Lifeworks staff take to the sky

Lifeworks Skydive

Skydiving fundraising for a new sensory room

Three remarkable staff members from our Torquay Adult Learning Disability residential home, Sesame, along with a dedicated parent, embarked on an awe-inspiring journey to raise funds for a cause close to their hearts—a new sensory room. Their adventure took them to the skies, where they soared like never before at SkydiveBuzz – Dunkeswell

Meet Joanne, Stacey, and John, the compassionate staff members who work tirelessly to create a nurturing environment for the residents they care for. Their commitment to enhancing the quality of life for adults with learning disabilities knows no bounds. Alongside them was Sarah, a parent who has witnessed the positive impact of the residential home on her child’s life

The freefall was a breathtaking moment, an exhilarating rush of adrenaline that mirrored the heights of their dedication to their cause. As parachutes opened and they glided back to solid ground, their smiles could have lit up the entire county of Devon. The jump was not just about conquering fears; it was about conquering the barriers that often restrict the experiences of those with learning disabilities.

The staff and community rallied behind them, offering support and donations that poured in, like droplets of kindness. Together, they are raising funds for a new sensory room, a sanctuary where the residents could explore their senses, find calm in chaos, and experience the world in a whole new way.

Well done to everyone involved from Sesame, Adult Learning Disability residential home
