It was so exciting to meet up with some of the youngsters from Smile For Life children's charity who we have supported for over six years now.
Their Cafe Beam is now open in Gosforth and supports young adults with disabilities and learning difficulties. They enjoy a shift at the cafe giving them important skills independence, confidence, a safe and secure place to work and also helps their self esteem. They also have a youth group on a Thursday and soon the Tuesday club will be open too. the children have all missed each other and next week they are holding a getting back together event so they can all meet up.
