National disability charity, United Response, would like to welcome members of the public to the 10th anniversary party of its service in North Tyneside.

The celebrations will take place on 24th September, from 7-11pm at Whitley Bay Rugby Club at a small charge of £3.00 per ticket to attend.

It will be a fun-filled evening including a tasty buffet dinner, live disco and tombola, as well as VIP guests.

United Response supports people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, autism and mental health needs to live the lives they choose.

It’s service in North Tyneside support two young men, who are on the autistic spectrum and both have learning disabilities and are non-verbal, to live a house specially-adapted to suit their needs.

A fundraising event last year managed to draw in enough funds to build a sensory garden to the two men, which has made a huge difference to their wellbeing. 

Sensory garden

This time, United Response is hoping to raise £2,500 for a hot tub to go in the service’s sensory garden.

The two men supported at the service both currently benefit from using a hydro pool, but this is expensive to rent. With their own hot tub, they would be able to experience the same benefits in the comfort of their own garden.

Carolyn Palmer, United Response’s Service Manager, said:

“The event is intended to celebrate the amazing care provided at our North Tyneside service over the past decade, as well as raise funds to further improve the lives of the people we support. We expect it will be a fantastic occasion and would like to encourage anyone in the area to enjoy the party with us.”

If you would like to attend the event, please call Carolyn on 07935837321 or Jennifer 0784893761.

Please book by 19th September to ensure your place at the event.
