WHAT WE’ VE BEEN UP TO
There is so much happening at BPCA every day, here are a few highlights
SEPTEMBER DAY TRIPS
We had so much fun visiting the South Norwood Country Park and Wildspace Conservation Park in the past weeks! Everyone enjoyed spending time outdoors, picking apples and seeing the trees changing to their Autumn colours!
In September we organised a plant sale in partnership with Ayoka, the neighbouring charity shop. All of the chilli plants were grown by our users and some of the pots were even handpainted by them in our arts classes. We set up a stall and spent a few hours chatting with locals until we sold everything 🙂 All of the income went towards our users’ birthday gifts fund.
AUGUST SPORTS DAY
We enjoyed a full day of playing games outdoors, with everyone participating, having fun and winning a medal.
