martin service user sadly passed away( Mr cappuccino) RIP
Can you believe that we’re in the third week of May, the time is racing by.
We have been very busy in the Centre, the donations keep piling in and it’s a juggling act to take the donations in, sort them or store them along with leaving enough space to run activities. We’re not complaining, far from it, we love a good sort out and are always very appreciative of the donations. The service users love to get involved with sorting them out, they enjoy making sure all pieces are there when we get puzzles, games and anything with more than one piece. We also have a lot of fun when finding clothes that we can put in our fancy dress box for our themed parties too.
Our events have been going great. The quiz night was so much fun, you really have to come along to experience a quiz night like no other, with some very special people leading the nights.
Our Jubilee fundraiser took an unexpected detour of the day. We were planning on performing and collecting outside of the Britten Centre, but the weather wasn’t very kind, but we didn’t abandon it altogether, we did it outside of the Centre instead, so we could run in if it rained, which happened. I did some singing to start the day, while everything else was set up, We had our bangers and crashers perform some great songs which was cheered on by people coming to watch. The party went ahead as planned…..it takes a lot for us to cancel a party, so the day ended on the high that it started with.
We have a new very enthusiastic volunteer that we hope will enjoy his time with us and stay, so look out for a new name on the staff page in the coming weeks.
We’re looking forward to what the summer brings for us, we have some exciting activities planned. Everyone is welcome to come along and join in.
But for now, warmest wishes. Jacs
