Worklink Cottingham will hold its Christmas fayre on Monday, 9 December from 10am-2pm and members of the public are invited to browse the many items that have been made by people with learning disabilities.
Worklink provides employment training for adults with learning disabilities from their sites in Cottingham and Sewerby. It uses a dedicated training programme called a vocational profile to complement the practical skills that they deliver in areas including hospitality and catering, woodwork and horticulture.
Debbie Pratt, interim team leader at Worklink Cottingham, said: “The team at Worklink has worked very hard this season to make a range of beautifully hand-crafted Christmas items for people to browse or buy.
“Their talents and abilities are really astounding and it is such a pleasure to see the amazing creations they produce all through the year.
“Service users all have an ability to have an input, working collaboratively and accomplishing exceptional creations.”
On sale at the Christmas fayre will be hand-crafted decorations, homemade baking, Christmas wreaths as well as wooden Christmas wreaths, homemade Christmas cards and a tombola, all made and organised by adults with learning disabilities.
The café Alfresco will be open as normal but only drinks, confectionary and cold sandwiches will be on offer for this day only.
