Noah’s Art return to the Inspire Centre

 

A big thank you to the folks at Noah’s A.R.T for another fun filled session with their wonderful animals! This time we met the two very friendly English spot rabbits, fed the guinea pigs, had a cuddle with the rats and watched the dog complete a puzzle for treats. Our members really enjoy these sessions as it’s a rare chance to get up close and personal to a number of different animals, as well as share the experience with other members. It’s especially beneficial for those who have sight and mobility issues, and who are able to enjoy the experience through touch, and texture and sound. We are looking forward to welcoming them back again soon.

Befriending Story – Louise

  Hear some first hand experience from one of our fantastic befrienders! I joined Levenshulme Good Neighbours when I moved to Levenshulme earlier in the year. I was new to the area, with no roots here and wanted a constructive way to use my time while settling into life in Manchester. I was paired with… Continue Reading
