1Voice Lancs 18+ Bowling Party

Young adults using AAC got together for a friendly (but still competitive!) game of bowling. It was difficult to communicate too well over the music and sound of pins clattering, but everyone still managed a quick chat and decided that it might be better to go somewhere quieter next time

1Voice Lancs Christmas Party

1Voice Lancs had a fantastic turn out of AAC users, families and supporters to their Christmas Party. 

We opened with a “getting to know you” quiz, getting everyone chatting and finding out about each other. We had a few brave people who didn’t know anyone else when they first arrived, but they soon made new friends.

There were several activities to choose from:

Making a Christmas dinner placemat; making a snowman; decorating a Christmas biscuit and writing a Christmas card. We also had a suggested design for our branch logo.

The role models gave speeches to the younger children and then invited everyone up for a dance at the disco (with a few renditions of Let it Go! ). Party snacks were available.

Finally there was a visit from Father Christmas who had presents for all the ­children.

It was lovely to welcome new members to the group and everyone made our first event a warm and friendly success.
