Live music, a fashion show and even a bake-off helped launch a great new service for disabled people.

The Aldingbourne Trust, which has premises in Cornwall Road, Fratton, has set up Make which teaches people new skills and gives them the chance to use them in the community.

And Gig Buddies is a befriending service where participants are matched to volunteers who have the same interests.

The Lord Mayor of Portsmouth Councillor Ken Ellcome was invited to officially launch the new services.

Make is open six days a week between 9.30am and 4.30pm. It currently has several vacancies for adults with disabilities. Anyone interested in joining the team should e-mail sarahm@aldingbourne.org.
