I will be torturing my body by running a few races this summer in order to raise funds for Time Out Group:
1. Colshaw Hall 10K (Knutsford) on Sun 25 Jun 2017
2. Alderley Edge bypass 10k on Sun 2 July 207
3. Macclesfield Half Marathon on Sun 24 Sep 2017
Please donate what you can, even £1 will do. All donations will go directly to Time Out Group and be used to enrich the lives of the members.
Funds raised will ensure that Time Out Group can continue with the "Together" project, is still able to maintain its current activities and services and to attract more people so that an increasing number of adults with learning disabilities benefit.
What is the "Together" project?
The idea was to find some premises in order to provide somewhere where members can drop by to relax, meet others or ask for support and guidance. This dream was fulfilled at the beginning of 2017 whereby Time Out Group signed a lease for some premises at The Paddock in Handforth. There are no other facilities of this kind in this area, where many members live. Initially, these premises will be open two days a week but the dream is that they will be open more frequently throughout the week including weekends when many people with disabilities find themselves excluded from ordinary life events.
Why am I doing this?
I have volunteered for Time Out Group since 2011 and was also appointed a Trustee in 2015. I feel privileged to have become great friends with all the members as well as the parents, carers, staff and trustees. I believe, and have seen that, the activities that Time Out Group provides for adults with learning disabilities helps with their independence, confidence, physical and mental health and their self esteem. I think it is crucial that services provided by Time Out Group continue to be funded and that it is able to reach more adults with learning disabilities in the Cheshire East area.
