Hayashen Armenian Youth Club Restarts

HAYC restarted on 17 July and 3 August 2020 at Hayashen. Socially distancing was respected during activities such as table tennis, table football, eating together and a discussion on how the youth managed their time during the lockdown. As a result, the on-line video Youth sessions have now ended.

We welcome your views about HAYC via links below.

London Legal Walk 2020: Support CAIA's Legal Advice Service

The London Legal Walk annually raises much needed funds for charities that provide life changing legal advice and representation to those in need. However, due to the ongoing restrictions in place regarding mass participation events, the Walk has turned virtual for 2020, giving you the opportunity to participate in any way and any place you like to support CAIA's charitable work.

Take on 10k your way, whether that's walking, running, cycling, skipping or space hopping your way to 10km. People can walk individually, as a household, or as a socially distanced group of colleagues depending on if your team are working from home or back in the office on the 5 th October. There is no set start time for this virtual challenge, so choose a time, route and pace that suits you!

You can also showcase your skills by taking on a challenge to a multiple of 10, whether that’s baking 10 cakes, writing 10 poems, 100 minutes of your favourite exercise class (Yoga, Pilates, Zumba), 1,000-star jumps/sit ups, or doing a team challenge to reach 10,000 or even 100,000 together.

Need some more 10xChallenge inspiration? See the image below for ideas.
