Grey in the Community

GITC is a fantastic society to get involved within the college. It is organises community outreach projects from the college level allowing a huge amount of direct influence and involvement from students. There are currently 3 projects running: SPORTS DAY – runs once a term for local children with special needs and disabilities. It involves committing for just one day or a few hours a term. The day involves a morning of sports at Maiden Castle followed by an afternoon of arts and student led entertainment. These days provide school groups to try sports and activities that they do not always have the opportunity to do – they thrive off the special attention and excitement; their enthusiasm is truly infectious. HALLGARTH NURSING HOME – these visits to a local nursing home take place on a few afternoons every term. There is a very relaxed atmosphere at the home so it is very easy to pop along. The resident’s love seeing new faces and having a new companion to chat to. It is surprising how much you can have in common and you can clearly see many of their faces light up when the group arrives for a few hours. CONTACT THE ELDERLY – our branch of this national charity hosts monthly tea parties at Grey. They are a means by which to offer isolated elderly members in the local area an opportunity to meet new people and be able to recall memories and tell their funny stories.
