Ouseburn's service users at Minsteraces' Summer Fete

15 August 2014

Service users from our Ouseburn Centre recently took part in Minsteracres Centre’s Summer Fete at the Walled garden. Dean, Robert T, Jennifer, Nicole, Clare, Alison, and Michael attended, and were supported by Life Skills Instructor, Lorna.

They held their own stall to raise money for Daybreak, Ouseburn. There was a ‘Name the Bear’ competition; items such as jam and jewellery being sold; a cake competition and there was a lady doing manicures. The jam sold very well and the group raised £40 for their centre. The service users really enjoyed their day and Nicole and Clare won prizes on the raffle. Well done everyone!

The group saw who the new players are and learnt about how the team train. They saw the players on the pitch warming up and passing the ball to each other, then they practiced showing their skills.

The service users really enjoyed being in the stadium and the exciting atmosphere. Service user, Andrew B, said “It was great being able to go to the stadium to watch the team for free as it is normally too expensive for tickets.” Michael agreed, saying, “I loved watching the players and would like to go again.”

Service users at Daybreak’s Ouseburn Centre have taken part in an event held to inform the Care Quality Commission about our organisation. As part of their presentation, they showed and discussed what they do at the centre, gave examples of activities, as well as performing a dance piece entitled “Welcome to our world.” The service users performed and presented their work to roughly 25 – 30 members of staff.

Feedback received was very positive and the Care Quality Commission has invited the group back to perform again.
