Phoenix Support Does Butlins!
Written by Kelly Murphy on 28th October 2015
Five Service Users and staff from Phoenix Support LTD venture to Bognor Regis for a weekend of fun and laughs!
Service Users and staff from one of Phoenix Support’s properties visited Butlins, Bognor Regis recently. They organised the trip themselves, by planning accommodation, the dates in which they intended to go, how much spending money they would need, what items they would need to take with them and who would be able to go on the trip.
Once everything was agreed, the group of five travelled to Bognor Regis for their 3 night stay.
Whilst there, everyone took part in playing miniature golf on the site. Even though there was typical English weather, they did not miss the opportunity to visit the local beach, have a paddle, and try their luck at throwing stones into the sea.
The highlight of the trip, particularly for one of the male Service Users, was the wrestling show provided as evening entertainment. Everyone got to watch the matches and the Service Users particularly enjoyed being able to cheer and jeer at the ‘goodies’ and the ‘baddies’! One Service User was also lucky enough to be able to meet one of the wrestlers and have his programme signed by him.
Tracey Mansell, Team Leader, said: ‘This particular Service User was in his element the night of the wrestling – his face was lit up the whole time he was watching it. He was a little nervous to meet one of the wrestlers, but we encouraged him to go and get his programme signed, and afterwards, his smile never left his face! Everyone was so happy and content when they were getting involved, and it made me feel humbled to be a part of it.’
