In addition to running a Creative English class, Trescom received a grant from the Creative English Innovation Fund to set up a Sewing Club to help bring the local community together by exploring the textile history of the area.
The learner below told us about how she volunteers to help the Sewing Club after taking part in the Creative English class.
In March 2014, I met Baljit [Trescom’s Project Support Officer] in one of the community centres in Bradford. She told me about the Creative English class and it sounded like a really fun way to learn English. I could speak some English already, but I had very low confidence when I was speaking with professionals. I joined the class and loved it. Now I am volunteering with Trescom and teach sewing to between 14 and 18 students every Thursday morning.
