Debbie, a member at The Maltings, said: “I know things are difficult for people and when I first came back I did find it hard that things were different than they were before, but I am used to it now and I love being back.”
We also heard from one of our support workers Toby who said: “The team have pulled together and welcomed back the people we support, I’m looking forward to seeing some familiar faces as the weeks go on.”
The Maltings also received a generous donation of £285 from Fakenham Auto club, who have been fundraising for them for the last three years. The club has also chosen The Maltings to be their charity of the year for another year.
Dennis, from Fakenham Auto Club, said: “In 2018 our chosen Charity of the Year was the Fitzroy day service, The Maltings. We began our fundraising efforts with great enthusiasm after visiting The Maltings and being inspired by what we saw.”
“We were very pleased to be able to make a record-breaking donation at the end of that year, and, after The Maltings had such a lasting impression on us, we selected them as our charity of the year for the second time this year.”
Kerensa added: “We were so pleased when we received the donation from Fakenham Auto Club, the money means so much, especially during these times. We plan to use the donation towards our sensory room, which we will turn into a more modern sensory space for the people we support.”
