Adult Activity Weekends
Our Adult Activity Weekends are always oversubscribed. As well as the chance to try something new, the weekends offer plenty of time for our adults to sit and talk to others who live with A-T. For many this is almost the most important part of the weekend.
In September 2017 we headed off to the Bendrigg Trust activity centre in the Lake District where our adults had the opportunity to canoe on Lake Windermere, climb and abseil the indoor climbing wall, compete in a tough archery challenge and overcome their fears by zipping down the zip wire. Evenings spent round the campfire toasting marshmallows and s’mores provided a chance to chat and catch up.
One of the most amazing places I’ve been to. Facilities, activities, accommodation etc are second to none. The compassion and enthusiasm of all the staff and volunteers was captivating, humbling and genuinely amazing. Seeing people overcome their fears, accomplish new things and jump so far from their comfort zone was so inspirational.
