Our student stories and achievements are what make Share what it is...and, often, it is the little changes that we see in our students' lives that are the most significant, and it is these that we celebrate everyday at Share.
Our Annual Awards Ceremony, which takes place on Tuesday 7th November 2017, from 11am to 3.30pm, is our opportunity to share those celebrations with our supporters as well as our students and their friends and families.
So we'd like to invite you to join us to help us celebrate the best of Share with a spot of lunch, and some music and dance...oh and a little Zumba, thanks to our friends at Disability Sports Coach.
Register online for the event, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
or telephone 020 7801 9821 to book your place.

A month of 'firsts' for Go Anywhere, Do Anything
Share's Go Anywhere, Do Anything project celebrated a number of firsts this month – members went on their first overnight trip – camping, no less! And then they took to the tracks for their first international trip to Paris on the Eurostar.
Having received funding for a further three years, we're now looking to providing even more opportunities for our students further afield, and our aim is to run 20% of trips outside of London during this time.
Find out more about these Go Anywhere, Do Anything trips and check out what's on the Go Anywhere, Do Anything calendar for the next few months.
To find out more about Share's Go Anywhere, Do Anything project, contact Leanne Wood, Share's HR, Projects and Volunteer Manager, via email email@example.com or telephone 020 7801 9825.
Share Open Day – focus on independent living
The focus for this year's Open Day held earlier in the month was our Independent Living Skills programme, which we've revamped to cater for the changing needs of our students.
To find out more about Share's Independent Living Skills programme, contact Mikayla Mighton, our My Life Manager, via email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 020 7801 9813.
If you were unable to come along to our Open Day, but would like a copy of our information pack, please contact Jane Wingfield, our Wellbeing Administrator, via email email@example.com or telephone 020 7801 9812.
Promoting healthy living
Share's health and wellbeing programme continues to go from strength to strength – working with those in the local community to promote healthy eating and exercise among our students.
Over the past few weeks Share students took part in Tesco's Farm to Fork Trail (part of Tesco's Eat Happy Project) at Tesco Brixton to learn all about healthy eating. And then they headed off to Battersea Sports Centre to get fit with the help of Disability Sports Coach for Share's Sports Day.
To find out more about our healthy living programme, contact Jenny Bourlet, Share's Healthy Living Coordinator, via email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 020 7801 9813.
Student focus: Djuna
This month, we'd like you to meet Djuna. In the relatively short time he's been at Share, it's been a joy to see him grow in confidence and stature as he finds new ways to communicate, express himself, develop his skills and unlock his potential.
Read Djuna's story to find out how he's getting on in our catering, basic skills and creative writing courses, and even getting out and about with Go Anywhere, Do Anything.
