My two colleagues and I have just come from dropping off donations at  Emmeline’s Pantry. Here at Macc we decided that one of the ways we could practice what we preach is by supporting a local Christmas Appeal, we asked for suggestions and picked at random.

John and Pete were participating in a Having a Voice session at Back on Track on Tuesday. The course is all about getting your voice heard and how to put yourself across. Last week, the group grilled Kate, a Back on Track manager about how the charity works and this week, all 11 members of the group gave a short presentation on a subject of their choice such as films they enjoy or hobbies. This allowed them to practise speaking in front of a group in a safe and friendly environment.
