Leighton Buzzard Mencap Summer Club

This week I was privileged to visit Leighton Buzzard Mencap’s Summer Club.  I watched an amazing professionally run drama/dance workshop which resulted in eighteen children with varying additional needs putting on a ten minute show after much joyful rehearsal; such laughter and fun was had by all.  At the same time, of course, the parents/carers had a much needed period of respite during the long summer holidays.

It was also brilliant to see the enthusiasm of the young volunteers from a local school who grew in confidence in their interactions with the children during the day.  I spoke in particular to one young lad who was part way through his teacher training course, specialising in Special Educational Needs.  He had found his vocation through helping at the Summer Club as a volunteer several years ago.

The  found the whole experience extremely positive and moving. Any sponsorship for my gratitude walk of the Pilgrims’ Way to go towards the continuation of this summer club would be gratefully received and put to extremely good use.
