With Christmas day getting ever so closer, Senior Support Worker, Tamicka Goncalves surprised everyone with a trip to Westfield Shopping Centre for some Christmas shopping.
Some of the people we support are spending Christmas with their families and wanted the opportunity to buy cards and presents. Usually, they would go to the local shops, but Tamicka thought it would be a great idea to use the van to take a trip to somewhere unique. She told us, “Everyone was super excited to get ready, putting on hats and gloves really put them in the Christmas mood. Having our own van made it simple to travel and seeing the Christmas lights filled everyone with joy.”
The Somerford Place team wanted to ensure the full Christmas experience for the people we support. Tamicka said, “It’s so important that the people we support don’t miss out on anything, we want them to experience everything leading up to Christmas, such as going shopping, carol singing and seeing the lights.”
