The premises were destroyed in the explosion that rocked the town on March 25. The idea of the shop was to generate an income to offer free holidays for their SEN members as well as offering a retail experience for the local SEN community. They have recently taken 70 SEN members free of charge to Pontin Prestatyn and in November take 42 to Bendrigg Lodge – a special need outward bound centre in Cumbria. After the explosion, PHAB were lucky enough to be offered the old co-op building in new ferry from 50 square an organisation who work with the co-op to regenerate empty co-op buildings. Since the explosion the PHAB team & SueVivor (a local stroke charity) have created the PHABulous community hub. They offer the HOBBY HUB where you can practice free of charge all types of hobbies from guitar workshops to learning sign language. PHAB have also created PHAB furniture, brought in the food bank, helped local businesses & charities like ‘New Beginnings’ re-establish in the centre, and offered qualifications to the community with Wirral life-long learning. Wirral Met college have just put 40 SEN students through retail qualifications and have had a 100% pass rate. Lorna Howell, event organiser said: “After two big successful weekend events, PHAB & Suevivor have created COSPLAY. “The event has been devised to put a smile on the local community’s face and an opportunity to dress up in comic style outfits and have fun. “With loads of great bands on, circus performers, mediums, stalls and even meeting R2D2 from star wars it’s an event not to be missed and everything raised will help the centre.”
