This month the boys and staff at Nightingale had a good clear out of their unwanted clothes to donate to Mission Malawi.
At Mission Malawi, staff sort through the clothes and take them back to Africa, where the fabric is used to make new dresses and clothes for the families who need them.
The Home Manager at Nightingale said "Staff at Mission Malawi were overwhelmed with how much we donated. Our home has been working together with Mission Malawi for over 2 years now and the boys really enjoy seeing the Malawi staff when they come to collect the clothes"
The girls at Brunswick House had a great Christmas!
Festive treats included a visit from Santa, complete with presents. And they went on a Christmas outing to see Aladdin at the local theatre with all the staff team.
Here are some photos!
Last night the three boys at Nightingale House went to Bedford Hospital.
They donated presents and chocolates to the Children's Ward.
We're so proud of our boys for wanting to help children who will be ill in hospital over Christmas.
This week both our schools hosted a festive Christmas lunch.
Our pupils assisted our Food Tech teachers to prepare a delicious 3 course meal, to which all staff had been invited too.
It was a lovely occasion where everyone sat down together and celebrated another successful term.
There was even a surprise visit from Santa with a sackful of presents (he looked suspiciously like our Head of Care Mark Cole...)
A few of the Art Students at our Bedford School entered a local Christmas Tree Festival at St Nicholas Church in Barton Le Clay.
Each student created their own Bitmoji character and made a bauble for themselves. They also each hung a key on the tree with a label saying 'the key to my success is...'
The crowning glory was the beautiful Oracle star on the top - the students named our entry 'The Oracle Star.'
The judges awarded us 2nd Place with a "Highly Commended" Award, much to everyone's delight!
