“Kirsty always has a smile. She loves to be involved…” And Kirsty has been involved with Stockdales community Service for over 8 years.
Kirsty’s Dad, David, said, “When Kirsty was 2.5 years old she attended Pictor House. Since then, Kirsty has been to a number of different places, but Stockdales has always stood out. The facilities are good, but it is the people that make all the difference. Kirsty has very little communication but she is a watcher. She loves to be involved and will push her own wheelchair to get the best view of what’s going on.”
Sandie Champs, who runs our Lifeskills Day Service, at Navigation Road, in Altrincham, said, “Kirsty absolutely loves music, particularly the band that come every Monday – she sings along at the top of her voice, and will even dance in her wheelchair.”
David added, “Life Skills has a sense of community, everyone joins in and Kirsty hates to miss out if she can’t come. When Kirsty broke her leg, a little while ago, it was Sandy and the team at Stockdales who stepped in and secured the right transport.” Sandy said, “Kirsty’s smile lights up the room, and her laughter is so infectious. She’s a little ray of sunshine”.
We think this so too, Kirsty!
