cooking picture 1“You are never too old to learn new skills” is a principle that volunteer Pat Hepworth holds to as she and several other Lighthouse Project volunteers participated in a Level 2 Food Safety in Catering course run through the Inspire Community College.

Pam Semp
, our Centre Manager, also took the course and found it very enjoyable.

Pat also helps at the Lighthouse Project by supporting people to learn basic online and computer skills and running some of our card making craft activities.

We all have the potential to learn new skills, in fact we are probably doing it all the time without realising it. Sometimes attending a structured course can be daunting as it reminds us of our ‘school days’, which for some are not always good memories.

But you are never too old to learn and if you give it a go you may actually find that you surprise yourself by what you can do.
