Cracking Christmas market marks a milestone
In the first large event to be held at Kingarth, in Greater Manchester, the team wanted to celebrate and mark just how far the individuals supported and team have come and how well they are doing. People supported at Kingarth spent the last four weeks planning and preparing for their ‘Kingarth Christmas market’. Through creating and running a tombola stall, cake stall, lucky dip, tin-can alley and a raffle, they raised a fabulous £160.00 which is going to be donated to Cancer Research and a local homeless charity. They had a fantastic day and Adam, manager of the service remarked how wonderful it was to see everyone having such a great time.
Thank you to those who took time out of your day to attend, it was much appreciated.
Kingarth provides a nursing led residential service to support males with learning disabilities, autism and complex needs, including mental health issues and additional nursing needs.

There is also a focus on people being active in the community, to enjoy leisure and social opportunities of their choice, attend college to learn new skills and take up voluntary work in the local area.
