Our team at REACT had a great night at the Rock ‘n’ Roll themed Gala Dinner held at the Grand Hotel in Blackpool on Thursday 13 September 2018.
With attendees of between 50 to 60 people present, the evening aimed to raise funds to support next years Self Advocacy Conference.
Stephen Smith (pictured), a previous winner of the Deric Russell Award for Outstanding Leadership in 2016, really got into the spirit of the night by dressing up as a Teddy Boy. He even managed to win himself a signed Manchester city program in the raffle!
Congratulations also to Sarah McDermott from our service who only went and bagged the top prize of two places at next year’s conference in the Raffle too! Well done!
Everyone had a great night catching up with friends and colleagues. We are looking forward to next year’s conference and celebrating the work of all advocates doing a great job for people with learning disabilities across the North West.
