On August 8th Imagineer are opening their offices to have a bit of fun and raise some money for The Outsiders Tour Bus Fund. We do hope you come along and enjoy your day with us
On 7th May 2015 The Student Social Workers who were on placement with Imagineer did a sponsored walk around Hollingworth lake. The whole way around the lake is around 2.5 miles. Some of Imagineer Staff came along and took part in the walk also.
For part of our fundraising in 2015 Liz Leach and Nigel Murphy climbed Ben Nevis which is is the highest mountain in the British Isles. Standing at 1,344 metres above sea level, it is located at the western end of the Grampian Mountains in the Lochaber area of the Scottish Highlands.
At Imagineer we support people with learning, physical or a mental illness to live a life of their choice in a way that works best for them. We create opportunities that enable people to develop and shape their own aspirations and future. There are over 10 million disabled adults in the UK, 24% of the adult population and nearly 8 million adults of working age have a disability, this is 20% of adult population. Some of these people are unable to use services due to lack of funds with the recent budget cuts from the government therefore, at Imagineer we strive to raise as much money as possible through our fundraising events, aiming to give people the support they want, need and deserve to prevent isolation, social exclusion and encourage empowerment. What may seem the little things to some such as going shopping or meeting new people may be a big thing or difficult to someone else, at Imagineer we understand and value this.
Our Fundraising event ‘The Three Peaks’ North Yorkshire is a great experience where you can take in the sights of the beautiful countryside, visit local towns and have lunch at the local restaurants as well as raise money for a great cause. We aim to do the challenge within one day So far we have 9 people joining us; this is a mixture of staff, student, friends and family of Imagineer. If you are ready for the challenge, pick up the phone and contact Lauren on 01422 363817.
