News of our bumper calendar of festive events was recently featured in The Worthing Herald and on the In Your Area website. 

The articles describe how the seasonal festivities organised by our team raised the spirits of the people we support and staff, helping to give all the 'feel-good factor' this Christmas.

The features highlight how the Aspens team wanted to end the challenging year of 2020 on a high note by organising a bumper calendar of fun activities through December with such activities as the most festive space and bake competitions, Christmas jumper day, the virtual Christmas service and our Merry Quizmas virtual fundraiser. 

The articles quote our CEO Robert Shanahan, who said: “It has been a challenging year and the people we care for have been some of the hardest hit by Covid-19 in our society. I am extremely proud of the hard work and dedication the Aspens team has shown in the most difficult of circumstances. We felt this year, more than ever, it was hugely important to encourage some seasonal jollity, so we came up with a calendar full of festive feel-good events that both our staff and the people we support could enjoy.
