Lorraine has been attending Reach Newark for 13 years and has been a Client Representative since 2019. Lorraine shared:

I love coming to Reach. It gets me out the house and I get to see all my friends and staff . Currently I do the Craft and the Sit and Be Fit classes. I love making things and I enjoy keeping fit. 

I am the Client Representative for the Sit and Be Fit class which I really enjoy. It is an important job to have as I am the voice of my class. I like being able to listen to my friends and get their views as well as any suggestions they would like to make for the next term.

We all get together at the forum and bring any new ideas or make note of whether anyone needs any equipment for their class. At the last forum, my class decided we wanted to learn more about animals and movements as well as learning Makaton  animal signs. I took this to the forum and then our Tutor, Romany, made it happen for the following term, which made us all very happy."
