Our annual volunteer thankyou lunch was held today at #themountedgcumbe and attended by nearly all of our lovely volunteers - sadly, Rachel and tim, Carolyn and some of our students were unable to make it, but it was a good turnout and we were very grateful they made time to come along. A buffet lunch was provided by the hotel and in her speech, Karen thanked everyone for the joy they brought to our residents.
We are lucky to have such support - from taking residents to church, personal shopping, art and craft, bingo, scrabble, and poetry groups to the weekly PAT dog visit, printing of our newsletter, knit and natter, weekly quiz, helping on trips out and dropping in the church newsletter - there is a wealth of variety which the residents so enjoy.

We were very privileged to be entertained today by Ellen who plays a magnificent harp. Afternoon tea was served in the vintage china and we found the posh biscuits! Even the cats enjoyed it...
As Stuart was visiting from head office
She finished by playing a happy birthday tribute to David who celebrates his special day on Thursday.
We had a packed lounge today and a very appreciative audience, who would love to hear Ellen play for them again.
