Wellbeing Day at Tiger

Wellbeing Day at Tiger

March 17th, 2023

Visitors started arriving early to enjoy our Wellbeing Day at Tiger Community Hub. By the end of the day the whole cafe space had become a little social with everyone making new friends.

Gill was busy all day showing and helping people make spring wreaths from donated greenery, fabric, ribbon, buttons and beads. Everyone spread out so there wasn’t a restriction on numbers and creativity flourished.

Chyrisse had a full list for the hand massages and managed to pamper everyone on the list during the 4 hours.

There were also off shoots of people enjoying some mindful colouring too.

We pulled together a wide range of flyers from community organisations signposting support and Sam from Victim Support manned the table and chatted to people about the range of wellbeing support available across Nottingham.

There was vegetable curry, bean chilli, carrot and coriander soup and toasties on the menu and we fed nearly 40 people with copious amounts of tea and coffee consumed through the day.

Everyone left with a smile, thanks for the great day and excited to come and visit again.

I also received a touching message afterwards from one of the attendees - “Just wanted to say how fabulous your space is. Sometimes you might not know what you have created. A safe space. It’s a small thing but not for me and X. It’s the first place I am beginning to call my son my son without explanation or judgement. That’s an amazing thing. And I was over the moon that he brought a couple of his friends down and left them comfortable in themselves. I’m telling you this because you need to know that some things cannot be measured by numbers or money. Rather not say it in earshot of X but thankyou and your people for having such a positive impact on our lives. Oh yes. And of course there’s the craft, food and getting out. Have a super weekend and never doubt the good you do.”

This says it all about why we opened Tiger Community Hub.

We were grateful to receive support to help us put on our Wellbeing Day from Nottingham City Council.
