The Sunbeams Of Bentham


 

On June 8th the club members welcomed a return visit from Rebecca Porter and Ruth Poole to give an update about the activities of the group based in Bentham.

A youth club is now held every 2 weeks and in school holidays workshops are run for the children and their siblings supported by Skipton Extended Learning For All a Skipton based children's charity supporting children who are vulnerable or disadvantaged.

Trips and activities enjoyed include a canal barge ride, a visit to Blackpool Zoo, plus craft, Lego and circus fun days.

A short break away from home for families was a highlight as it helped to strengthen parents in the group and to combat the feelings of isolation. Future plans include bowling, a visit to Thornton Hall Farm and Energy trampolining. A successful coffee morning on Easter Saturday raised almost £400. The future is looking good as the group evolves and continues to help families who are challenged by autism and other additional needs.
