Every month our blog features our coming up with new, fun activities during lockdown. Our June blog features National Smile Power Day. During these uncertain times, when mental health is a big issue, Achieve together encouraged everyone to smile to raise awareness of what a smile can do to help lighten the mood. Read more about National Smile Power day here.
National Smile Power Day
Aaron from Church view got dressed up to show off his big smile!
Also, Lauren from Gordon Avenue celebrated National Smile Day with blue hair and a wide grin.
The rest of Gordon Avenue got together for a big smiley selfie as they travelled to McDonald’s which finally reopened. Even the staff are smiling under their PPE masks.
The people we support at Uplands House have been transforming their masks into superheroes. A fantastic activity for lockdown!
Uplands House also got creative with their PPE to put the people they support at ease.
Lockdown Learning Disability Week
Lockdown Carers Week
Cleveland House wanted to say thank you to their carers for Carers Week 2020. As one of their activities during lockdown, they spraypainted their message onto the fence accompanied by a colourful rainbow.
Alex from Ty Coedwig celebrates his birthday with lots of gifts and football cake. He can’t wait to watch it again this summer!
The people we support in The Ridge miss doing their personal shopping. So our wonderful staff reached out to the local Aldi, and the manager kindly re-opened the shop after normal opening hours so that the people we support could have the store to themselves and do their shopping.
CS from Hersham Gardens‘ favourite activity during lockdown has been learning the words to the Rainbow song.
Haircuts have been a hot topic recently! The people at The Ridge have been giving each other haircuts.
