Activities update by Chris

Summer is taking it’s time in coming except for the few days we have had, hope you are all making the most of the nice weather when it appears.

At East London Vision we have so many exciting activities happening at the moment we have beginners cookery taking place, walks, gentle exercise classes, yoga, dance and bowls  it’s all happening.  These activities have been made possible by Healthier Neighbourhood grant from Hackney Council, Get Moving grant through the Mayor’s Office and Motivate East.

One group visited  Tate Britain we had a guided tour and was allowed to touch some of the sculptures and the Tracey Emin’s My Bed was described in detail.  Everyone had a great day and enjoyed themselves followed by having lunch in the grounds.

Another successful quiz night took place for Beyond Barriers in Tower Hamlets.  The quiz was challenging and it was a great night everyone enjoyed having the opportunity to have fun, to meet and socialise and at the same time raise money for the group.
