Sewing to Sustain

2020 was hard. So much to contend with and yet so much to be grateful for. We are emerging on the other side. Yes we were lucky to receive some emergency funding and thankfully the emergency is now over. Back to ‘normal’ business means an endless stream of funding applications with less chance of success than ever before as huge numbers of us compete for limited resources. We want to use what limited capacity and time we have differently.

Introducing Sewing to Sustain: our latest project. We spent the month of May piloting a bright idea

Here is our Press release:

In a short space of time, we perfected our production line: cutting; pinning; ironing; sewing; packaging

Join us for the Launch: Friday 28th May

THINGS ARE LOOKING UP

-Good day to everyone. We are coming to the end of the month, which means we can only start manifesting how great we would like next month to be!

-What we mean by things are looking up is, the Prime Minister has finally set dates for when we can return to our normal life, now we understand to some people it may seem a bit tedious as the rules have changed so much since the first lockdown but at least it’s a start!

What we also don’t understand is our mindset subconsciously is what we attract, sometimes it may not be intentional but what you manifest, the universe makes happen in your normal day to day life. We completely understand given the current circumstances that it is hard not to have the odd negative thought here and there, it’s only normal as we are all human beings with feelings! But what we mustn’t do is endure in those thoughts. We can completely understand how anxiety has affected a lot of people in this difficult time and even before, but we could argue now more than ever. We would like anyone who suffers with anxiety to allow themselves to think about the things you love the most, think about the fact that you must be special to have received the gift of life. Believe that you’re trying your best for those that you love and care for and most importantly yourself, even when it may not feel like so. Trust that better days are definitely coming, your prayers get answered in ways that you would never expect. To try and keep you on track and on the road to a more positive aspect of life we at Tell It started a Movements and Meditation class. You can attend this class via Zoom every Monday from 11:30am-12:30pm. Remember, try to stay calm, count your blessings and most importantly BREATHE!

The Law Of Attraction

We at Tell It strongly believe in the Law Of Attraction and that’s why we would like to share some ways that can help you block out any negatives thoughts you may have or are currently experiencing through this pandemic.

We would like to start by saying, just like the metaphor “you are what you eat” it also applies to “what you think is what you become”. What we as humans continuously do is put our sleeves down for either not doing enough, not trying hard enough or are just feeling hopeless. What is happening currently is completely out of our control and even if you may not feel like you’re trying your best, you’re doing your best within your means.

Completely flip the script! If you’re someone who was used to working 24/7 with barely anytime to yourself there must be some things in your home you may want to make changes to or a book you’ve been meaning to read, look at this as an opportunity, a break. Of course this pandemic is absolutely our reality but make it a reality you can benefit from when we are allowed to get back to our normal lives. Think about all the things you’ve spoken on before lockdown and now it’s time to put the Law Of Attraction to work. Manifest exactly what you’d like to accomplish, achieve, do or where you’d like to visit when we are allowed back to our normal lives and I assure you, maye not exactly in the way you’d expect but the universe is bound to make it happen!

ENJOY YOUR NEW MONTH OF MAINFESTING THE LAW OF ATTRACTION!

LOCKDOWN – LIFE CONTINUES…

Welcome to 2021

What a way to begin the new year as ‘lockdown life’ continues. Our work is important, our community is important and we are doing all we can to help people stay connected, this is important. In addition to helping out and supporting where possible, we are running three key projects as follows:

The Parents Space continued… As you know we have had to suspend the weekly Drop Ins to our community hub however, are still able to see individuals BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. This service is on a Monday afternoon between 1.3 0 – 4.30pm and is aimed at people who need face to face support with formal correspondence; housing; education & parenting etc. We are trialing an online Drop-In. Get in touch if you would like the link to join. This project is funded through:

For those of us who remain indoors, we have started a weekly Movement & Medi session: Mondays 11.30 – 12.30pm. Feedback to date has been great. It breaks the monotony of the long weekends and sets us up for the week ahead. Email contact details are on the flyer or you can contact us via this site and we will send you the zoom link to join. Which brings me to ask – are you OK with the Zoom app? Have you used it? Would you like any support to join the session: An old fashion email will do – let us know if you would like a hand Zooming.

Want to join us? Ask for the Zoom link

Would you like to continue improving your English?

The ESOL Home Learning Project has been running for a few months now and is proving a welcome addition to ‘lockdown life’ for many.

Whilst our community hub remains closed for group activity, we are able to facilitate the ‘Pass and Collect system. Just let us have an idea of the time you will be here and we will have your Home Learning Pack ready for collection. All we ask is that you practice ‘social distancing’ in the event there is another person here at that time. We expect you to pass and collect as part of your permitted exercise or walk.

We appreciate not everyone is able to leave their home for the permitted exercise and ask that you get in touch if you would like Home Learning Packs delivered to your home.

Stay Home, Stay Safe, Stay Connected

As I write this, we’re now in our forth week of ‘Lockdown’. We have all been asked to stay at home and only go out for essentials such as food, medication and exercise. This is indeed a trying time for us all. Our regular face to face meetings, classes and workshops in our community space have ground to a halt. This has not stopped us continuing our work in the community.

We believe we must find the positive where we can and today has been a lovely day. The sun was shining as we started the day with a wonderful Meditation session. Our first week we had four participants, this morning there was a full house as 13 of us showed up to take part in the online session via Zoom. Big thanks to Sis Aamasade for leading the meditation.

Keeping the Connection

Today the Tell It Family connected and we will keep this connection going.

I know some people are finding things hard and here at Tell It we want to be of service where we can. If you need help with anything from food supplies and paperwork to toys and activities for all the family, GET IN TOUCH NOW.

I’ll be hosting an online Drop-In session on Mondays between 2 -4pm. Please get in touch if you would like the link to join us on Mondays @ the online Drop-In or if you would like to join us for our Well Being Wednesdays online Meditation sessions at 11.30am. Stay safe & well.
