Young people supported by EACH enjoyed an authentic festival experience at our third annual EACHfest this August.
The event, held at our Milton hospice but open to young people across all localities, featured a samba drumming workshop and a journey through Disney hits by the jazz band Alley Cats. The conference room was transformed into a laid-back festival tent, where the young people enjoyed chilled-out acoustic sessions by local musician Buck Puffin.
A BBQ-style meal and a visit from an ice cream van kept everyone full of energy to try out some juggling skills over lunchtime.
The day finished with mocktails and a group creative activity. In true festival style we had a bit of rain, but at least it held off until close to the end of the day!
Lucy Brumpton, EACH Service Manager, said: “EACHfest aims to provide a social opportunity, for 11-19 year olds who receive care from us, that they might not otherwise experience.
“The live acts this year were out of this world and the energy of staff was breathtaking. It was also great to see rooms transformed for the occasion, with no corners escaping bunting! In true festival style we had rain, but this was saved until the end of the day. We’re now already looking forward to next year!”
