At CCL we use Makaton every day and we truly believe it makes a huge difference to the lives we support, Makaton helps everyone who lives with a communication difficulty to understand and be understood. CCL staff and students planned to complete a ‘mini-makahike’ and song with Makaton to fundraise for The Makaton Charity between 11-14th May.
However, due to lockdown restrictions, CCL decided to twist it up and collectively travel the equivalent of Snowdon on our daily exercise by either walking, running or using exercise bikes. CCL so far have raised £219! As well as the hike, we practiced signs and re-created ‘Mr Blue Sky’. All staff and students signed, sang and danced along, this was a great activity to lift the mood in lockdown!
