CINTRE: Community based activities supporting users
Sound Minds: Music for Mental Health: As we are understanding the positive impacts of music more and more and because it runs so deeply through the veins of Bristol, we have organised a little evening of music to both celebrate and raise awareness of how it can make a great difference, particularly to those most in need. The event is to be held at the Leftbank on 128 Cheltenham Rd, on the 27th of April 2018. There will be great music, excellent drinks and spectacular dancing. All proceeds are going to Cintre to help kick start a music project for service users.

Service users will get:
- Free cooking lessons
- Free meals
- A chance to meet new people
- Lessons in nutrition, health and safety in the kitchen and hygiene around food
- Your travel to and from Invia paid for

Vegetarian Week: Between the 14th and the 20th of May it is Vegetarian Week, where lots of people celebrate vegetarian food and how it helps with health and the environment.
We have been awarded over £100 to spend on a Vegetarian Taster Session at Invia.
We will be cooking a three course meal for over 30 people where you are all invited to come along and enjoy some vegetarian tasters for free!
Don’t worry if you don’t like vegetables, we will be coming up with some delicious recipes for you to experience vegetarian food in a positive way.
