Northern Soul Kitchen:
They are a collaborative community space in which they take unsold, yet edible food from supermarkets, local shops and households to create affordable and balanced meals for all.
The food is offered on a Pay-As-You-Feel (PAYF) basis meaning people can pay what they think the food is worth, donate whatever amount they can afford or even volunteer their time and skills to pay for a meal – all have their value.
In this way, the café will be a place for everyone. We think everyone should have access to healthy food and a friendly environment in which to enjoy it.
They will also be offering workshops where people can learn more about reducing food waste in their own homes and how to get the most out of shopping on a budget. In this way, we will empower and educate people within the community to reduce their own food waste and help to destigmatise intercepted food.
Berwick Rangers Community Foundation:
In addition to providing coaching opportunities to local children and schools, the Foundation also invites local schools and youth groups to attend Shielfield Park for a first-team match and stadium tour completely free of charge.
The Foundation also provides opportunity for the wider community, spearheading projects such as the production of a ‘Reminiscence Book”; a project to be undertaken by the club’s programme team, and carried out in consultation with the Alzheimer’s Society and Football Memories.
