Quiztastic

The Hilton Newbury North came up trumps yet again with the hosting of a fantastic quiz night.

It was the first time The Hilton have hosted a quiz at their Newbury North hotel. Sam Farmer, Manager, did a sterling job as compere and the questions were just the right balance for most people on the night!
Our very own Laura Lewis and Sara East and their team members named the ‘Quiztina Aguilera Team’ came first for the second time running.
A total of more than £525 was raised which will go towards equipping our new sensory room at our new site once this is finalised.
Thank You to everyone at The Hilton who made it such a fun evening – yet again! Not to mention the delicious curry and chocolate brownies.

Super Summer

The six week holidays have flown past at Swings & Smiles with us offering short breaks, outreach sessions and lots of family play at the centre.

We’ve had a great time travelling about in our van, kindly funded by Global Make Some Noise. Swings & Smiles – Out & About has seen us travel around the South of England delivering sensory play sessions in Witney, RAF Benson and Bushey in Hertfordshire.
Our short break sessions have also been popular, we have provided 26 hours of support for families at this sometimes stressful time of year. Children that attended these sessions did so without their parents or siblings and took part in cooking, art and lots of playing.
For the team at Swings & Smiles the summer holidays has been full of super families (new and old), masses of fun and some fabulous memories. We’re already looking forward to next year!
