Helena Jeffries

It is with regret and huge sadness that we let you know that Helena (founding Director) passed away on Saturday 25th May suddenly and unexpectedly. Our thoughts are with Helena’s family at this time.

At the beginning of 2024 neither Helena or Jo knew they would be setting up a community interest company supporting local youngsters and their families.  Helena’s passion and drive was integral in getting Outside of the Box (OOTB) set up and running.  This was an adventure that we started out on together, we pulled Terri in along the way and we are devastated that Helena will not be here with us to see it come to fruition.

We were so looking forward to this coming week as we welcome lots of youngsters and their families into OOTB for the first time and being able to share our vision.  We are taking time to process it all and determine the way forward for the business.  In the short term we are working as hard as possible to ensure there is minimal disruption and to continue with activities as planned.

Our doors are open all week for our full programme of half term activities.  Please feel free to drop-in even if not booked on an activity for a chat  and see what is going on. Please be aware that there will be youngsters on site (some with SEN) so please respect this and be sensitive to their ears.

If you need to get in contact email admin@outsideofthebox.uk.

Jo and Terri
