With beer garden evenings, coffee catch ups, and a good old hug seeming like a distant memory, we have some hope on the horizon and are looking forward to reconnecting with friends and family. Staff at Thera East Midlands want to celebrate by creating an event to support people with a learning disability to reform bonds of friendship and family.
On Monday 22 March, Thera East Midlands’ Senior Management team are setting off to walk a total of 131 miles over two weeks to raise money for a celebration event. This event will reunite the people we support and reform bonds of friendship and family that have been separated for so long. 131 miles is the distance between the two furthest houses of the people we support, and represents the distance felt by lockdown, isolation, and shielding.
