Add on activity:

On this day, Purple Patch would usually have a stall at the Leeds Picnic in the Park, organised by our friends at Aspire CBS. Since we can’t all meet up at the picnic this year, Aspire have organised ‘Picnic In Your Garden’ – Hold your very own picnic in a garden and send photographs to post on the Aspire Facebook page. They’ll be looking out for people doing fantastic activities, eating amazing food and/or wearing fabulous outfits!  If you don’t want to post your photos directly to the Aspire Facebook page you could send them to melanie@purplepatcharts.org and we’ll tag Aspire for you on our Facebook page.

Friday 19th June is Learning Disability Pride day, organised by Connect in The North. This is to celebrate being proud of having learning disabilities. This year they are asking people to share photos of themselves celebrating the things they do. You can email yours to cathy@citn.org.uk
