This October Half Term MASKK are working with Manor & Castle Development Trust with funding from People Keeping Well (Sheffield City Council), Great Places and Sheffield Housing Company to provide a variety of activities for local families.

This includes creating 382 hampers that have been distributed to local schools to offer to families. These hampers include the ingredients and instructions to create 2 family meals along with some simple activity ideas too. Put together by local workers and volunteers giving their time to support this great initiative.


We’ve written a little booklet with the recipes and activities and everyone is welcome to have a look and perhaps try the meals for yourself. The ingredients to make both meals for 4 people cost less than £10 all together in the local shops, and you’ll still have the store cupboard items left for future meals too. We’d love to see photos of you trying our the meals and hear your feedback. To download your a copy to have a look click here:

As well as the hampers there will other activities taking place too. These intend to continue even in Tier 3, but in a Covid secure way.
