The Borders Involved group loves to mix things up in our sessions, one week we might be discussing healthy relationships or intersectionality, another week we might be making blanket forts or banners for Pride. In February we really did mix it up, by having a baking session – based on the young people’s dietary or sensory needs, one of our amazing volunteers created two recipes respectively containing no eggs, and no gluten. The chocolate chip shortbread (egg free) was amazing, and made from scratch with the efforts of an enthusiastic young person. Taylor, or volunteer, also made a bunch of gluten free cupcakes and brought in a load of icing and sprinkles, which lots of the group used to decorate their cakes. One person decorated 4 cakes and took them home, one each for their family, which was super inclusive. What will we do next…?
