Ability Bow 10th Birthday!

BarbaraOn April 12th we turned 10 and celebrated ten years of Putting the Ability back into disability with our members, colleagues and supporters . We heard some great speeches from several of our members , some new and some who have been attending for ten years! They read their poetry and shared their stories , Barbara Stewart’s poem can be read here You can also watch Ruth's video here  which she so kindly made for us as she couldn't be there in person.

 

Members bought and donated  in our fab raffles and bake sale , new visitors toured the gym with the help of our volunteer guides. All of these wonderful contributions helped make the day a really enjoyable and sucessful celebration , raising some funds along the way too ! We also had fun quizzes and snapped many more #abilitychampions for our gallery (see top left) to learn how to become an #abilitychampion see here

This event was a celebration for all members ,supporters and colleagues past and present to mark this milestone with the people that make AB what it is .  The day was a great testament to the vital work that Ability Bow does and the people that make it.
