In recent weeks staff at CLARE CIC have been delighted to continue working with Kelly Molloy and colleagues at Wee Chicks CIC on an intergenerational project. Unfortunately due to the pandemic our plans to bring older people and children together to work on joint activities have been impossible but with some creativity we’ve still been able to do some valuable work. Through funding from the Soil Association the children at Wee Chicks have been supported to learn about food and nutrition and have been making a number of different healthy soups and also pancakes and scones. In turn bulk batches of soup have been made for and delivered to CLARE service users alongside some recipe packs. Some of the children have also been writing to their older neighbours. When we deliver the packs to our service users this provides a really valuable opportunity for the Clare team to connect and engage and to provide support. Pictured below are Kelly Molloy from Wee Chicks and Natasha Corscadden from CLARE putting packs together and Mr John Hall, one of our service users receiving his pack.
