We settled in at 'The Spoke', KIM's new outreach office in the Luke O'Connor Resource Centre in Hightown, Wrexham.
We went on some outings; a theatre trip to see Priscilla at Theatr Clwyd, a cinema trip for young people and we went to Storyhouse in Chester. Everyone traveled to the venues independently and a great time was had by all.
BBC Radio 4's 'All in the Mind' presenter Claudia Hammond and her sound engineer Pam visited KIM to record a feature after Hannah nominated us. We went on to win the 'All in the Mind' Community Group category and went to the ceremony in London. The award was presented to KIM by Dame Kelly Holmes.
