Club Fun is a project led by a group of people we support in Forth Valley. It offers opportunities for people to come together, build friendships and experience new things. The local staff team have been using fundraised money to fund Club Fun and provide the tools and support to organise social activities – from delightful day trips to dazzling discos.

Earlier this year, they went on an exciting trip to Burntisland. The journey – on buses that support staff had decorated with bunting and balloons – was filled with singing and laughing by all. Whilst there, some people enjoyed the beach whilst others headed into town to check out the local sights. Angela, our service manager in Stirling, said:

“there was smiles and happiness all-round!”

Club Fun are holding regular meetings to plan together their future events and trips away. People supported and staff have been coming up with plenty of ideas and so far the suggestions have been: picnics, summer parties and since they had so much fun, another trip to Burntisland.

For now, the group are looking forward to their Club Fun Halloween party at the end of October 2019; they have been planning and organising for months. The event is sure to be wicked with costumes, raffles, music and games.

We’re keeping our eyes peeled in anticipation for what Club Fun do next…
