Knowsley Supported Lodgings enjoys residential trip to Anglesey

Knowsley Supported Lodgings residential to Anglesey  


Ten young people from Knowsley Supported Lodgings (KSL) have recently returned from a three day residential trip to Anglesey.  The young people took part in a range of outdoor activities, as well as shopping and cooking for the group.
Challenges included mountain biking near Betws-y-Coed, sea kayaking and visiting the South Stack lighthouse via its 441 steps!  A particular highlight for the group was their first taste of coasteering which involves a mix of climbing along rocks on the coastline and jumping into the sea and swimming.  

The residential was funded through fundraising activities by KSL’s  Householders, including a recent bag packing event at Iceland in Old Swan.  Each of the young people also made a contribution towards their costs.  

The trip was a great opportunity for the young people and staff to stretch themselves, conquer their fears and provide support and encouragement to their peers.  Below is some feedback from two of the young people:

“I loved the kayaking.  As I see it, no pain no gain!”
Sophie, 18

“I enjoyed the mountain biking, it was nice to go on bikes on the hills”
Matty, 17

Knowsley Supported Lodgings would like to thank their Householders and other supporters for their fundraising efforts that made this residential trip possible.
