Speak Out in Hounslow Celebrates its Achievements
Audience participation is encouraged at this unusual AGM
Speak Out in Hounslow is a leading local charity that supports adults with learning disabilities. This Wednesday it held its AGM at the London Museum of Water and Steam which provides a marvellous, if sometimes noisy for this genuinely enjoyable event.
Speak Out is supported by many sponsors, and those who had representatives present, like the National Lottery got a loud round of applause. Thanks also go to Brentford FC Community Sports Trust, Grow Wild, LB Hounslow, Cultivate London amongst others.
Nick was a marvellous Master of Ceremonies and talked about all the fabulous things that Speak Out has done and plans to do in the future.
From this September Speak Out will be running own adult education from September which will include:
Steve spoke on travel training where he works with clients to become more travel confident and able to do important journeys on their own.
Liz organises outings and taster sessions. Her aim (and what a job description!) is to give everyone a good time. In the last year she organised over 300 outings including lunches, bowling, legoland, art gallery, Chessington, theatre, cinema, live music, golf, sky garden, plane spotting at Renaissance Hotel Hounslow. Liz is great at persuading companies to offer their facilities for free or at reduced prices.
The "Five Minute" Play lasted much longer but quickly had all the audience in stitches.
After Afternoon Tea the Line Dancing group showed off their skills and members of the audience attempted to join in.
Visit Speak Out's website and see what they do.
Speak Out in Hounslow supports adults with learning disabilities to Speak Out and be heard.
