Thank you Claire Bates from Supported Loving for a fab day learning about the CQC guidance on sexuality. Learnt LOADS!!!
1st get to know you date for these two. Quotes of the night were “he is 10 out of 10”, “I would not have normally dared go and talk to her normally” and finally which really made us feel a bit emotional ‘I have only been bowling a few times. as I do not want to come on my own’……hopefully this will be the beginning of a new friendship 🙂
First presentation was very nicely followed by a very glam meal out in Browns. 16 people came….. whoops we only booked for 8!!! Thank you Browns for squishing us in 🙂
Thanks to Bill and Lizzie from our soon to be officially set up steering group who presented with Vicky and Christine at VoiceAbilities “Stop loneliness” event. Our first presentation scary!! Thanks for having us 🙂
Before Vicky got thrown out of The Ritz London after the Autism Show! Train line was closed and we had a two hour walk to Kings Cross. We wanted rest our legs with our cans of coke….apparently that’s not how the they roll in the ‘finest hotel in London’ 😉
A day at the Autism show for Vicky and Christine. Francesca Hope talking about autism and girls . Girls are often misdiagnosed with anxiety and depression. Thank goodness there is more research going into this subject.
Yep we met the mayor!!! Kayla (amazing volunteer and all round lovely, sweet wonderful person) having a chat with the amazing lady. Did you know the mayor position is not paid??? Neither did we! She did 352 functions in a year as a volunteer.
Thank you John Lewis and CCVS for spoiling us volunteers with fizz and treats! (not thank you for dragging a petrified Christine in to do a radio interview on her own though!!)
Even though most of our time is spent going to meet new members, we have had successful matches this week!!! Helping our members have the chance of safe and supported friendship and love. We all need this happiness in our life! Safe Soulmate will not forget their happy faces ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Our last event really was brilliant, thanks to the wonderful people who came along to party! You are all awesome. Over 120 people attended our event, we’re sorry if you couldn’t get tickets, we hope to be able to invite more next time to our summer party!! More details when we have them …
Our second large social event is nearly here and we are very excited!!!! If you haven’t been able to come along this time, we hope you can make it next time.
