Suites Hotel Knowsley proudly support Hack-Back CIC, a truly fantastic charity, in fact it’s like no-other.
Hack Back CIC is a social enterprise which was set up in 2012 to improve the mental health and well-being of people of all ages. Hack Back CIC works with a wide range of individuals (adults, young people and children) improving their well-being and helping them to achieve their full potential in life. Hack Back CIC provide interventions that are underpinned by psychological theory and practice. What makes them different is their unique approach. A team of psychologists-including Anita Morris, combine psychological therapies with interaction with Birds of Prey. Hack Back uses birds of prey to work with people who have conditions such as Autism, other learning disabilities, Alzheimer’s and even domestic violence victims. Hack Back have helped and can help many more people and children who are disadvantaged in many ways. There are also many more example of the excellent work which Anita and her team do and this shows us how important it is to support a charity like Hack Back.
When you speak with Anita you realise how passionate she is about her work and the real enjoyment she receives from seeing the benefits of her techniques. Last week, Suites Hotel had some VIP guests at the hotel, Murray- an American Burrowing Owl, Mango- a beautiful Barn Owl and Idris an African Spotted Eagle Owl met with MD Peter Tyer to introduce themselves to some of the team and discuss a new community project. Hack Back have struggled to get funding in recent times as the assumption is often that the money will be spent on the birds. The birds’ upkeep and welfare are actually supported by Cheshire Falconry without whom Hack Back wouldn’t exist.
The new project funded by MD Peter Tyer and Marketing Director Lyndsay Tyer in partnership with Northwood Primary School in Kirkby within which Hack Back will work with children with additional needs. Suites Hotel are pleased to hear that over 40 children will benefit from the kind donation. In addition to meeting the Hack Back owls the children will receive copies of Murray the Smallest Owl book and enjoy a session aimed at recognising individual talents, and building self-esteem and confidence. Murray the owl has already visited the school and the children are looking forward to working with him again before they finish for the summer.
