It has been a great week at the BHP with a lot of folks using our facilities. The holiday club went really well – reports will follow once the leaders have caught their breath. The cafe was also extremely busy. The team were excellent and there was a great “feel” about the place and many thanks to the extra volunteers who stepped in this week to make things possible.
Scarlet Thread ladies group met for free haircuts, a go at Nail Art and a lot of laughs. Meanwhile, Kingdom Kidz Club collected food for the Food Bank with their Harvest Focus. Finally, one of our long term volunteers has got a job – that is great news!
Week commencing 25th October sees BHP playing host to a holiday club where up to 50 kids from Brierley Hill Primary School are really looking forward to an action packed week, with Puppets, Mr FX and many other activities. We expect this week to be a great confidence builder for all involved. Watch this space for a report on the week.
A helper at Community Food Bingo at BHP has helped raise nearly a thousand pounds to help a client with family funeral costs. Food Bingo runs once a fortnight, when new friendships are formed and a good time is had by all. We are proud of our great band of helpers and if you want to know more about this, check the link from the BHP timetable.
THANK YOU to everyone who attended or gave (Lots of you contributed to the auction) to the BIG event on Friday night (24th Sept)!! It was a massive success with so many positive stories and comments.
140 people attended the David Lloyd gym in B.Hill for a packed night of dance (Band were excellent), a quiz, mcing from Marcus & FX (BHP Mic check) and a great auction conducted by Ian Robinson!! I would like to thank Lynda Methuen for all her support and hard work to make this night happen, and also Sue Whitehouse who sorted out most of the auction prizes, THANK YOU!!!
So far that night has raised over £3k, so with expenditure we are looking at making £2.5K, thank you all so much what an effort!!

There is restructuring taking place at BHP and part of that is to appoint a new project worker. It is with great pleasure that we can announce to you all that after publishing the job, short listing and then undertaking interviews ANDREA HALL has been appointed as the new project worker to work alongside Stacey and all the volunteers. Andrea has been at the project for over a year now as a full time volunteer so is very much involved already, and will be able to hit the ground running !!! Well done Andrea!!!
