Thank you to everyone that took part in The Butterfly Walk 2016
Our third Butterfly Walk took place this year at High Lodge near Thetford on Sunday 10th July. We created the event as something that all ages could take part in together.
The walk takes its name from our bright logo which is made up of four speech bubbles. This symbolises that our work is so often about having a close dialogue with the people we support locally.
This year we raised over £3000 which will be going to our Meet Up centre in Thetford. Since opening in 2010 it has helped over 1,000 children, families and senior citizens in the local community. The building is in need of vital repairs so a fundraising campaign was launched earlier this year in a bid to raise at least £30,000.
The services we offer at Meet Up include:
Twice weekly youth clubs attended by over 100 young people aged 9 - 16
Daytime drop in for 16-24 year olds not in regular education, employment and training. They are supported with job searching and CV writing, plus life skills like budgeting and cooking healthy meals.
A weekly parent and toddler group
Senior citizens lunch club
