Inclusive music festival comes to Standish

A very special music festival is coming to My Life this July. We’ve teamed up with our colleagues at My Life My Way to host a fully inclusive festival, aimed at disabled adults.

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, tickets are just £5 per person per day, which is amazing value. It will include: live music from two stages, comedy tent, UV rave, Big Bubble Man, festival hair and makeup, festival crafts, African drumming workshop, accessible football, marshmallow toasting and a human fruit machine!

Get your tickets now now, as once they’re gone, they’re gone!

Yes that’s right, because your young’uns have yet to dip their toes into the watery world of adult life, they get holidays every five minutes! This means that despite being off at the time of writing this post, there is another school holiday break just around the corner!

Fear not though dear parents, My Life has you covered. We will take your little cherubs off your hands and treat them to a day of such unbelievable fun that they will come home and look at their Xbox like it’s worth nothing more than putting a cup of tea on.

“How will you do this?” you ask. Well, using our patented combination of outdoorsy staff, chickens and laughter, we will delight your children with the following activities: Buschraft, Baking, Trampolining, Archery, Kite Flying, Arts, Crafts, Woodland Adventures and much more!

To book, call 01257 472900 or email sian.bint@my-life.org.uk

They did it!

Although we never doubted that our intrepid explorers would conquer Mount Jebel Toubkal, it’s such a relief to have them finally back home safe! I’m sure you can’t wait to catch up with them for tales of their life-changing experiences, but it doesn’t stop there. Over the next few weeks they are planning to:

– write about their own personal journeys and publish a book
– get the best deal on a minibus, with the £15k they raised
– hold a Moroccan evening to celebrate their amazing achievements, and
– plan their next adventure, and open it up to more people

Well done everyone! Watch this space…I’m exhausted just writing about it
