Monthly Roundup - February 2024

Written by: ISL

February and early March has been a time of charity momentum with our staff, clients and local charity partners. An incredible steps challenge was completed by the Macclesfield service, and a heart warming valentines coffee morning with the Chester service. More charity events are underway for March and information on these events and donation support will be shared on our news page. Several birthday celebrations were shared by services, progressive health and well-being momentum from January, and some positive socials and outings rounded off the month.
