What do you get if you combine a silent disco, karaoke, a zoo, Christmas tree decorating and a smoothie bike?
The MacIntyre North Roadshow, of course!
Returning once again to the Daresbury Hotel in Warrington this year, the North Roadshow was host to people from various services in MacIntyre. Featuring 40 zones representing the different areas of MacIntyre, the North Roadshow was alive with fun, games, laughter and many opportunities for the people we support to try something new and win lots of prizes.
Great Interactions were witnessed throughout the day as staff and the people we support shared ideas, interacted and met new people for the first time. Some even put themselves in a situation they never thought possible as they put their fears to the test and held a snake, tarantula and other live animals in the mini zoo hosted by the Great Interactions team.
We were also lucky to be joined by representatives from Learning Disability England, who tasked the people that visited their zone to create a mini placard answering the question ‘What do we want?’.
Jo Allmond and Jess Hiles, authors of the well-known book series Jess the Goth Fairy also joined the North Roadshow to sell their two books, Jess the Goth Fairy and Jess Makes a New Friend, as well as to raise awareness of their upcoming third book.
The success of the North Roadshow will be continued at the South Roadshow next week, on 8th December at the Towcester Racecourse. We are also still offering the chance for potential recruitment candidates to visit the Roadshow to see what MacIntyre does in practice and to demonstrate why MacIntyre is an employer of choice. If you’d like to join us next week, book your place.
We can’t wait to see what the South Roadshow has to offer!
