Many thanks to Health & Wellbeing Fund for their grant of £5,000, which has now been spent on waterproof walking boots and raincoats. This has allowed local refugees and asylum seekers and their families to stay dry and warm when participating in a walking group (‘Walk and talk goes hand in hand’), going to college […]
More refugees, asylum seekers and volunteers had a chance to try outdoor bowling for the first time on Tuesday 19th April. And they all loved it as it is something everyone can do and the bowling club had invested in more games. After the bowling we went to the Kindness Cafe for a warm, lovely […]
Spent another £966.24 on walking boots and raincoats for five families and two individuals so they can join our walking trips, be outdoor in all type of weather and still be dry and warm. Once again thanks to our funders and to individuals who donate money to Together We Grow. Without their support we could […]
Our walking group did a walk & talk from Hebden Bridge train station up to Old Chamber and Honesty Box, along Pinnacle lane, down by the river to Horsehold, where we could feed the lamb. From Horsehold we walked down to Beryl & Peter’s house to have lunch before taking the train. A lovely day […]

So a warm vegetarian lunch went down well with every one at the Kindness cafe. Hot coffees, teas and cholates also helped. Many […]
We are now starting matching local youth with young asylum seekers and refugees so they can practice English conversation and socialise together in one-to-one settings. We have for years done this for adults. The first young matching is working very well.
After months of waiting we are pleased that Together We Grow is now a registered charity. Our charity number is 1198500. As a result of this we also need to set up a new bank account.
What looked like well over a hundred people formed a living heart in the middle of the Piece Hall in Halifax on 17th March at 9-9:30 am – all holding orange hearts. It was a public event organised by St Augustine’s Centre to put pressure on the government to amend the bill that makes it […]
Have you ever heard of Newroz? Newroz is the New Year for around 300 million people worldwide, celebrated by Persian, Afghan and Kurdish people. It also marks the first day of Spring. We celebrated this at The Piece Hall from 2 – 5 pm with poetry, music, dancing and more.
Many thanks to Heptonstall Repair Cafe and to Halifax Panthers for their donations to Together We Grow. Great to see how community groups can help each other.
