25th anniversary celebrations

Three celebration lunches were held last week to bring our day club members and volunteers together for a special meal, a glass of bubbly and to share cake and congratulations! It's amazing that we have reached this incredible milestone - and we're looking forward to the next 25 years!!

Thanks to all of our generous sponsors and supporters who made these events possible. All the staff worked their socks off to ensure that everyone had a great time - and regular club volunteers got to sit down and enjoy a meal and a chat!
