I currently work for an organisation that works 24 hours a day 7 days a week 365 days a year to support people residentially with severe learning disabilities, at the support unit i work at, i support three individuals, that are unable to follow out the basic tasks one their own that we take for granted. However tht being said one thing each of them are fantastic at is pool. They currently have a little put me up pool table, in their garage. I do take them to our local pool club though and they are really amazaingly talented at it, and eventually i would love to help them start up a pool team, because i see no reason why they cant. it would be their dream to have a proper pool table they can use properly without it falling over or to bits, to practice something they feel proud of, and feel important over. i want to teach them that they can do anything they put their mind to, yes they might need support, but they dont need care.
so im starting up this campaign to try and raise as much money as i can to give these poeple the best christmas they generally will have ever had.
To give you a little background for the last 11 years ive worked in the sales and marketing industry, and i worked with a few amazing people that i really respected, however i wanted to have a career that allowed me to help others more. i would generally would never look back, and tis campagn im running is just the start of making a difference to the people i support.
Help spread the word!
