A Mansfield care home has teamed up with the town’s museum to exterminate boredom for people with learning disabilities this coming Monday, 28th October.

Sanctuary Supported Living’s Corner House, which provides residential care for people with learning disabilities, is offering people the chance to build their very own Dalek, the fearsome enemy from BBC sci-fi show Doctor Who.

From 10am to 12 noon, visitors will be able to make their very own miniature menace at an art workshop being held at Mansfield Museum, on Leeming Street, to mark Mansfield Museum’s Doctor Who Week, in recognition of the show’s 50th Anniversary.

Gallery assistants will be providing instruction on how to assemble the handheld tiny tyrants, which can be coloured and decorated to personal taste.

Corner House manager Joanne Hardwick said: “With the Doctor in limbo between series of the show, this is the perfect time for the Daleks to strike.

“Mansfield Museum has very kindly let our residents and any other members of the public with learning disabilities come along to help out the war effort.

“On a more serious note, this event will make a real difference to the learning disability community in the area, who are in need of activities that are interesting and stimulating, while providing a chance to socialise with others.”
