Northampton child has his wish

for a new bedroom granted

Cohen, 11 is a remarkable young boy who faces daily

challenges living with HAAS type syndrome and Spina Bifida.

His wish was to have a new room, which was not only

beautifully designed but functional. Make A Wish granted the

very deserving Cohen his wish and teamed up with Talya from

Kinderoo Children’s Interiors to help create his dream room.

Cohen’s wish was to have a place where he could relax with

his friends, a designated area that he could do his homework

and ideally wanted to sleep on a top bunk, but his mobility

made this difficult with a standard bunk bed.

Talya from Kinderoo Children’s Interiors together with Cohen

and his mum set out to create a fun modern space. One of

the main features of his room was a bunk bed with

customized storage stairs to allow easy access to the top

bunk, and there was no doubt which bed Cohen was going to

claim as his. His room had gorgeous high ceilings; so Talya

decided to take a bold approach and give the room a loft feel

with brick effect wallpaper and rich royal blue walls. These

bold colours were offset with bold patterns and the union jack

making an appearance in the accessories and bedding.

‘These children go through so much on a day to day basis, that

to see their reactions when they see their dream room come

to life is one of the greatest experiences one could ever

witness. I count myself very lucky to work with Make A Wish

who truly make the impossible possible.’ Talya, Kinderoo

Children’s Interiors.

If you would like to help make more bedroom makeover

wishes come true you can make a donation to

Make A Wish www.make-a-wish.org.uk or for more information

on this room contact Talya, www.kinderoo.co.uk

Breakfast Cayenne Crumble

31

You will need:

3 apricots 4 medium sized apples

1 tsp cinnamon 2 cups of granola

½ tsp all spice ½ tsp cayenne pepper

2 tbsp honey

Recipes donated by Lyndsey Garrett

Prep - 5 mins Cook Time - 20 mins Serves 8

I don't know about you but breakfasts I

get bored of very quickly, so I’m always

trying to create something new,

something quick and always something

delicious and nutritious. This breakfast

Cayenne Crumble can be served straight

from the oven, cold the next day or reheated

and what’s great about the recipe

that I’m about to share with you, is that

it can also be served as humble homey

comforting pudding.

Don't be scared by adding the cayenne

pepper, this gives a lovely warming

sensation and many health benefits which

is perfect on a cool morning.

How to:

‣ Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees

‣ Core the apples and slice. Split the

apricots, remove stone and slice. Put

sliced apples into a bag (I used a

zip lock sandwich bag) and sprinkle in

the cinnamon, all spice, cayenne pepper

and shake. Lay sliced apples in a

shallow oven proof dish

‣ Pour 1 tbsp of honey over the apples

and layer the apricots on top

‣ Top with the granola and drizzle with the

second tbsp of honey

‣ Bake in the oven for 20 mins - or until

golden and crisp

‣ Eat and I enjoy! I served mine with

some Greek yogurt and a tiny drizzle of

extra honey.

The Advanced Driver Course

Most people with a driving license, on our roads today,

have never had driver training after passing the driving

test. The advanced driver course is designed to provide

this to members of the public. It increases driving skills

and knowledge. There is a one off payment (£149)

which covers all aspects of the course including the test

fee. This payment covers a year’s membership of IAM

Roadsmart as well as the local voluntary group,

Northampton Advanced Motorists, which provides the

driver training. Sessions are done in your car with one

of our observers. There is no limit on the number of

sessions; it depends on progress to advanced standard.

Before committing to the course we can provide a driving

assessment to show you what the course is all about.

Most that do this training are surprised by the difference

it makes to their driving.

Cupcakes, Campaigns and Carnivals

Helen Crawford, Alzheimer’s Society Services Manager

for Northamptonshire

It’s been a busy few months at Alzheimer’s Society. In May we held perhaps our most

successful ever Dementia Awareness Week with our new campaign to encourage people

to be United Against Dementia. We brought together unusual pairings of celebrities to

highlight the fact that we need to be ‘united’ if we are going to defeat dementia which

affects 850,000 people in the UK, including 8000 people in Northamptonshire.

Locally, we got the United Against Dementia message out at Northampton Carnival and

at the Voluntary Impact Northamptonshire Concert, both of which were fantastic events.

We also worked with Northamptonshire Police, who kindly helped us hold an information

stand at their headquarters. Around the same time, the General Election was called and

we found the Dementia Tax becoming one of the key issues being debated. We have

long argued that people with dementia are unfairly treated compared to other

conditions when it comes to funding the care they need. If you want to find out more

about what the term means, or to join our campaign to ‘Fix Dementia Care’ then you can

visit alzheimers.org.uk/dementiatax

Tens of thousands have already signed our petition

which will ensure the voice of people with dementia is

heard by policy makers. In mid-June we held our second

National Cupcake Day, which encouraged people to

bake, buy and eat to turn up the heat on dementia. In

the East Midlands we had an amazing 1876 people sign

up to take part. I’d like to the opportunity to thank

anyone in Northampton who rose to the challenge!

