When: 4th – 10th October 2014
SIFA Fireside will be launching Health and Homelessness Week on Saturday 4th October.
Designed to raise awareness of the issues homeless people face with physical and mental health, the week also wants to encourage people to consider their own, or a friend’s, well being.
Starting with a quiz and raffle at Aston University on the Tuesday 7th October, charity supporters can win some fab prizes and even an iPad! A lunch at SIFA Fireside on Friday 10th October will round out the week with the handing out of harvest festival donations.
There are many ways in which you can support the Digbeth-based charity, but perhaps the most fun is by baking! Taking advantage of the excitement surrounding the Great British Bake Off, and the fact that making and eating cake is scientifically proven to be good for you*, SIFA Fireside has created a fundraising pack which includes some tasty recipes.
Taking time out to bake a cake can help your own well being, but by selling that cake (and sharing the calories) you can raise some much-needed funds for SIFA Fireside to continue their excellent work. The fundraising pack also comes with some top tips about how to approach a conversation with someone you care about, as well as how to look after your own well being.
