JAAR Well Loved Recipe and Walk Book
Jersey Action Against Rape (JAAR) has published a book of walking routes and recipes written by supporters of the charity during the Covid pandemic.
This local book, Well Loved Recipe & Walks describes favourite walks and recipes inspired during the first lockdown the Island experienced from March 2020.
The book was the idea of Jayne Gruchy from the charity, she said: “I wanted to reach out to JAAR’s supporters during the pandemic to make sure everyone was feeling ok. With everyone walking and cooking more I had an idea that JAAR could utilise this wealth of local knowledge and creativity by asking for favourite walks and recipes.
“I was astounded at the response to the point that I thought all these contributions would make a great local book that JAAR could use to raise funds.
“Whilst collating the contents of the book I spoke with a contributor who had been really enthused by the project. Lockdowns have meant more time to reflect on our lives. For some, it has uncovered the past and this can be painful. This book is about reflecting on positive things and reminding us that there is always someone to talk to.
“We all have the ability to heal when we share our burdens. This is what JAAR does, we take time to listen and by doing so, we can make a difference to those who have suffered the trauma of rape, sexual assault and childhood sexual abuse.”
