Crisis Skylight Birmingham celebrates
Ninety people gathered at the Blue Orange Theatre in Birmingham to recognise and celebrate the learning achievements of Crisis Skylight Birmingham clients.
To open the event, clients, staff and volunteers were treated to an adaptation of David Cumpton’s The Cagebirds, performed by the drama group, which was a culmination of 12 weeks of hard work and rehearsals.
Leslie Morphy, chief executive of Crisis, gave an inspiring speech, before presenting clients with certificates for Smart Skills, a scheme to help people gain confidence before returning to education or employment, and Get Ready, a programme providing people with the confidence and skills required to secure and sustain a job.
A drumming performance brought the event to a close.
Matthew Green, Director of Crisis Skylight Birmingham, said: “This was Crisis Skylight Birmingham’s sixth celebration and they get better and better. The progress, pride and confidence of all clients who gave speeches and performed was evident. I am constantly amazed by the bravery and willingness of our members to succeed in spite of adversity.”
Crisis Skylight Birmingham would like to thank Tony Higgs and United Coffee for their donation of hot beverages.
