The T.A.N.G.O. cafe closes on Thursday 14th December, 2017 and the Warehouse on Friday 15th December, 2017. They will re-open on Tuesday, 2nd January, 2018. Many Thanks to all our customers over 2017 and we wish you a Happy Christmas and Good New Year when they come!
There is a separate tab on the website, called T.A.N.G.O. Survey, where you can download a Questionnaire and return it to us on email, if you are able to share your thoughts and ideas about T.A.N.G.O. with us.
This feedback helps us to plan for the future.
We held a hot-pot supper and quiz night in conjunction with the Ladies Meeting of St Mark’s on 21st November.
Everyone had a good night and we managed to raise some money.
The Ladies meeting have put their portion of the proceeds to the charities they support throughout the year and TANGO sent £225.10 to Stand Up 2 Cancer.
I recent years some of our staff and volunteers have been badly affected by this terrible disease – either themselves, or a close love one, and unfortunately we ALL know someone who has been affected in this way. So we hope our donation will go some way to help with research to eradicate this disease.
A big thank you to everyone who donated and to staff, volunteers and the Ladies Meeting for all their hard word in organising the evening. xx
TANGO will be holding its annual 3 course Christmas Lunch on Wednesday 6th Decembe r at 12pm in St Mark’s Centre.
Tickets are £6 for adults and £3 for children under 12 and are available from TANGO shop or cafe.
Come and join us.
Thanks for looking at our website!
We are beginning to update this over the coming months, so bear with us, and we will have some up-to-date information about What’s On, What We Do, and What We Would Like To Do over the next 12 months.
The Quiz Night on 1st August proved to be a great success. Ian raised over £300 for his sponsored shave and we raised over £500 on the night. We have arranged to send a cheque for £1000 to Help for Heroes. A great big thank you to all who contributed.
And there it was gone to reveal a fresh faced Ian!!
We would also like to thank all those who generously donated prizes:-
St Helens RLFC, West End Salon, St Helens Windows, Gem’s Hair Salon, Christine & Wilf Kay, Dot Robinson, Julie Ward, Re-Nu Beauty, Barry Chesworth Butchers.
Thanks to Dougie for being Compere & DJ for the evening and all our staff who put so much effort into making it such a success.
Each morning before we open we have a quiet time of reflection and then one of our volunteers leads us in prayer with a poem, saying or their own words.
Today (Thursday 23rd January 2013) Jan gave us this:
We opened with a quiet moment to think how we felt about coming into TANGO today.
She then gave out a variety of vegetables to some of the volunteers –
A carrot – a tough vegetable but sweet in flavor
An onion – very strong in flavour but can bring tears to your eyes when you cut into it
A potato – very dependable, versatile and you can do many things with it
A pepper – bright and tangy
A Leek – not as strong as an onion but has great flavor
A stock cube – small but effective and flavoursome
All different shapes and sizes – all important in their own right. Put them in a pan and mix them altogether, use a good recipe and the result is a fantastic soup.
At TANGO we have all different shapes, sizes and personalities. Put us all together and we make a fantastic team. Each one as important as the other, but all unique in their own way – leaders, volunteers and customers. All needing one another to bring out the best in us.
Like in the soup – the right amount of ingredients, a good recipe and guide lines, resulting in a great success
You are invited to T.A.N.G.O on a Sunday??
This is held on the first Sunday of the month in the TANGO Cafe 11am till 12 noon. Everyone welcome
It is an informal chat over tea, coffee and toast. Topics up for discussion have been big issues such as:
‘Tell me what you want, what you really really want’
‘Does your chewing gum lose its flavour on the bedpost overnight’? and
‘To be or note to be. That is the Question’? !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Please note that our Warehouse and Shop are not open on these days!!)
