I got a lovely award this year for my 10-year celebration working in Tesco.
I work with my colleagues facing off items on the shelf and then I put empty boxes from the shelf into a baler, this flattens them down. I have made a lot of friends over the years working in Tesco and I enjoy my job.
I got a lovely cake, balloons, bangers and my boss Andy took a few pictures of me with my colleagues. I also got a lovely badge to celebrate my 10th year. I will start wearing my badge on my uniform when I go back to work next week. My parents are happy for me and I really like my job in Tesco.
We think Stephen did a great job to sign along to Katy Perry’s song ROAR while in lion costume.
“I really enjoyed my day with Wicklow county council staff. We went on a site visit to see the New Ross Bridge. I did a tour of the new bridge and saw all the works being carried out. It was really interesting, this was one of my goals. I enjoyed the lovely meal afterwards also” – Paul.
Kiera Broe and Eoin Hayden pictured on the red carpet with Sunbeam House music instructor Tommy Breen and St.Marys college orchestra leader Christine Steele before their performances at the Asgard theatre Arklow. Eoin “sang Time to say Goodbye” and Kiera performed a contemporary dance. Both of the guys got standing ovations and it was a very positive experience.
Gavin, Paul, Tomek and I go up to Glenart Collage every Monday morning.
There are transition year students and the woodwork instructor Richard Fleming in the class.
I walk myself up to the Glenart Collage independently.
First, I made a coffee table then we made a hedgehog hut.
We are making the hedgehog hut for the Arklow tidy towns.
I met the man I know when he was living in Aughrim.

I would like to make a cup holder for the couch as my next project.

Cathy Macken here. It’s time to start filling your shoeboxes again for Team Hope. This is my 11th year doing this appeal.
