Our Chair of Trustees, Dr Stephen Large writes
I am delighted to share with you our Enrych Annual Report, celebrating 30 years of supporting disabled people. I think it is a remarkable document. To me it is extraordinary how much we have achieved. It is good to be able to talk about so many success stories, and areas of growth, despite the difficult economic climate. I would personally like to thank everyone who has been a part of this success, and especially to those who have shared their stories here.
Do you enjoy a stroll around the park in Swindon?
We have 2 lovely ladies with visual impairments and some mobility issues who need a volunteer once or twice a month to spare an hour to accompany them for a walk around the local parks in Old Town, Swindon. They enjoy a chat and fresh air but are not confident to do this on their own. If you would like an excuse to get out and have a cup of tea, a chat and enjoy our parks then please get in touch with Jo Heaven, Enrych Project Co-ordinator on 07771804365 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
