Staff and clients of Mencap Ilford were a little way from home recently as they cruised from Kingston to Shepperton on Thames Venturer. The journey proved more than worthwhile, according to feedback from the organiser, Brenda.

“On behalf of Mencap, I would like to thank you for such a lovely boat cruise we had on Saturday. It was one of the best day for us all, staff and the people we support at Mencap.
The cruise team were exceptionally perfect, we felt welcome as soon as we came off our com cabs, the whole team was waiting with smiles for us. It felt like a home coming welcome. Straight away, we knew it was going to be a memorable day and indeed it was. Cups of teas and coffees were non stop, very smart boat, everywhere, cutlery, toilets, blankets, everything was spotless. Big thanks to all the crew.
The people we support felt so comfortable despite it being their first time to be on the boat.
We can`t thank you enough and we will be back soon.
We will definitely spread the word about our adventure to some of our Mencap services in our borough so they also don`t miss such a special event.
Brenda, Mencap Ilford
