KPF Weekend Event 2017

We held our 2017 Weekend Event at the end of September.  We had 60 guests this year – all adults affected by burn injuries and their family/friends/partners.  Activities included:

  • Cupcake decorating
  • A talk on confidence from Katie Piper
  • Preview of Trial By Fire – a documentary from Terry Dunnage – https://www.facebook.com/TerryDunnageFoundation/
  • Mindful walks in nature
  • Personal training
  • Relaxing massage
  • Swimming
  • Camouflage and makeup consultations
  • Craft workshop
  • Vocational workshop

Our volunteers, burn survivors themselves, organised the weekend event and led the majority of the activities.

         

We had wonderful feedback from the event, including this testimonial:

I can’t thank the Foundation enough for our weekend event.  I’ve been beaming since I got in the car to leave. My own mother said I’ve come back a different person and am glowing.  I’ve learnt a lot about myself this weekend and it’s opened my eyes and corrected a lot of thoughts I had about myself.  I’ve met some amazing people who I am happy to say have now become my new friends and peers and also support. I feel like you have given me a purpose as I’ve been able to share tips with people on certain little day to day things.  Thank you so much for helping me find and be ME.
