Service users and staff at Cromwell Road Resource Centre were delighted at the official opening of ‘The Cristal Room’, a newly renovated therapy room to benefit users at the centre. Offering a day service for people with a learning disability aged 18-65, Cromwell Road Resource Centre is part of Care Plus Group and provides therapeutic interventions such as aromatherapy, music therapy, and communication skills to people with additional complex needs such as physical disabilities and sensory impairments.
An outdated room at the centre has been transformed over the course of a few months with the hard work and fundraising efforts of staff and service users. The service user led ‘Events’ team donated £300 from their year round fundraising via fayres, discos and fun days. The room was repainted by volunteers from the garden centre to create a tranquil space for service users to relax and receive treatments such as massage, reflexology and nail art.
There was also a very generous £500 donation from the Cristal Community Team from Humber Bank Organisation Cristal based in Stallingborough. The £500 donation from Cristal enabled the purchase furniture to complete the room including two new sofas, a docking station, room aroma set, towels and foot spa along with a storage cupboard. Marc Truman and Rebecca Kirvan-Rodgers from Cristal visited Cromwell Road to tour the facilities and officially open ‘The Cristal Room’ in front of service users and staff.
Jayne O’ Flinn, Deputy Service Manager said:
“We’re really grateful to Cristal for their donation and to the staff, volunteers and service users who have worked hard to transform the room. We know the room will be very well used by almost all of our service users here and will be a space they can come and relax and receive treatments that make a big difference to their sense of wellbeing.”
