Love is in the air……or is it chocolate?

Posted by GIFT admin on Feb 28, 2013 in GIFT

Lent, Chocolate and Love were the 3 categories for Steve Lowe’s own version of that well loved (or hated?) game ‘Pictionary’. Teams came up with a word in each category for the other teams to draw for their team mates. Try drawing the word “Yum!” The next session on Tue 12th March will be the last one until after Easter. This will be the last chance to get your Cadbury World money in before the trip on Saturday 16th. We do have a couple more children on a waiting list now so do please let us know straight away if you can’t come so we can offer them a place on the minibus. Jane Evans.


The World’s Largest Pancake

Posted by GIFT admin on Feb 23, 2013 in GIFT

Apparently, the world’s largest pancake was 15 metres in diameter! Our pancakes at youth group certainly weren’t anywhere near that big but they were most definitely very tasty. We’re not sure how Steve Lowe managed to cook so many in such a short space of time – or even why he could bring himself to do it – but we are certainly glad he did! With various toppings including chopped fruit (the healthy option), squirty cream, chocolate buttons and a host of ‘squeezy’ items to choose from as well, it rounded off a great session that included a quiz based around facts on Lent and Shrove Tuesday devised by Steve Evans. The winning team consisted of Luis Saunders, George Wade, Sam Rawles and Charlie Reynolds – well done lads. As Fairtrade Fortnight runs from Monday 25th February to Sunday 10th March, we will be basing our session around Fairtrade on Tuesday. Don’t forget to let Jane have your money for Cadbury World and a current Consent Form if you haven’t already provided one. Jane Evans.


Logo Mania

Posted by GIFT admin on Feb 4, 2013 in GIFT

What do the following have in common?
An iced cake
A ring
A bracelet
A pair of socks
A pair of shorts
A video game
A magazine
….. have you worked it out yet?! They are, of course, all great ideas on how we can develop and perhaps even market our new GIFT logo. This session we had a lot of fun getting our creative juices flowing and designing products which could bear George Wade’s winning logo design. We liked them all and hope to see some of these great ideas (on paper) become a reality. Who knows, we may even be able to launch a GIFT range and raise some serious money for our charities. Keep your eyes on this blog for progress reports.

Next session we will be celebrating Shrove Tuesday, euphemistically termed pancake day (!) with freshly cooked pancakes and all the toppings. We will also have some pancake tossing races up and down the aisle. Should be yum and lots of fun! We shouldn’t forget that Valentine’s day is on Thursday 14th February, so we might even play a couple of rounds of blind date or take me out, in honour of Saint Valentine himself! We look forward to seeing you then.
