We know how important it is for people to stay connected and busy while our Lifelong Learning Programmes are closed. This page includes details of all the things we’re doing at the moment – if you have any other ideas, please let us know.

We’ll update this page regularly, so please keep checking back!

Daily Activities

We’re posting daily activities on our website – here – in line with our weekly theme. You can do them all at home, using resources that you should be able to find around the house / garden. We’re also sending printed packs out in the post – please get in touch if you want one!

Colouring Pages

Our fabulous Programme Leader Lorna has been illustrating some beautiful colouring pages to go along with the weekly theme of our Daily Activities. You can see them all here. They’re free to download and print as many times as you want – or if you’d like us to send you some in the post please just get in touch!

Zoom Workshops

Our Programme Leaders, Artists and Supports are running regular group Zoom groups on the days that our Programmes usually run. We’re also very excited to be running daily Zoom workshops every weekday afternoon, in addition to our regular groups. They’re open to all participants of our Lifelong Learning Programmes, and with a wide range of activities including storytelling, dance and an art club, there’s bound to be something for everyone!

We’re also running a Zoom disco on the first Thursday of every month from 7pm – 8.30pm. Join DJ James as he spins some classic tunes!

Download the timetable here.

We’ve put together a series of radio shows, with you as our stars. You can listen to them here!

If you want to be involved, all you need to do is send us an audio clip of you saying your name, which Programme you attend and what song you’d like us to play. Our Programme Leader, James, will then work his magic!

For more information, or help on how to record your audio clip, please email James: james@purplepatcharts.org
