Busy times at CTC…

We’ve had a very busy few days here at CTC and the Abbey Community Centre.  Last week saw another trip for our CHAPS men’s group who travelled round London using every method of transport available to them!  See what fun they had despite menacing looking clouds in the background!

On Friday there was a Winter Warmer event at the community centre where Karin did us proud with a beautiful Swedish spread of cakes and sandwiches. Take a look……

IMG_6972The very next Day was our busiest EVER Saturday Club with over 80 people attending.  As you can see from the photos we had queues stretching round the hall for lunch!  As usual North London Cares volunteers provided the lunch which was a delicious vegetarian Indian curry with rice.  Our thanks go to them for managing to feed many more people than we were expecting!  We must also give special thanks to Prabhat who stepped in and whipped up a dessert for at least 90 people when our dessert plans went awry!! Thanks also to all the other hard working volunteers who helped make the day such a success including Kanchun, Karin, Tanya, Ben, Barbara, ‘Disco Dave’ and many others.  Next Saturday club will be a Christmas themed one on 7th of December but this will be an ‘invitation only’ Saturday Club since we can’t afford or manage to cater for ever increasing numbers of visitors!  In the New Year when our Lottery funding runs out we will have to re-assess Saturday Club and see how we can continue to run this very successful event without current funding.  Watch this space for developments and in the meantime, enjoy the photos!
