The ‘new kids on the block’ will be introducing themselves to Milton Keynes’ Beanhill community on Friday.
The staff and individuals supported by MacIntyre, the Milton Keynes based charity providing services and support to more than 170 learning disabled people across the city, are moving into their new home at the former Beanhill Community Centre.
While work continues to improve and customise the premises, Beanhill residents will be welcoming their new neighbours at an open event at the Moorlands Centre.
‘Meet MacIntyre’ will give local people the chance to see what the organisation does and how it will fit into Beanhill, and to explore the opportunities for both joining in with activities and volunteering.
Anna Perry, Head of Operations for MacIntyre in MK, says they are grateful to the Beanhill Community for giving us the opportunity to stage this welcome event.
She said: “We hope lots of people – including the children – will drop in to see what we’re about. I think they’ll be surprised at the wide range of things we do at MacIntyre and may even want to see how they can get involved.
‘Meet MacIntyre’ takes place from 10am to 2pm at the Moorlands Centre on Friday, 10 February. As well as displays, there will be opportunities to take part in craft activities, decorate gingerbread men and listen to MacIntyre’s very own pop group, Haddon Beats.
