Merchant Taylors’ and St. Helen’s Phab Week
Merchant Taylors’ and St. Helen’s Schools in Middlesex hosted another successful residential Phab Week in April. Students and staff warmly welcomed 21 young people who have a disability or are disadvantaged in some way for a fun-packed week together. Everyone had a wonderful time enjoying amongst many other things horse riding, the climbing wall, planting a sensory garden, arts and crafts, an amazing musical workshop with Electric Umbrella, and a visit to Thames Valley Park.
This is what one mother said to the students and staff after collecting her daughter, “Thank you so much for everything that you do for our children/young adults, I know my daughter had an amazing week, made new friends and did some lovely things. You are a real credit, without your help and commitment there are limited places for our children/young adults to go.”
And we are immensely grateful to Renee Nosmis who for her 50th birthday chose to motorcycle 4,000 miles across New Zealand in aid of Phab. Sponsorship money raised is being split between the Merchant Taylor's and St Helen's residential week and Phab for its own Inclusive Living Experience Residential Projects during 2019.
