The Renewal Programme is delighted to announce that we have been awarded a grant by London Over the Border Council.  The grant will enable The Renewal Programme to run a new project aimed at helping local people in Manor Park learn how to eat and cook healthily.  The Grant is for running the programme for 3 years.  The project will cover things that matter to local people – such as helping people who only have access to a microwave to learn how to use it effectively and helping people understand how to improve their diabetes through changes to their diet. Other workshops will help people new to the UK learn how to cook with British ingredients or will focus on cooking on a budget.  It’s also expected the programme will help isolated and lonely people to come and make new friends.    Renewal Programme Chief Executive Ruth Bravery said, “A huge thank you to the London Over the Border Council for helping us support local people to achieve really positive changes in their lives.”