Coming up next we have Memory Walk, which is our

biggest fundraising event of the year. We are holding

34 large walks across the country involving thousands of

people walking for a future without dementia. The

nearest to Northampton is in Bedford but if you can't

make the journey keep an eye out for smaller walks

organised by local supporters. You can sign up at

memorywalk.org.uk

If you’d like to find out how we can support you in Northamptonshire or if you’d

like to volunteer for Alzheimer’s Society, give us a call on 01832 736670

POEM CORNER

A Rewarding Day

Poem donated by David Garrett

41

A day spent by a rippling stream

is not one to forget,

an autumn day, leaves trickling down

plenty more to follow yet.

Blue tits among bare branches chase

while a robin sits close by

a moorhen scuttles from the reeds

with a high-pitched cackling cry

Grey squirrels in a spreading oak tree

branch to branch they leap

hiding food in many places

that their memory fails to keep

The ducks come by, that in the spring

were just fluffy balls of down

now grown up adult birds they are

dressed in natures feathered gown

A flash of blue, a special treat

a kingfisher zooms by

to perch above the babbling stream

a dinner there to spy

A rabbit hops, ears pricked up straight

looking for a bite to eat

always ready to run off

if enemies he should meet

No sound disturbs this peaceful day

only the country residents

who have shared with me this autumn day

and the tranquillity that to me it lent

The damp grey dawn draws to a close

and though fishless I have been

I would not have missed it for the world,

all the wondrous sights I’ve seen.

World renowned dulcimer player & composer

Over three decades Dan has built a niche career as a world-class exponent on

the mountain dulcimer. In concert he presents a repertoire of traditional folk

songs and airs from the British Isles, imaginative and atmospheric original

compositions and the odd classic song to round a set off nicely. All are

arranged in Dan's unique, thoughtful style and presented with considerable

classical skill and a spoonful of English humour. With five CD albums released

to critical international acclaim and sixteen international tours to date, Dan has

won the hearts of audiences on both sides of the Atlantic.

Rebecca Hallworth & Andy Crowdy

Dan will be joined by talented actor and vocalist

Rebecca Hallworth. Rebecca's sublime vocals compliment

Dan's playing superbly. International jazzman Andy

Crowdy will accompany Dan on bass and guitar. Andy is

a hugely versatile and accomplished musician who has

toured the world with many leading virtuosos in the jazz

world. Dan and Andy have worked together on several

albums over many years.

'It's all incredibly pure and all incredibly beautiful.'

SPOTLIGHT

In this edition the spotlight falls on Ben Pearson

Managing Director of Pro Peak Performance

How would you summarise what you do?

At Pro Peak performance we recognise people’s love for

sport. We meet people daily who were heavily involved

in sports in their youth but have lost their confidence to

play as they got older. Many of these people regret no

longer playing the sport they love but don’t know how

to return. We aim to bridge the gap between couch and

club, offering specific training 1-1 or in a group setting.

We offer detailed, tailor made packages specifically for

people’s needs. Ranging from nutrition, exercise and

lifestyle advise. Bespoke packages available including

transport and daily meals. We also run a boot camp style

training called Fit in the Firs (Harlestone Firs) and newly

launched Country Circuits (Upton Country Park) for

people just looking to get/keep in shape.

What first got you interested?

I have been playing sport since I was a child, one of my

biggest regrets was stopping between the ages of 16-30.

I did go to the gym in this time period and I felt I wanted

to learn more about the body, how it works, exercise

and how they link. So I enrolled in an online personal

training qualification and studied at home around work

and family life.

How do your family / friends feel about what you do?

My family, especially my Wife and Brother are hugely

supportive and encouraging. When my friends found out

what I planned to do they said “of course that is what

you should do, it makes so much sense.” Pretty much all

of them had this reaction.

What do you enjoy most about what you do?

What I enjoy most is seeing and hearing about the

results and enjoyment my clients are having.

What ambitions do you have for the future?

I would like to help as many people as possible

return to sport and keep healthy. I hope to expand,

train and employ staff to enable us to have a further

reach across the country.

What’s your background?

My passion throughout my teenage years was

cooking. I went into the hospitality and catering

industry after qualifying at college. Since starting a

family I moved into the Leisure industry (10 years

ago now). My sporting background is Rugby,

although I have had my hand in many sports over

the years. For the last 7 years I have studied Gung Fu

in Northampton which is a big part of my life.

Who inspires you and why?

I could list celebrities such as Donnie Yen, Bruce Lee,

Dwayne Johnson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Bear Grylls,

Ryan Giggs who have all inspired me in their chosen

field for their mentality of doing whatever it takes.

But my true inspiration is my younger brother Dan,

who is all of the above and more with his strong

work ethic, he has achieved greatness within the

Rugby world and is simply a decent human being.
