Do you have a Learning Disability and live in Hackney or know someone who does? Then why not pop along to the Petchey Academy from 10 am Wednesday 26 October.

The Big Do is an annual event for adults with learning disabilities, their carers and families to come together to join in some fun and share experiences.

The theme for this year is Hate Crime/Mate Crime and Staying Safe, but also has a strong focus on supporting local people to stay healthy, safe and well.

There will be workshops on MultiMe, a safe and secure social media site for people with learning disabilities; yoga sessions; hand massages from the Learning Disability Service Health Team; also have a go at playing a musical instrument with the Joy of Sound; and the day finishing with the Police Band who will be playing and also hosting some Karaoke.

Lunch is included and there will be stalls with activities and information to have a look at including a raffle.
