our staff have been doing for the community.
Royal street parties
To celebrate the recent Royal wedding, some of you have
been holding street parties for your local communities.
Mrs Chambers, together with other residents, held an
afternoon tea themed celebration in Broughton, with a
special showing of the wedding.
"It was a lovely atmosphere and the event attracted around
30 residents, who all brought some food along. Some
residents wouldn't usually be able to leave the house to
enjoy such things, so it really was a special day. In fact it
went so well that we're in the planning stages of holding a
BBQ!" said Mrs Chambers.
Another Royal street party was held over at the Ongo
Viking Centre, Barton, which was hosted by members of
Ongo staff and volunteers.
The event attracted over
200 residents, and
events included a BBQ,

The Bike Project
Run by John Cavill, a qualified bike technician and member
of Ongo staff, the Bike Project sees volunteers learning the
skills required to be able to fix and clean damaged bikes
which have been donated. Once the bikes are road worthy,
they are given to clients of our Employment Support Team
that need transport to get to work.
The project is located in Buildbase, Scunthorpe with the
volunteers working in a container donated by Container
King. The team are always on the lookout for bike donations.
If you have any to donate, please get in touch with the team
by calling 01724 844848.
