Support Our Skydivers!

It is that time of the year again!

Some plucky supporters of Hamelin Trust will be hurtling through the air and towards the grassy ground.  Coming down from 12,000ft at that speed is not how most of us would like to spend our Saturday afternoon, but seven Hamelin Trust supporters have decided it is for them.

The skydive this year will be extra special as two people close to Hamelin Trust will be taking part.

    

Jo Turner, a brave staff member from Hamelin House, has decided to take the leap to raise money for children and adults with disabilities and their carers.

Megan Star, who uses our Outreach Support service, will also be taking part in the jump.  She is very adventurous and does not let her disability get in the way of fulfilling her dreams.  Having never done something like this before, it is a huge deal for her and Hamelin Trust.

Come along to cheer all our jumpers on by coming along from 8.30am on 17th June at:

Headcorn Airfield

March 2013 – Zeelandia Cupcake Decorating Morning
Supports Hamelin Trust

Zeelandia, a local bakery ingredients company approached Hamelin Trust to ask if they could carry out a cupcake decorating activity.  They wanted to help teach practical skills to the adults with  learning disabilities.

This was welcomed with open arms and the Cupcake Decorating was carried out at Hamelin Trust™s  central office on Thursday 28th  March, 2013.

Caroline Ratcliffe, Marketing Executive and Adam Davies, Bakery Technician at Zeelandia carried out the activity. Supplying all the sponges, icings and decorations Caroline and Adam gave demonstrations and assisted the adults with their creations.  The adults benefited from the activity and enjoyed eating their creations for lunch.

Hamelin Trust are looking forward to working with Zeelandia again later in the year to carry out a similar fun activity.  A big thank you to all the staff at Zeelandia who made this activity happen.
