APD Cracker Project

For decades the senior ladies at the Laubsher Park Retirement Centre have been manufacturing high quality Party Crackers.

During 2013, the ladies, all of them in their senior years, considered calling it a day.

Their search for someone to continue with this wonderful project ended when Avril Smith, a board member of APD heard about this via her mom who was a member of the team.

Avril was of the opinion that the APD Workshops at 55 Paterson Rd in North End where we provide work for some 120 Persons with Disabilities was the ideal “new home” for the Cracker Project.

Albert Dias was sent to the ladies workshop and after a good few grilling sessions under the watchful eyes of the ladies he moved across the APD Workshops and, as they say, the rest is history.

Our Operations Team very quickly prepared a room that is now the APD Cracker Project’s home.
