We host a number of social activities throughout the year. Some of these are for carers only and usually involve meals out, and carers-only trips which are very popular. We also have family coach trips – a popular one is the visit to Adventure Island in Southend. Every Christmas many of us go to the pantomime at Sir James Hawkey Hall (Oh yes we do!) This is a family event which is enjoyed by everyone. All activities are subsidised by STAAR so members just pay a contribution.
From time to time we hold parties, at Christmas or special occasions. We celebrated our 10th anniversary with a party which was a lot of fun!
We encourage our members to put forward ideas for future events.
