of wood, metal, plastic or other, they have a use, memory and connection associated with them. By focusing on
a material each week, SUBSTANCE offers writers opportunities to explore, remember and invent, whilst drawing
inspiration from a rich source they know inside out.

While the doors of TOAST have sadly been closed, Sherry has been being creative with her time.
In a bid to find some pleasant escapism from the pandemic, Sherry is writing a short story each week, which she performs on You Tube every Sunday. The nature of the ‘easiness’ of the stories aptly lends its name to the series; 'Easy Like a Sunday Story’. There have been six episodes so far, with a new one tomorrow.
Or if you prefer, the stories are repeated every Tuesday after the 7pm news on CabinFM and again on Sunday mornings at 8am. The ‘Cabin Stories’ are a few weeks behind, tomorrow’s will be Episode 2.
A free course aimed at those who face mental health difficulties and isolation- to attend please contact
About Take Off:
Take Off provides ready-made social networks and also provide other peer support services as needed. When a need is identified, we will endeavour to design, develop and deliver a service to fill that void. We have a large group of sessional workers spread across East Kent. We believe peer support is a significant part of our recovery process and therefore has an economic value.
