It has been a busy few months at Share, with our summer event season in full flow. 

In the past two months, we took part in Open Garden Squares Weekend, and hosted our Summer Garden and Evening in the Garden parties.

These events give us an opportunity to show off our lovely garden and the work our students do at Share, and connect with the local and wider community. It is also a chance for students' families and friends to share and enjoy a small part of their life at Share.

Share Catering TeamThe events also allow us at Share – in some small way – to say Thank You to all those who continue to support us throughout the year, whether it be by sponsoring an event, donating money or time, buying plants or using our social enterprise services.

So Thank You for being part of this very special and caring community!

A summer of FreeSport

Share's first FreeSport sessionShare held the first of 20 FreeSport sessions on 19th July 2016 following receipt of £1500 as part of the Mayor of London's FreeSport small grant scheme which is run in association with Coca-Cola Zero ParkLives.

This funding will help to provide 20 sessions of yoga and dance over 10 weeks from July to October for Share students as part of Share's health and wellbeing programme, which aims to promote the benefits of healthy eating and exercise for all.

Share students take to the stage with London Symphony Orchestra (LSO)

Throughout the year, once a month, a number of Share students take part in LSO Create for people with learning disabilities where they go to create music with professional musicians. 

It was therefore a great pleasure to see three of our students – Vishal, Amal and Rehan –take to the stage on 1st July 2016 to perform in concert with muscians from the LSO and the Guildhall School. 

The brief was to create three new pieces of music to complement the performance of three movements from Britten’s Cello Suite No 1.

Could this be Beyoncé's Number 1 fan?

Well, there was great excitement at Share when Jordan got his ticket for the Beyoncé concert as part of Share's Go Anywhere, Do Anything programme. Lots of singing and dancing was heard and seen around the building in anticipation of the big night...and no wonder!

As Jordan headed out to the concert with Social Buddy, Karen, we found out this was to be Jordan's first ever live concert, and as Beyoncé's Number 1 fan, who better to see than the queen of song and dance? So how was it? In Jordan's words: 'really awesome', and he said he spent the whole evening singing along to all the songs. Karen commented afterwards that seeing Beyoncé with her Number 1 fan was a very special way to celebrate her 10th trip volunteering with Share Go Anywhere, Do Anything.

Jordan is a keen musician and singer himself, having first learned to play the piano a few years back, and he is currently undertaking guitar and singing lessons each week. Speaking about the future, Jordan says he'd like to do something in music in life, and says stars such as Beyoncé inspire him to do something good in his life.
