The challenge nears!
Added Date: 24th April 2018

As the 10 peaks challenge nears, our brave team ups their training in order to improve their endurance before the big day! With just 25 days to go until the event, the team decided to take on a 10 mile training session in Anglezarke, near Rivington. I was lucky enough to be invited along, to get a feel for what the challenge might entail – to say it was hard work would be an understatement! The route covered 10 miles of beautiful countryside, copious amounts of mud and so much uphill that the very thought of climbing a set of stairs later that night struck fear into me!

It gave me a great insight into the views of each of the participants, and shed light on their reasons for wanting to raise money for Embrace, mostly because of all of the support that is offered through different services, the support that could be offered to different people and the positive outcomes that had been achieved.

This is why I thought I would w...

When you go on holiday...
Added Date: 11th July 2017

Hello everyone, it is Ella back with another blog, which this time is about when you go on holiday to a hotel that had said it was accessible on the booking form, but when you get there, you find that it isn’t accessible enough to make it adapted to make you feel independent. I hope you enjoy!

I have just got back off holiday from Rhodes, which was amazing. I loved the holiday, apart from the fact that the pools were layered, which meant they had steps and ramps. The steps and ramps were re...
