An Active Community 🚶‍♀️🏃‍♀️🚴‍♀️

The BTTC Running Club in Strava has 72 members and is proving to be an excellent way to feel connected and stay active. 

BTTC's parkrun Resolution was to get as many people as possible running/ jogging/ walking in January and to collectively (virtually) run/ walk to Oban in Scotland (1676km) and back before the end of February. We've now got 72 members in the BTTC Strava running club, nearly all of them completely new to it, and we completed this goal over a month ahead of schedule.

Origami Inside - the inspiration for BTTC's work in prisons 🙏 

Origami Inside is a project set up by Helen Holtam (Tim's mum) teaching prisoners the art of origami. The project started in 2017 in HMP Erlestoke and today, inmates create origami for greetings cards as well as intricate stand-alone sculptures.

In 2017 it was the reason that BTTC started running weekly Table Tennis sessions at HMP High Down and HMP Downview women's prison after hearing how rewarding and much needed it was working in the prison environment. 

All profits earned from the sale of the cards and sculptures will be used to help towards the rehabilitation of prisoners. The brand new website and shop has a range of origami cards and sculptures for all occasions.

Connecting Communities 🏓
