Mindful Gifts CIC have given out over 150 skipping ropes to children who live in Walsall in the last couple of months. Part of the Walsall Children and Young People Healthy Weight Strategy, Mindful Gifts CIC have encouraged children to get active by skipping and having fun. There are still skipping ropes available for children who live in Walsall who walk to the Mindful Gifts CIC shop in Darlaston, subject to availability.
Simon Bamford loved is ‘This is Your Life Book’ we presented him with at our Mindful Gifts CIC Shop in Darlaston! Simon is an English film, television and stage actor. He is well known for playing the Butterball Cenobite in Hellraiser in 1987 and its sequel Hellbound: Hellraiser II in 1988. Today he was being filmed for a new film ‘Your are My Sunshine’ which is being shot at our shop.
On Mindful Gifts CIC’s new year’s honours list is Noddy Holder who opened our REWIND Vinyl Record shop in Darlaston Walsall in June 2019. Noddy came back to his home town to officially open our new vinyl record shop in Church Street, Darlaston. 100s of people turned out and Noddy signed records and other memorabilia which helped us to raise further funds for the good work we do for people with dementia at our Mindful Gifts CIC shop, next door but one.
Mindful Gifts CIC is a ‘not for profit’ organisation and any surplus that we make on our Ryder’s Annual is reinvested to support the great work we do for people with dementia. This can include doing talks in the community, raising awareness of dementia and reducing the stigma attached to it, visiting schools, and hosting visits to our shop from groups such as the Brownies.
