Five Ipswich Stake Projects a Success!

On Saturday July 2nd 2011, 7 units of the Ipswich Stake gathered in 5 different locations to carry out Helping Hands projects across the Stake. 343 members collectively dedicated 1235 voluntary hours across the day to serve in the local community.
In Colchester, Gosbecks Primary School's foundation class area received a complete makeover; In Bury, Northcourt Care Home's gardens were cleared, tidied and areas replanted; In Ipswich over 100 Mental Health Service users and their families and friends were provided with a fun day and barbecue; In Chelmsford, the Galleywood Heritage Center was revisited for painting and maintenance work (see original project in 2009 below); And finally, Maldon members worked at the Chelmer Valley Nature Reserve to manage woodland areas, cutting back shrubs and resurfacing footpaths.

Photo's and personal experiences to follow soon:-)
