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