On Sunday 14 November Diagrama was delighted to take JJ, Kevin, and Edward, three residents from their Supported Living Service in Bromley to watch the Brit Cars event at Brands Hatch, as guests of Racing Events who provide motorsport hospitality.
One of the residents who attended the Brit Cars event was thirty-year-old JJ, who said, “I have loved cars since I was about five and because of this passion my Dad calls me a ‘car nut’ and he’s right I am. Kevin, Edward and I had the most marvellous time and saw cars including Minis, Mercedes Fords and Ginetta. I even got the chance to sit in one of the cars. The whole day was amazing, and I would love to do it again.”
Gary Johnson, Partner, Racing Events, Brands Hatch, said, “Racing Events was pleased to be able to support Diagrama, providing some fun and joy at Brands Hatch, and creating memories for the future.”
Eddie Hay, Development and Support Worker, Bromley Supported Living Service who went to Brands Hatch for the day, said, “JJ, Kevin and Edward were delighted to have the opportunity to spend the day at Brands Hatch. When the drivers realised what a car enthusiast JJ was, they made a real fuss of him and let him sit in one of their cars which made his day. Days out are so important, and our heartfelt thanks go to Gary Johnson at Racing Events who generously donated the tickets.”
After the excitement about the visit to Brands Hatch, Diagrama asked JJ, Kevin and Edward, who share a home in the Supported Living Service, what type of day out they might like next and there was a resounding vote to attend a football club and see behind the scenes
