Harborough Mail VASL Blogs

The Harborough Mail prints a blog every fortnight which is written by someone with a connection with VASL, always with an interest in the community. Often people connected with our project contribute.

Community Champions Calendar

The Community Champions project has produced a project calendar for 2019, 2020 and 2021
These calendars tell the story of our project progress in the previous year. For each month there is a photo from a project event, a quote from a client, volunteer or partner and explanatory statement.
We distribute these to our project community (clients, volunteers and community partner organisations) as a useful tool , but also as a memory of the journey we have been on, and the fun and learning we have had on the way.
The current one illustrates our response to the pandemic.
The calendar is a visual celebration of our growing community.
It’s amazing where these calendars end up – we know one is hung at the Befriending Networks office in Edingburgh , another is at the National Lottery Community Fund office in Birmingham and one of our MPs takes one to London.
