Christmas, for some, is a time of giving. If you want to donate to a local charity knowing that 100% of your donation will go directly to supporting refugees and asylum seekers, please consider donating to Meeting Point! Link to how to do so is below:
What a fabulous day we had last Saturday at HEART Centre Apple Day in Headingley! We sold Women’s Groups items including ‘wax clingers’. knitted items, banana bread made with Apple Butter and handmade sewn and crochet products and raised £255! All profits will go towards bus fares to get destitute women here to benefit from our services. Our next stall will be on 1 December in Armley – just in time for Christmas shopping!
Please remember we are closed on Monday 27th August because of the Bank Holiday. Normal drop-in and groups will recommence on Monday 3rd September. Thanks!
The drop-in will run 3-5pm during the school holidays but will include all usual service provision.
English classes will close for August.
The community of Armley came together on Saturday 7th July to celebrate 15 years of Meeting Point. The staff and volunteers opened the doors to the local community with a BBQ, refreshments, live music, DJ, singing, dancing and facepainting. There was also the opportunity to purchase items made by the very talented Women’s Group, find out about the partners working with Meeting Point, learn a new language and take part in the Seagulls community mosaic project. Local councillors, Alison Lowe and James McKenna also visited to show their support of the team. Most of the food and equipment used was donated, including produce from Tesco stores in Bramley and Armley and Costco wholesalers. Thank you to all who attended, donated and volunteered to make the event such a success!
