Enrych Bucks Photo Group has a new home!
Our very successful photogroup has now moved from its old venue at Trinity Church to The Healthy Living Centre, Unit 1 Walton Court Shopping Centre, Hannon Road, Aylesbury, HP21 8TJ.
This friendly group meets every Wednesday from 10:00-11:45. One session per month is a fieldwork session so we would advise you to check with Steve Cook on 07825005305 before attending the session in case they are out on location.

Enrychers in Pictures – the bigger picture
We asked our teams around the country to nominate people in Enrych who had made a real difference to other people’s lives. ‘Enrycher’ Awards were presented at our national Enrych Day.
This month our picture features Buckinghamshire co-ordinators Jenny and Beth, collecting the award on behalf of the Buckinghamshire team.
As the nominators said “We don’t feel we can single out any individual over another but we want to recognise the enormous contribution of all our volunteers, including our trustees – so this award is for the entire Bucks team.”
We so agree, and are delighted to see a team being recoqnised in this way.
Jenny and Beth are receiving the award from Rob, who as volunteer has done a huge amount of work to help us develop our marketing strategy. We’ve seen this bear fruit all through 2016 with our 30th anniversary innitiatives. Indeed it was Rob who came up with the tag ‘Enrychers in Pictures’ Thank you Rob!
Congratulations to Carol Haines on her award for her work with our photogroup members!
Buckinghamshire Adult Learning course co-ordinator Carol Haines has been given an award for helping a brain injury group.
Carol, 62, from Wing, started a digital photography group for adults with brain injury at the Camborne Centre in Aylesbury five years ago.
She has now retired but was honoured last month with the award. It was presented to her by Malcolm Underhill from IBB Solicitors, the award sponsors, while Dr. Andy Tyerman, Consultant Clinical Neuropsychologist, Community Head Injury Service, thanked her for her work. He said: “This award is well deserved recognition for Carol’s commitment and passion for helping adults with brain injury to achieve to their full potential.”
Photogroup sessions are welcome to everyone and run on a Wednesday from 10AM at Holy Trinity Church, Walton Street, Aylesbury.

Our Chair of Trustees, Dr Stephen Large writes
I am delighted to share with you our Enrych Annual Report, celebrating 30 years of supporting disabled people. I think it is a remarkable document. To me it is extraordinary how much we have achieved. It is good to be able to talk about so many success stories, and areas of growth, despite the difficult economic climate. I would personally like to thank everyone who has been a part of this success, and especially to those who have shared their stories here.
