WISH North Wales – Summer Social

 

WISH North Wales Summer Social with a difference on 14th June was a great success thank you to everyone that came along to our Summer Garden Party and got involved in all the action and games.

 

This year we decided to host something a little bit different with a selection of team building activities including a one hundred foot long assault course, gladiator dual and outdoor games including rounders. It was an adrenalin and fun filled team building event with something for everyone and we are delighted that everyone who attended enjoyed all the activities.

 

The event raised over £200 for our chosen charity Gorwel, a Business Unit within Grŵp Cynefin. Gorwel’s main focus is to provide support services in the field of domestic violence and homelessness prevention. Gorwel‘s projects include refuges, supported housing schemes, children and young people services, support in the community and independent domestic violence advisory service.

 

Thank you to our hosts for the evening, Care & Repair North East Wales (CARNEW) and their fantastic facilities based at Rowley's Drive, Shotton. CARENEW is a service which provides advice and practical assistance to older or disabled people regarding repairs, improvements or adaptations to their homes. Their aim is to provide a quality service to enable older or disabled people to remain independent in their own homes in safety, comfort, warmth and security.
