People with learning disabilities in Ayr gathered at St Paul’s Church on Tuesday 15 May to mark Scotland Learning Disability Week.
This year, the theme for the week is ‘My generation’. The Scottish Commission for Learning Disability have been encouraging people to take part in their ‘Show and tell’ campaign, asking that people think about things that were important to them when they were growing up.
The St Paul’s group adapted this, deciding to focus on what was important in people’s lives right now.
Everyone there made their own poster about what was important to them and had the chance to present it to everyone on the night.
What was important ranged from family, friends and socialising to people’s cars, TVs – and even the Chuckle Brothers.
Support Manager Scott Devin, who runs the club, says: “We had lots of laughs and I even had a wee tear as I realised how important the club that I run was important to the people we support.”
The group meets from 6 to 8.45pm every Tuesday at St Paul’s Church in Peggieshill Place in Ayr, and people with learning disabilities and their families and carers are all welcome. Contact Scott at Ayrshireclub@affinitytrust.org for more information.
