Interested in finding out more about disability 1st Mellis Brownies Mellis and Yaxley 1st Guides visited HOPS as part of their syllabus towards their badges.

The Brownies had a fun evening exploring the HOPS building looking for the answers to questions they had been set. Many of the brownies found the sensory room, soft play and ball pool the most exciting areas to be in. They were told about the different ways in which HOPS staff communicate with children with PEC’s symbols around the building helping them explore activities. They learned about different disabilities and talked about their own experience of disability.

The Guides were also set a visual challenge around the setting pulling together their answers from questions sets. They too talked about disability and how this might effect people. Again the Guides enjoyed time in the sensory room and ball pool. They also experienced what it was like to be hoisted, by staff and how scary it can be not being in control of your own movements, but how communication can make the event more pleasurable.

1st Mellis Brownies Mellis and Yaxley 1st Guides had collected coins in in sweet tubes to give to HOPS as a donation.

HOPS would like to say a big Thank you to the brownies and guides for the kind donation of £134.75
