River Park team were interviewed by Phil Cooper from BB Radio Merseyside

It’s been a busy few weeks of accomplishments for the people we support over at Port Sunlight River Park.

Hot on the heels of delivering a sensational Halloween Trail for the public to enjoy, the team based in the Heritage Centre and Cafe building have been judging a national autism award, working towards a ‘Relationships’ ASDAN, and getting interviewed by BBC Radio Merseyside!

The team were asked to be judges of this year’s Autism Leaders List Awards, having been winners themselves last year. They had to look at 10 shortlisted nominees and give comments and scores to see which of the entries they thought was the most deserving of this year’s prize (see photos below).

The group found it an involving and worthwhile project and have all been invited to join in the celebrations at the online awards ceremony in a few weeks to see this year’s winners crowned.

And then, this week, Steven, Jake, Liam and Mr C – plus Activity Manager Mike Stormes – all took part in an interview with the BBC’s Phil Cooper (photos top and below). It’s all part of an upcoming 1-hour special on Radio Merseyside on December 2nd all about autism. Everyone did a brilliant job.

We’ll let you know more details about the radio show nearer the time.
