A free day out and a charity that empowers people – Feelgood Saturday 4th February

Skidmarques‘ MD Keith Playell popped by again this morning to give us the latest news on their big Open Day next Sunday afternoon to celebrate the company’s move to bigger premises. As well as some classic cars, a hog roast and cupcake decorating for the children there’ll also be free wine and soft drinks, a display by BNI and live music courtesy of Flaming Pie; and hopefully AmD Milltek’s VW Golf for the British Touring Car Championship will also be on display. Brentwood Mayor Cllr Joan Holmes will kick it all off at 2pm at Unit 7 on the Everik Business Centre in Prospect Way, Hutton.

I was also joined this morning by Alicia Quispé-Flores, from the independent advocacy service BATIAS, a charity which empowers people with learning disabilities throughout south Essex. Alicia explained that a learning disability means that a person’s ability to learn new things is impaired, and that BATIAS helps people cope with a range of issues – from crisis situations involving housing or finance to learning new social skills or trying new activities – using three different styles of activity. One of these they call Citizen Advocacy, where a trained volunteer supports the client in a particular way, such as learning new skills or going out shopping. The need for BATIAS has never been greater, and they also need help with fundraising, with the first meeting of their new Fundraising Committee taking place at the Beehive in Grays on 29th February. If you’d like to offer yourself as a volunteer, with the opportunity to make new friends in the process; or you can help with fundraising;  or if you, or someone you know, could benefit from what BATIAS can offer, contact Alicia on 01375 389869. You can also follow BATIAS on twitter @BATIAS.
