Josh Makes Musical 'Memory'

1st May 2014


Our aim is to work with each and every single service user to enable them to move on into more independent living projects and overcome their anxieties. Joshua, from Heathcotes Hucknall, has been working on his social anxieties and in a show of support to Josh for all his hard work, the Hucknall team arranged a special surprise.

Josh is an avid fan of the musical Cats. A regular viewer of the film version, Josh always gets into the spirit, giving it his all with a good sing along!  When staff from Hucknall discovered his favourite musical was playing at the Nottingham Theatre Royal, they quickly booked the best seats in the house.  Josh was very excited and on the night was thoroughly enjoying the show.  However, unbeknownst to Josh, the surprises weren't over yet, as staff had also arranged for Josh to meet the cast members of Cats during the interval!  Josh met the cast, still in full stage costume, and had a chat, before happily posing for a picture.

Sarah Lycett, Home Manager, said she felt extremely proud of how far Josh has come, "This really melted my heart knowing Josh and his social anxiety problems.  He's worked really hard to overcome his fears and it just reminds you what a worthwhile job we all do when you see a young person getting out and enjoying his life to the full".
