If the smiles and giggles are anything to go by, you can see we had another fun, successful and happy Awards Day this year! And, with a growing body of students achieving ever greater things, there was of course much to celebrate.
A special year, indeed, as we also celebrated our Autism Accreditation by the National Autistic Society at the event.
Thank you to Cllr Piers McCausland, the Mayor of Wandsworth, and Marsha de Cordova, our local MP for Battersea and the Shadow Minister for Disabled People, for joining us on our big day and doing the honours by presenting certificates to all our worthy recipients.
Thank you, also, to our partners at Movement Works, who specialise in developmental movement dance and provide a regular movement dance class for students at Share, for getting all our guests moving, jigging and mingling.
New faces join Share's Board of Trustees
Earlier this month we celebrated Trustees' Week. As always, we are immensely grateful to everyone who volunteers their time and share's their experience to help grow Share and make a difference for disabled people.
This year, we've had a number of new trustees join Share's Board, including a new Chair, Kate Heaps. Which, of course, means we say farewell and huge thanks to others, in particular, the outgoing Chair, Bill Morgan, and Phoebe Scriven, who have both supported our work over the past few years.
And, if you ever need any encouragement to become a Trustee, be sure to read Phoebe's engaging article on life as a 'youth trustee' – Trust me, I'm a Trustee!

This month, we also have Diana Sawaya (left) joining the staff team officially. Not really a new face at Share as Diana has been working as a member of our bank staff team for some time, so it is really great to have her on board as our new Independent Living Skills and Art Tutor on a permanent basis.
