The Brothers of Charity Services have various Social Enterprises for adults with learning disabilities; services are designed to support people to develop skills with confidence in a supportive working environment whilst offering services in the local community.

The social enterprises carryout lots of great, fun activities for the people we support and the local communities to get involved with. Here you will be able to find out what each of the social enterprises have been up to this week.

Our Arty Crafter’s were delivering a Crafty session today at Genesis a support group for people living with Dementia, their families and carers. As February 14th is fast approaching, we made Valentine’s cards and everyone had a fabulous time, and some great Reminiscence conversation too, Well done James our photographer and Joanna and Tina our crafter’s for a great session.

We delivered craft sessions at Home Start Central in Lancashire recently, we were thrilled when a member of the group who’s new to crafting come into our shop to proudly show off her latest achievement; a beautifully decorated wooden heart! It’s great to see her growing in confidence and trying out new things. Well done!

Heaton Street/ Hands on Gardening

The snowy weather has slowed down our usual gardening rounds, but we visited some of our regular customers to clean their driveways of snow and ice. Our team have also been busy helping to re-pot and style the large Bonsai trees at The Walled Garden in Worden Park and after seeing the first snow drops appear, it won’t be long until spring arrives and the gardening season starts properly.

Pets’ Corner

Rebecca and Jennifer enjoyed some quality time with Digby the rabbit recently. As he is too big, we aren’t really able to hold him so Rebecca makes sure to spend some time in his pen with him each week. Pop in and say hello, we’re open every day between 10am to 3:30pm.

The Marina Cafe

As the Marina Cafe was closed yesterday due to the large fire just down the road; some of the fire fighters were stationed on the marina car park for breaks and changes. The team at Marina Cafe offered out cups of tea to keep the fire fighters going and as a result they kindly added the below post to their twitter feed.

The fire fighters have also asked if they can make a generous donation to the Brothers of Charity through a fund they have.
