Service users and staff at Shinewater Court, in Eastbourne, enjoyed a Chocolate Party on Friday 20thFebruary. The event was hosted in aid of the #ConnectAbility Appeal – a three year fundraising campaign to raise £250k to purchase assistive communications technology for service users.


A ‘Chocoholic’s’ representative hosted the event at Shinewater and presented a wide range of chocolate, including boxes, bars and hampers. The party was a great opportunity to purchase sweet treats in time for Mother’s Day and Easter.

Service user, Jim Mockford was delighted with the Easter gifts he purchase for his grandchildren and Susan Sullivan said, “My mum will love the chocolates I chose her for Mother’s Day.” Glynn Wilson added, “I liked that I could get the chocolate personalised to say “For my Linkworker.”

Shinewater Court Activities Co-ordinator, Jenny said, “It was lovely to see service users, staff and visitors enjoy a range of delicious indulgences whilst raising awareness for #ConnectAbility.”
