We work with other organisations to offer you more services
Partnership working is essential to us here at BHLC as it enables us to offer a wider range of services from organisations and people with particular areas of expertise. Below are some of our key partners.
The Alzheimer's Society
Every other Tuesday, the Alzheimer's Society leads a Singing for the Brain session at Brunswick Hub, from 10.15 - 11.45 am. Based around the principles of music therapy, these friendly sessions include vocal warm-ups and singing a wide variety of familiar and new songs. Dates are published in our monthly newsletter. For more information and about this and other services available locally, please visit the Alzheimer's Society website.
Community Veg Bags
Would you like a seasonal selection of affordable fresh vegetables and fruit each week, delivered to Brunswick Hub ready for you to collect? The bags always contain potatoes, onions of some type (brown, red, spring) and carrots, plus another two types of vegetable and two types of fruit. Prices are £3 for a small bag and £4.50 for a large one. The scheme runs on a ‘pay as you go’ basis, so you do not have to order a bag every week.
You can order and collect your Veg Bags from Brunswick Hub Reception – simply register for the service and give us a named empty carrier bag (cloth or long-life) together with your payment. Orders need to be placed by 12pm on a Tuesday and your delicious fruit and veg will arrive on Thursday of the same week.
Community Veg Bags is a local ‘not for profit’ organisation based at the Sydni Centre. All of the money from orders is used to bulk-buy fresh produce through a local greengrocer; volunteers then divide up and pack all the goodies.
