As part of Small Charity Week, the lovely people at Localgiving will be doubling one-time donations to local charities pound-for-pound by up to £25!

On 22nd June only they will be doubling your donations. If you’d like to donate £5, they will double it, if you want to give £25 they will double it too but only up to £25, so if you’d like to donate a very generous £100 +, please do so £25 at a time.

Any donations are always welcome and the support you provide helps us to create a living and working community where people with learning disabilities, and those who support them, reach their full potential in the spirit of lifelong learning.

Thank you!

We have launched the T-shirt Yarn Project!
Inspired by recycling, up-cycling and craft, we are using donated T-shirts to create yarn in order to make new handmade products.
Part of the T-shirt Yarn Project will see the launch of an in-house pop-up ‘Arts Café’ set up by and for residents, co-workers and volunteers every Friday afternoon. All participants will meet to create craft relating to arts therapy. It will be a time to meet and chat over a cup of tea and create a little magic.
We will use the stress-relieving techniques of crochet, knitting and braid making to create the large rug for our ‘social room’ and because making a braid is one of the simplest techniques, everyone with various abilities and disabilities can get involved.
The inspiration behind the T-shirt Yarn Project also comes from Knit For Health and Wellness study and book by Betsan Corkhill, which discusses the therapeutic benefits of knitting. By reducing stress each Friday afternoon, Camphill Communities Milton Keynes will be knitting for health.
If you would like to get involved, please drop in your old T-shirts to our onsite Shop and be a part of this truly inclusive community project.

Our residents, co-workers, staff and volunteers were involved in a very special performance project over the Easter Holiday.
 Performed by the community over three days last week, Pilgrim’s Progress was a musical play with a ‘moral story’. An adaptation from the Christian allegory written by John Bunyan whilst he was in Bedford prison for preaching outside the Church of England in 1678, our version focused on key positive aspects of human existence. Exploring life as a journey, the broadening people’s horizons and experiences through travel, and how community and a sense of purpose is the key to fulfilling lives. A truly community wide project, everyone had a part as a musician, shadow performer or narrator. 
 One of the rather unique things about Camphill MK is that we work hard to ‘build community’ by getting people involved in projects that are not much to do with their work but create social and cultural activity where we all have a part to play. It’s about meeting as people rather than as residents, staff, managers etc. 
 
Thanks to everyone involved and to our very own acclaimed director Joan Harris for making such a wonderful project happen!
