It was an emotional and fun filled day on Friday 18th July. The current Building Futures Group have come to the end of their programme. They have worked extremely hard this year planning their lives and fulfilling life long goals. All of us at halow are extremely proud as each member has grown more confident and independent.
Young people, parents, staff and volunteers gathered for a well deserved picnic in Shalford Park. The sun shone as everyone enjoyed delicacies from Maison Blanc and local deli The Joint. We were joined by supporters Newfs In Action who donated £333 to support our young people and gave everyone the opportunity to pet 2 enormous Newfoundland dogs.
People played football and enjoyed a very fun giant parachute game. The picnic concluded with a team building game and graduation ceremony as young people were given their personal BFG files. We also said goodbye to Jo from The Discovery Centre who has worked so well with BFG and halow over the years.
Thank you to the Building Futures Group and everyone who was able to attend. It was a wonderful way to round off the term.
