Clothes shopping

Lorna has been supported by her staff team to visit Matalan to pick out some new clothes. Lorna was shown different styles and colours, picking her favourites and putting them in her basket.

Lorna will be wearing her new clothes when attending Day Services.

New furniture

Adam has been supported to visit a furniture store to choose a new dining table and sideboard for his house that he shares with two housemates. He will be showing photos of the furniture that he likes to his housemates to see if they like them too and then the new furniture will be purchased.

Having a go at Boccia

Toni has really been enjoying going to Boccia recently. You may be wondering what is Boccia?

Boccia is a sport designed for athletes with high support needs and has no Olympic equivalent. It is a target sport played indoors with soft leather balls. It is a sport of intriguing tactics, incredible skill and nail biting tension. Once you see it or play it you will be hooked!

A trip to the West End

Service user Adam has recently been on a trip to London to see a West End Show after already visiting London earlier in the year to see Aladdin. Adam has lots of DVDs and loves musicals. Adam’s staff team supported him to choose which show he would like to see and came into the office where I supported him to plan his trip including the show, hotel and transport. Adam said that he really enjoyed the trip and would like to look further afield for the ultimate experience, maybe even New York!

We’re very proud to receive a letter from the National Autistic Society thanking us for our donation of £150.00 which was raised from the disco in April. We originally raised £142.00 but this was rounded up all in aid of a great cause.

Another thank you to everyone involved, the money raised will make a real difference.
