Photos of Ray in action

Area Coordinator Rez met Ray a year ago, a few months after Ray had sadly lost his wife. During this time Ray found himself at home more often and tended not to socailise with others. This was an unusual transition for Ray as he was always a bubbly person who worked in numerous trades involving lots of interaction with customers he served. Ray spent a large part of his career working as a chef.

Rez and Ray worked together to find suitable activities for Ray to attend. After trialling a couple of activities, that Ray did not find suitable, Rez connected Ray to Castlehaven community centre. Ray instantly clicked with staff and service users at this community centre and really enjoyed their social gatherings. The pictures above show Ray in his new role as a volunteer for the community centre as he often offers to bake cakes for the socials Castlehaven host. He is holding a secret recipe chocolate cake which went down a treat for everyone who got to taste it! Connecting Ray to Castlehaven was ideal as it really allowed him to showcase his passion for cooking and feeding other people.

In addition, Ray also recently joined a lunch club North London Cares coordinate, in Oldfield Estate, and is planning on baking a bread pudding for other attendees with him the next time he goes.
