- Launch of new student programme - Monday 8th September [August 2014]
8th September is fast approaching. This date marks the beginning of a new era for Camtrust with the introduction of our dynamic and exciting programme of activities focussed on independent living and work based activities including preparing healthy meals, safe food handling, baking and cake decoration, office administration, customer service, IT and so much more...
We are looking forward to welcoming our new cohort of students and starting on this new adventure together.
- Open Day [August 2014]
Look out for our Open Day in October (date to be announced) when our brand new kitchen facilities will be on view.
- Donations - thank you! [August 2014]
Over the last month we have received donations from local Cambridge churches as well as the Forbes Charitable Foundation (£2,000 towards the kitchen refurbishment) and local company GE in Histon. GE have very kindly donated to Camtrust the proceeds from their annual 5-a-side charity football tournament. Many thanks to all concerned. We are always extremely grateful for these contributions to the work of the charity.
- New kitchen at Camtrust [July 2014]
Camtrust is having a new kitchen fitted in August. It will feature lowered worktops and will be fully accessible, even for those in a wheelchair. We are looking forward to it as it will enable us to offer cookery based activities at Camtrust, in a dedicated environment.
Come and visit us to see it in operation in September!
- Camtrust wins Best Decorated Stall at Ely's Aquafest [July 2014]
Our students have worked very hard to plan and design the Tour de France themed decorations for our stall at Ely's Aquafest. Their efforts have been rewarded by winning Best Decorated Stall on the 6th of July. We have been present with a Camtrust stall also at Histon Feast, Arbury Carnival and Chesterton Festival this summer. We would like to thank all the people that have supported us during these events but also those that have stopped for a chat and to enquire about our charitable work. Thank you!
- 100% Success at Camtrust [July 2014]
Another great year here at Camtrust with all of our students achieving the qualification they were studying for. A heartfelt thank you to all the staff for supporting the students during the academic year, and congratulations to our students for all their hard work!
- Camtrust students get a clean bill of health [June 2014]
In June we had a visit from a local GP who brought with her much of the equipment that she uses on a daily basis in her surgery. The students, therefore, were able to listen to each other's heart beats, take each other's temperatures, blood pressure, test their reflexes and, with thanks to some intrepid volunteers, even urine was checked. The students turned out to be quite a healthy lot!
