running costs such as insurance, materials and equipment.
|Contained| 03 Jan 2017
Contained project focussed on changing perceptions of migration|Contained| is a multidisciplinary, collaborative project between researcher Marieke van Houte (Oxford University), Remco Heijmans (educational expert) and Justice in Motion, where the audience become the participants, rather than the spectators of the story. We will develop three different components based on diverse aspects of migration, and present these through various theatrical tools for maximum impact – invisible & immersive theatre, interactive installation, and physical theatre performance. This grant will support the delivery of this project, especially artistic costs. It will further pay for promotional material, evaluation and administrative costs, essential for a wide reach and effectiveness of this project.
