We split up into 3 teams over three lanes and it was game on! There were lots of silly names being but up on the board and the laughter was flowing throughout, this was then followed by 3 sharing platters for supper.

Everyone had a brilliant night with service users saying "it's like a really good night out with your mates, and I can't remember the last time I said that" another saying "the whole house is buzzing after going out, the atmosphere is brilliant" one service user who has limited mobility at the moment due to an injury said "I'll be on bed rest for the rest of the week but it was 100% worth it".

As the team leader of Halsall house it is really nice to see the service users genuinely having a great time and letting there guard down, some of the service users have not been bowling for over 20 years and had forgotten how much fun it can be.

The service users are currently in discussion about what they would like to do for November's recreation event…

Verse of the Day

Sanctuary Trust works with homelessness and homeless related poverty and emergency homeless issues. God's Sanctuary was the vision of Sheila Halsall after seeing the level of homelessness Rochdale and later the homelessness Conwy and the substance misuse such as Drugs and Alcohol. By Providing emergency shelter for the homeless in supported housing services funded mainly through Supporting People we assist other providers such as Shelter homelessness, Petrus and Stepping Stones who are also supporting people through women's and men's hostels and floating support. We also have STEP Emergency overnight provision. With our work in Wales we partner with Welsh Assembly Government (WAG) as they provide financial help for homeless through emergency shelter and their Supporting People funds. There are different kinds of accommodation available but what is needed is good quality supported accommodation with a strong business and development plan. We have also provided consultancy service to help others move closer to an answer to homelessness. Our social enterprise company, Sanctuary Trust Enterprises runs Noah's Ark Play Centre, The Storehouse Charity Shop.
