What Trainees Say About CASE

Trainees from CASE share their thoughts about CASE and what it means to them....

“Every week, I join 15 other trainees from CASE at a cheerleading class at Craven Park, in east Hull. I love dancing and have made new friends through the group. We’re hoping to do our first performance at CASE’s summer showcase – I can’t wait.”

“Chocolate brownies are my favourite thing to bake at home, which I learnt how to do at CASE as part of a cooking class. I’m a creative person, so I like to make things. The art and craft group is a chance for me to make birthday cards for friends and family, and we even make items to be sold at craft fairs.”

“CASE has been the perfect place for me to pick up new skills. Since I started coming in 2016, I’ve learnt how to make costumes and am currently working on a Star Wars-themed outfit for Halloween. I’m always keen to learn more and give new things a go. Although I can cook, I don’t know how to bake, which is why I’m going to do a baking course next. I’d love to be able to make cakes at home for my husband and I, so that will be my next challenge here at CASE.”

“CASE has really helped me change my life around. I’ve improved my skills in IT, painting and drawing, and cooking. My favourite meal to make is pizza – I can make the dough and the tomato sauce topping from scratch now. It’s allowed me to get creative in the kitchen at home. CASE has also helped me make new friends. There’s 10 of us who go bowling together every week, which I really enjoy.”

“The history of Hull is something I’m passionate about and I’m always keen to learn more. At CASE, we get to visit places such as the Ferens Art Gallery and the museums, which is always interesting and fun.”

“For the past few years, I’ve taken part in the Rotary Games playing snooker and darts. It’s a fun day and a great way to meet new people and make new friends.”

“The days out are my favourite bit about CASE. The trip to Flamingo Land is a highlight and I enjoy seeing the lions and tigers at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park.”
