Celebrating Burn’s Night!

25th January 2016

 

Traditional Haggis, neeps and tatties were on the menu for those at The Hub as we recently celebrated Burn’s Night.

Our Hub facility is the gateway to the community for people with learning disabilities in Uttoxeter and the event saw over 20 of our clients gather together to enjoy a delicious Scottish meal, poems by Robert Burns and some famous pastimes.

Burn’s Night is a Scottish tradition celebrated each year on January 25th. The occasion, which marks the birth date of famous poet Robert Burns, celebrates Scottish roots, identity and culture along with Burn’s poetry.

Tracey Fletcher, managing director at DE Healthcare, said: “Celebrating landmark dates in the calendar such as Burn’s Night are a great opportunity for our clients to learn about other cultures and traditions. The Hub is a place that offers people with learning disabilities a gateway into the community and can be used as a drop-in service or simply to socialise and meet new people. It’s important that those with complex disabilities are given the chance to take part in the activities that interest them most and our clients often play a pivotal part in organising and running evenings such as this. The hub is a facility that we want people in the community and wider regions to use, shape and make their own, depending on their needs.

“Working with people with learning disabilities is an extremely rewarding career and we’re like one big family here at DE Healthcare. As a family-run organisation, this is one of our key values and if you’re looking for a career change or new challenge, we’re currently recruiting for several support workers to join our growing team of fifty passionate carers across Staffordshire. “
