Craig visited Jersey for the first time to support the local charity Les Amis, which provides services to help Islanders who have learning difficulties. The foundation invited Craig to visit as part of their 40th anniversary celebrations.
Since 1975, the Les Amis has been working closely with islanders with learning difficulties including Down’s Syndrome, autism and other associated conditions. Craig spent his time in Jersey at a public open day at the charity’s respite home, Mourant Lodge, in Trinity and visiting residents at some of the 30 houses and flats operated by Les Amis.
Craig said: “‘Les Amis has a fantastic set-up and establishment. It has got everything and the staff are just wonderful with the residents, and so patient. It is one of the best facilities I have ever seen. As many of you will know, I am a patron of the Down’s Syndrome Association so I was delighted to support this very worthy cause.”
