Welcome to Burton Street Foundation
Zahara and Walid’s Couch to 5K!
As many of you may know, Zahara and Walid; two of our service users are walking a massive 5k for their chosen charities. They are both wheelchair bound, so this is a huge undertaking from them. We want to raise as much money as possible for Heeley City Farm and WAW (World Association of Wrestling) based in Norwich, recently featured on BBC Three’s Step In To The Ring show.
We support up to 250 clients a week, across a variety of departments to aid in learning and development.
We are a multi-purpose site, many businesses call us home, we offer on site workplace training, and host countless conferences and events each year.
This session is designed to be a low-key relaxing session for all and any clients who are interested in joining. The aim is for us all to experience and learn some techniques which help us relax and feel good at home.
We generally start with a brief chat and a song, followed by some gentle but energising warm ups. We then slow down and spend a longer period of time with our microphones muted, listening to relaxing music and doing some breathing exercises together, and then enjoy a guided Peace Out meditation. This is an opportunity for all clients to listen to peaceful and relaxing sounds and experience some stillness and calm.
We advise preparing for this session simply by having to hand any pillows or blankets you may wish to use during the relaxing second half of the session, as people may wish to lay down for this. However, everyone is free to enjoy this session in whatever way works for them!
The session is intended to offer something for everyone, whether they prefer simply listening to familiar voices and relaxing music, or doing gentle movements alongside this which can help our bodies feel good.

Monday 19th April
1 Tbsp chia seeds or 1 Egg
2 Tbsp water
125 grams butter, melted
½ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ cup plain flour
1 ½ cup rolled oats
¾ cup raisins
- If you are making the egg-free version of this recipe, then start by soaking the chia seeds in the water in a small bowl, leave them aside for 10 minutes or so. If you are going to make this recipe with an egg then you can skip this step
- Mix the brown sugar and melted butter together, I use a whisk for this step
- Whisk in either the soaked chia seeds or an egg and the vanilla
- Add the flour, mix well (I swap to a wooden spoon at this stage)
- Add the rolled oats and mix well
- Add the raisins and mix so they evenly through the mix
- Pour the mix into lined slice tin (I use a 20 x 20 cm tin, a cake tin will also work if you don't have a slice tin
- Bake at 180 degrees Celsius (350 F) for 20-25 minutes or until the edges are golden and start to come away from the edge of the tin
- Allow to cool then slice into squares
