Cornerstone has come up with lots of ideas and activities to keep the people they support from home connected and busy during lockdown.    

From learning a new sign each week using Makaton to online karaoke and bake-off competitions, there’s something for everyone.  The charity, which provides support to children, young people and adults with disabilities and other support needs, is also finding ways to make sure that people can stay relaxed and feel safe in their homes during this difficult time.

  Sharon Irvine said: “We have kick started our activities with a spring art competition and the chance of winning a £10 Amazon voucher! There will be more mini events after the success of our Easter Egg decorating competition which a lot of people we support had a good and creative time decorating their eggs.  We have also sent out an exercise video made by the people who do these at our day activity group.”   

This week’s ‘Marshmallow Challenge’ sounds a bit tricky!  Participants must build the tallest, free-standing structure they can using only spaghetti, tape and string and try to balance a marshmallow on top.
