Following on from the great success of a joint picnic between the ‘sibling services’ Wren Park and Livingstone Road the two services decided to join forces again, this time raising money for Macmillan Cancer Research with a coffee morning.
Ali Brady, who is the service administrator at Wren Park said: “We had a lovely time eating cake and drinking our tea, coffee and hot chocolate.”
Heather, who leads the team at both services threw herself into baking and made a wonderful cake with a cup and saucer on top of it for the coffee morning. Ali described this as “a work of art” and this can be seen photographed right, this was very apt for the occasion.
All of the staff worked very hard to put on a lovely spread which was demolished by everyone who attended the event. The staff and the people they support were chatting, laughing, joking and eating cake – it was a great event all round and, importantly, raised over £80 for cancer research.
Ali said: “It was lovely as we had some parents come as well as a few of the affectionately named ‘Pembroke 5’ who used to live at Wren Park and came back to join us for the event.”
The two services are already looking forward to their next joint venture.
