Pumpkin Decorating Pumpkin donation

A massive thank you to Tesco Martlesham for their very kind donation of 40 pumpkins for our pumpkin carving competition!

Smiles all around as everyone got into the Halloween spirit, choosing which pumpkin they wanted to decorate, and then they got to work scooping out the insides and creating a design for the front of the pumpkin!
Our cooking group then created some delicious pumpkin delicacies, we’ve had pumpkin cake and pumpkin soup, making sure that not an ounce of pumpkin has gone to waste!

Saving the Day

Our Independent Lead, Byron, made the front page of the Ipswich Star! Byron’s amazing story has had local recognition in the Ipswich Star, which will hopefully inspire more people to get first aid training, as Byron proved that you never know when you are going to need to use it!

Our staff are given first aid training and refreshers as part of our brilliant training program at Genesis, and our defibrillator, funded by the Arnold Clark Community Fund, is our newest addition thanks to our staff’s passionate campaigning.

Green Bike Project

The Green Bike Project said a final farewell to The Stable Block in Holywells park, which had been their home since 2008 when the project first opened.

The lads enjoyed a coffee whilst taking a trip down memory lane and recounting their tales from over the years.

Although it was an emotional farewell to a building that holds many cherished memories for them, Genesis is thrilled to have the project home where it belongs, and we can’t wait to see what the future has in store for the fantastic Green Bike Project.
