From cake baking and sausage sizzling to running in a local marathon, we have a lot going on!

SCRAPSTORE – Currently we are excited to be launching a new scrapstore for Frome – 3 pop up events took place in 2021 with support from Bristol Childrens Scrapstore.. The Pod is now preparing to run Scrapstore’s independently and we have our first scrapstore on the 10th May 2022 from 2-5.30pm in the Cheese & Grain.

JAMM – following the launch of talking cafes in lockdown the charity now runs monthly Just a Monday meetup sessions’ for Parent Carers from 10am -12pm, please Contact us for upcoming dates.

The charity works with local partners to ensure that families know about local opportunities and initiatives. Although some of these activities do have a fundraising element the focus is on supporting and encouraging Young People, Families and Friends to take part in community activities under the umbrella of The Pod, building confidence, improving life skills and a sense of emotional well-being.

Previous activities have included;
• Children’s festival – This is an annual event that sees families running a cake decorating stall, a sticky, messy stall but a favourite for the little people attending the festival!
• Lions fete, Spin the wheel to win a prize, game designed by the children at youth club
• Pod Squad – our annual involvement in a local marathon event sees Pod families and friends taking part, boosting their self esteem and physical wellbeing.
• Charity Bingo.
• Diversity Day – An interactive information stall focused on improving awareness of Disability within the community.

We welcome new ideas on how we can get involved in community activities.
