Emergency COVID-19 Funding to support Chinese Community in Colchester & Tendering through funding from The National Lottery Community Fund
Essex Cultural Diversity Project (ECDP) will be working with the Colchester Chinese Culture Society (CCCS) who have been severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Regular weekly activities will be held, including Tai Chi, Language classes, Calligraphy and cooking classes for those feeling very isolated and fearful in the current climate. Through CCCS a reach-out programme has been set up to encourage participation and engagement through online activities such as music, dance, Calligraphy, Tai Chi, Yoga and crafts workshops via Zoom video call. The online digital platforms will be accessible to these communities to promote wellbeing, fitness, and mental health. This will be an interim process until the easing of the Lockdown over the next six months, reaching out to 350 people from the Chinese communities in Colchester & Tendering.
Further details of the sessions will be promoted through our website and social media pages.
