The first interviews have now been recorded for The Big 30 Archive with Terry Crew and Mark Burgess. Terry runs the Tuesday Club, a weekly club night in South London for people with learning disabilities, but he was also one of Heart n Soul’s first drivers. In his interview with Lilly and Cherry he spoke about his years of experience running events with people with learning disabilities and what has changed over time.

Mark (right) is a Heart n Soul Trustee, has been part of Heart n Soul for 24 years and designed one of the first Beautiful Octopus Club posters. Interviewers Catherine, Tilley and Del heard some great stories from Mark and how it is important to get younger generations involved in Heart n Soul and provide them with the same opportunities that he has had.

Lilly has been documenting her Big 30 experiences on her blog Journalist on Wheelz. You can follow her journey here.

If the next 28 interviews are anything like Mark’s and Terry’s we have a great few months ahead of us!
