It’s time to come in from the cold and join Rocking Dog at the kennel for February’s creative huddle. Well that’s not strictly true because we’ll have landed in March! I am cooking with some lovely Young Carer’s on Wednesday so instead we’re meeting on Thursday 7-9pm. Please come along to talk gentle talk and eat delicious Rocking Dog cake. Get those fingers busy sewing, knitting, crocheting- whatever you fancy.

Donations into the big jolly teapot for Fine Cell Work, encouraging and supporting prison inmates to sew and embroider.

Rocking Dog would love to see you on Thursday and hope that the snow drifts aren’t so big that huddlers can’t get to the creative hub!

Have a great week and stay cosy.

Gold Stars For The Young Carers

Star Baker!, Rocking Dog

Star Baker!

Yes, definitely gold stars for the Young Carers. I had a lovely time in the kitchen with eight young budding culinary maestro’s yesterday. One trio made Chicken fajitas with a home made tomato and chilli salsa, together with wholemeal tortillas. Meanwhile another trio made some tasty Toulouse pork shortcut meatballs with roast sweet potato wedges. Finally, a very enthusiastic pair baked a peach filo pie in a very appropriate star shaped dish. Then chefs, staff and volunteers all came together to eat the feast. It was stupendous Young Carers- thank you.

The washing up fairy swished her magic wand and with goody bags in hand (containing all the ingredients for making a sugar free tomato sauce) the YC’s whisked themselves away to practice all they’d learnt.

Volunteering for over a year for Young Carers I can see just how vital the services are for these young folk and their families. The staff are so committed and the young ones benefit from knowing that they are absolutely not alone.

Gold stars to one and all!
