All the fun of the fair

Dominic, one of the gentlemen we support at Affinity Supporting People, paid a visit to the local Easter Fair recently.


He enjoyed a candy floss snack and enjoyed a few of the stalls – winning a goldfish.


It was a lovely sunny day and Dom thoroughly enjoyed his day out.







Hollywood calls for Affinity duo

Shane and Paul, two of the gentlemen we support at Affinity attended a recent event with a red carpet twist.


The duo were attending a Meet ‘n’ Match Hollywood fancy dress party. Meet ‘n’ Match is a friendship and dating agency for people with a learning disability.


Paul went as Fast & Furious star Vin Diesel, and Shane as one of the Men in Black and looked every inch the stars.



Thousands raised for a charity close to Vici's heart

Affinity Supporting People’s Vici Beardsworth has helped to raise an estimated 15,000 to support the family of a baby girl with a serious illness.


Around two months ago Vici’s friends, the family of four-month-old baby Inaaya Shabbir, found out the tot was suffering from Wolmans Disease – a rare genetic disease that causes malnutrition and other serious side-effects.


Vici and her daughters, Mia and Ellie Family and friends in both Accrington – where Inaaya’s mother is from – and Birmingham – where the family now live – are trying to raise funds to pay for the treatment which costs more than £6,000 per week.


So far a JustGiving page set up by Vici has raised almost £11,000, with more funds raised in other ways.


The most recent event organised by Vici was a walk from Accrington to Blackburn overnight, which raised more than £2,000.


Now the fundraisers are planning an event on April 29 at the Brooks Club in Accrington which will feature entertainment from a DJ, karaoke and raffle prizes.


Vici, who has also written to the Government’s health minister, Jeremy Hunt, to flag up the situation, said: “Communities in Lancashire and Birmingham have been amazing in their support of this wonderful little girl and her family.

“It’s been so heart-warming to see so many people helping so much, and I’d call on anyone who can get involved to take a look at our fundraising pages online and join us at our next event.”

Paul and Shane, two of the gentlemen we support at Affinity, spent time recently shopping in Manchester.


The pair took in the city’s shops and enjoyed the sites before heading back home.




DJ Shane entertains

Shane, one of the gentlemen we support at Affinity, is a real fan of music and a talented DJ.


Known as DJ Dynamite, Shane regularly supplies music and light production at popular ‘Meet ‘n’ Match’ events around Lancashire – a friendship and dating agency for people with learning disabilities.


Shane is keen to carry on developing his DJ-ing skills and raise the roof at local discos, and Affinity is more than happy to support him.
