On Thursday 14 October, Outlook Care held a party to celebrate their 30th Anniversary and a fantastic 30 years of caring!
Over 200 people supported by Outlook Care and staff employed, enjoyed the event at Sir James Hawkey Hall in Woodford Green and from the moment guests arrived, it was clear everyone was looking forward to the celebrations.
With a 1980’s theme to coincide with the opening of Outlook Care in 1989, so many people had come dressed to impress with their bright neon colours, ra-ra skirts and leg warmers. It was definitely going to be a party to remember.
Customers and staff of Outlook Care’s services were excited to celebrate the organisation’s 30 years of caring and promoting its vision: ‘A Life where every person is valued, included and empowered’. The organisation’s updated vision and ‘LIKE IT’ values were evident in the planning and throughout the event as people felt included and inspired.
Outlook Care favourite DJ Eddie provided the music and entertainment and there was singing and dancing aplenty!
Donna, one of Outlook Care’s supported living customers, really enjoyed the party saying, ‘It was really nice to see old friends. I liked seeing all the girls dressed in colourful skirts and Piotr in his outfit too. I enjoyed spending time with Barbara, [Outlook Care’s new Director of Operations and Business Development] and getting to know her’.
Linda and Colin, two of Outlook Care’s longest supported customers, cut the 30th birthday cake in front of the large crowd to a rapturous applause.
Piotr Rejek, Chief Executive, was delighted to see so many people at the party having such a good time and said of the celebrations, ‘I couldn’t be happier to see people we support along with our fabulous staff enjoying themselves as we celebrate 30 years of caring. Having Linda and Colin cut the cake was a great moment. Here’s to the next 30 years!’
