Trip to Diss and Harvest

Axis members enjoyed a pub lunch at the Waterfront Pub in Diss in September. The food was delicious, and the staff were helpful and attentive. It was a beautiful day and members spent some time basking in the sunshine before returning home on our mini bus.






Members, here at Axis, celebrated Harvest on 30th September, learning about the traditions of harvest and donating food items to Stowmarket Food Bank.

Boccia is Back: Celebrating National Boccia Day








There was a great atmosphere in the hall earlier this week, as 36 participants, from across Suffolk, came together to take part in the ActivLives Boccia Festival in Ipswich, in celebration of National Boccia Day 2021.

The event was supported by players from a variety of partner organisations including Avenues East Ipswich and Stowmarket, Wots Up, Papworth Trust and Mid-Suffolk Axis

The day also had star quality as Ipswich-based, Evie Edwards, recently returned from representing Paralympics GB in Tokyo, was on hand throughout the event to meet players and to present the awards.

A big ‘thank you’ must go to all of our great volunteers who gave their time, skills and energy to make it all happen. Thanks also to Special Olympics Suffolk, Active Suffolk, SCC and IBC, for their support with this event.
