Elthorne Pride has been committed to ensuring that the sense of community spirit is not lost and in doing so commissioned local artist, Josh Moseley (The Bomb Factory Foundation), to design a virtual Quilt of Hope.
Curated by the team at Elthorne Pride, the Quilt of Hope is made up of multiple images of Elthorne Pride’s community events, volunteers, Covid-19 activities, local residents and places symbolised to evoke: Hope, Resilience and Inspiration – key attributes reflective of our Elthorne Pride community.
Elthorne Pride has carried out a lot of work to engage with its elderly residents. Including Lifestyle Tuesdays: Aimed at combating isolation for our 'more mature' residents. During lock down we also ensured that we maintained regular virtual activities such as bingo and quizzes
Elthorne Pride will be launching a number of new initiatives aimed at supporting young people to realise their potential whilst also making a valuable contribution their community. These will include skills development, mentoring and opportunities to makes links with other members of the Elthorne Pride community.
Elthorne Pride has been filming cookery videos and zoom sessions for residents during the pandemic.
Supporting enterprise has been identified as a really important way to improve the lives of residents. We recently launched Elthorne in the Market an initiative with Archway Market, which aims to help get business ideas off the ground with free advice and grants. We can also support you if you just want help in making that first step.
Every Year Elthorne Pride donates up to 100 hampers to local residents with the help of local volunteers.
