L4A is really excited to be one of the five organisations shortlisted in the Central East ITV region to compete for £50,000 in this years Peoples Project competition. This is being decided by a public vote online and we would very much like your vote!
We want to help ease the feelings of loneliness and isolation that older people in residential care can experience – and bring some of the outside world in to them. We could win £50,000 for our ‘Baking a Difference’ project; taking participative bread making into care homes and sheltered housing and involving the local community as well with regular ‘Bread and Conversation’ sessions.
We are going to be featured on the ITV Central 6pm News tonight, at some point between 6 and 6.30pm. (The film is also available to watch online here).
Voting is open now and runs through until Monday 30th April at 12 noon.
