We were made aware of Spark by a friend who sent us a link. Spark was only just starting up but we thought it was a fantastic project and something we thought would be great for Karen after her stroke.
We contacted Becky and managed to raise some money for the charity hoping that one day it would be something that Karen could attend.
When Spark first started we would drop in and stay with Karen and we were instantly made welcome. She now gets the bus there and back every Tuesday and it is the highlight of her week. As a family we feel confident to let her go on her own knowing that she is in a friendly safe environment with lovely people.
I had not been to the cafe for a while but a few weeks ago I took Karen and it was amazing to see her so confident and happy with her friends.
Spark has been an amazing support for not only Karen but our whole family.
