Time Out Group “Together” Premises Inauguration Saturday 29th March 2017
Time Out Group are holding the official opening of their premises at the Paddock in Handforth on Saturday 29th April 10:00-14:00. There will be a great fanfare taking place with cakes, drinks, a Tombola, a Bottle Tombola, member presentations, a Samba band and a visit from the one and only Annabel Tiffin, our Patron ambassador! We welcome everyone to come along to enjoy the day and look at what Time Out Group is all about.
Salli Ward, Time Out Group manager, and the trustees have been hard at work over the past few months to bring some exciting new changes to Time Out Group. Time Out Group members and families have been asking for a permanent site where some activities could take place, where they can meet with each other and increase their independence and involvement in the local community. This would also offer opportunities for adults with a learning disability to ‘drop in’, volunteer, work placement, get advice and join in fun activities. The members decided that the project and premises should be called “Together”.
Since January 2017 members, staff, friends, carers and trustees have all been busy getting the place decorated and ship shape.
Time Out Group is a local charity that has been supporting adults with learning disabilities over the past 15 years to engage in social and sporting activities ensuring that they have the opportunity to play a more inclusive role in local society. It provides the opportunity to build friendships and learn life skills that can help lead to a more independent and fulfilling life for its members, their families and carers.
