Future Steps would like to take the time to thank everyone who attended the Thornaby Launch event on 15th September. Julie was overwhelmed by the support that we received on that special day, which means so much to her. Future Steps Thornaby has long been a vision of Julie’s and has been made possible thanks to the fantastic team at Thornaby Academy and Linda Halbert of the Teesside Learning Trust. Julie and her team are truly grateful that they have faith in us.
Anna Kennedy OBE, who unveiled our plague and officially opened Future Steps Thornaby. Anna delivered an insightful and wonderful speech on her own journey to help children with Autism, which was fantastic to hear. It appears as though Anna and Julie may have been made to meet! We are exceptionally honoured that Anna attended the event and would love to have her back! Julie donated towards Anna Kennedy’s Charity to show our support and appreciation.
All the team had a fantastic time showing our guests around the new facilities. We hope all our guests enjoyed the speeches, videos, tours and food!
