Capstone South West organised and thoroughly enjoyed their Winter 2018 Ice Skating trip with carers at SKATE Bournemouth. The event received a great turnout including 34 carers and children along with 2 staff members, Nikki Youngs and Antonio Martins on the ice. The weather was challenging however the atmosphere of fun and happiness was resounding. The rink was beautiful, and the festive spirit was very high. The event ran smoothly from start to finish and there were smiles on faces all round. Those who were uneasy on the ice at first managed to master the art with the help of some friendly penguins. This type of event provides a well-deserved break, not only for our carers but for our children and Capstone staff. It allows everyone to have some fun and make friendly connections with other families from across the region. One of our carers commented: “We all enjoyed the ice skating. I enjoyed standing at the side watching and chatting to carers that I hadn't seen for a while. My husband and the girls loved skating. On the way home the girls asked if Capstone would do it again next year. Thank you.” Capstone would like to thank those who attended, and for excelling in all that they do.
