On Thursday 24th August we finished four weeks of HAF provision in Marple!
A massive well done to the whole team for providing a great range of activities, care & fun for our local children. We were so grateful to have our biggest team yet working this year! We had our three summer interns from MMU, Ciara, Marcus & Nigel. Along with our HAF favourites Gemma, Lee & Antony, we also had new recruit Nicola and we ran collaborative workshops with Jen Samani & Stockport County.
Here's a run-down of what we did and what our staff enjoyed about HAF & their favourite Pies this summer:
Here's what Gemma (PIE Community Lead) had to say:
"I feel like HAF takes you through every single emotion pushes you to the brink then fills you with love when they give you a hug! Working with the most amazing, supportive team has made the summer really special."
And Beth said:
"We have had another great summer of fun - my favourite memories have been walking along the canal in the sunshine and enjoying the beautiful local surroundings in Marple, and also just seeing the young people supporting and caring for each other. Some young people who we have worked with now for three years have grown up so much and it has been a pleasure to be a small part of their journey!"
Well done to all the HAF team, and a big thank you to Anne and Bob and the team at Start Point for providing us with delicious lunches (and a couple of chippy treats!) throughout the summer.
