Groundwork have been very busy since the start of 2022.
A Tasty Vegan Recipe
Even though Veganuary has now passed, Caffi Cyfle has an easy vegan treat you can replicate at home any time of the year.
Vegan Raspberry flapjacks:
- 250g syrup
- 250g margarine
- 1kg oats
- 250g raspberry jam
- 175g frozen raspberries
Melt the margarine and syrup over a pan of hot water. Once melted, pour over the oats and mix. Add half the mix to a baking tray (lined with a baking sheet) and spread. Cover with the raspberry jam and pour the remaining oat mixture over. Top with the raspberries and bake at 190°C for 20 minutes.
Caffi Cyfle is part of the Groundwork North Wales group. You can find them in Alyn Waters Country Park and also on Brunswick Road, Buckley as part of Refurbs Repair and Reuse centre.
Pedal Power All Set for 2022
Pedal Power (Cycling 4 All), the all-ability cycling service, has now reopened at Alyn Waters Country Park. The service is open Wednesdays and Fridays from 9.30am-4pm in the winter. Pedal Power supports adults and children with disabilities to enjoy the fun and therapy of cycling . They hire out standard bikes and trikes.
The fantastic efforts to raise money for its survival have been very touching. Nigel Reader, a Pedal Power Trustee, is an excellent singer who regularly raises funds through CD sales and also Livestream performances on Facebook.
They recently had a genuinely kind donation from Wrexham residents Sheila and Mike Meadows, whose son Gareth has been coming to Pedal Power for many years. Gareth’s mum Sheila said, “I will be forever grateful for Pedal Power. It helped Gareth get his mobility back after lockdown. It also created hope for those who have struggled during the pandemic.”
Pedal Power believes everyone should enjoy the benefits of cycling, regardless of age or ability, and local support will ensure that it includes everyone. Please support Pedal Power this year by going to justgiving.com/c4a.
The Tesco Community Grant Scheme
Groundwork North Wales works as an enabler for the Tesco Community Grants scheme. The scheme is now open for applications from; not-for-profit organisations, community groups, or registered charities in North Wales, prioritising projects that provide food and support to young people.
Examples of eligible applications could be; a school needing to buy food for a children’s breakfast club, a voluntary organisation working with families to run a food bank or a charity supporting young people with specialist mental health advice.
Tesco Community Grants will select three projects/good causes that need extra help in your local area. When customers receive a blue token at checkout in any Tesco store, they can vote for their favourite by putting it in the Tesco Community Grants box.
