February Fun

Our Bedfordshire homes made the most of their half term holiday with a wide range of activities. The young people and staff were clearly kept busy with fun and exciting adventures all crammed into one week.


Activities included sports like bowling, badminton, ice-skating and Laser Quest together with trips to London to celebrate Chinese New Year and visiting Wembley Stadium. While in London the young people dined out and tried new foods. While at Wembley the visit included being pitch side, walking through the players entrance, lifting the FA Cup something not many people get the opportunity to do.
One visit during the holiday was to Mercedes World where they had the opportunity to drive an actual car... amazing!

Two very special events cannot go without mentioning though -
• One very special young lady cut her long hair short and donated her pony-tail to the Little Princess Trust, who make wigs for children whom have lost their hair. This means that she had at least 7 inches of hair cut off as that is the minimum length for donation. An amazing self-less act for someone so young. We are all very proud of her!
• A young man also cooked his first ever three course meal for his house mates, something he had not even contemplated before. We all know where to go for dinner.... his Orange Mouse was delicious!
Credit also to the young people who dedicated some of their time towards their educational studies - well done!

They all returned to school this week, working hard and planning for their next adventures during the Easter holiday.

Nightingale Boys Donate to Mission Malawi

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"

Christmas at Brunswick

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!

Nightingale Boys Donate Presents

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.

School Christmas Lunches

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...)
