We have had a very busy month at The BRC:

We went the Zoo !!!

We had the best time, a lot of fun and laughs was had by all. We seen lions, tigers, and got to feed the birds in there giant cage some of us where lucky enough to have the beautiful parakeets land on us and feed from our hands.  We walked with wallaby’s, watched the wolves being fed and We had front row seats at the amazing sea lion show.

This was a great day out, the first for many to come. The service users we were also treated to a souvenir as a keepsake from the day.
