Open day high­lights SUSO’s spe­cial qual­i­ties

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

A CHAR­ITY which is run with and for adults with learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties hosted a suc­cess­ful open day.

SUSO is a Mac­cles­field or­gan­i­sa­tion that pro­motes friend­ship, well­be­ing, skills and con­fi­dence among mem­bers with dis­abil­i­ties.

Mem­bers in­vited guests to go along and see the work they do and how the char­ity ben­e­fits the com­mu­nity.

They also hosted a raf­fle and mys­tery bot­tle tombola, and served an ar­ray of de­li­cious cakes.

Me­gan Pos­sart, who is the ‘five ways to well­be­ing’ co-or­di­na­tor at SUSO, said: “We are re­ally proud of what we have here at SUSO. We of­fer a warm and wel­com­ing en­vi­ron­ment for peo­ple with learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties, a place where peo­ple can join in with fun ac­tiv­i­ties and so­cial events, but most im­por­tantly a place peo­ple can just be­long.”

The char­ity also wel­comed Mac­cles­field Mayor Bev­er­ley Doo­ley, who ex­cited drop­perin­ners by let­ting them all try on her of­fi­cial chain of of­fice.
