GANF would like to give sincere thanks to The Card factory, Grantham for their overwhelming support this week.

We take our students out into the community as much as possible. This is to help them get used to different experiences and also to help raise awareness of disabilities within our local community.

This week staff from GANF took some 6th Form students out shopping in Grantham. One student in particular has difficulty with crowded places and can feel anxious in a busy environment, which is why we are working with her to help with this.

On entering the Card Factory in Isaac Newton Centre in Grantham, the student took to the floor and refused to move for 40 minutes.

The staff, and we have to say also the general public, were absolutely fantastic and so supportive.

The Card Factory turned off all the store lights to help calm the student and they were so patient with her and couldn’t do enough to help.

We felt very strongly about posting this story because sometimes tolerances of people with additional needs can be tricky.

Thank you once again, to all at The Card Factory, Grantham.
