Fund Raising Update!

Recently we told you about the year of fund raising events that we have begun for St Barnabas House. Care assistants Collette and Sarah have been doing a great job so far raising money and getting ready for the first event, the Night to Remember half marathon midnight walk along Worthing seafront on Saturday 16th June 2012.

They’ve already raised over £100.00 and are continuing to keep up the good work – you can help them raise even more money for this worthy charity by clicking on the ‘donate’ button on the left.

Here are a few words from the girls below…

I am so happy to be taking part in this year’s midnight walk to raise money for St Barnabas. I am really enjoying my training which is consisting of long walks along Worthing Seafront. Walking from Lancing to Worthing in this hot weather has been lovely, both myself and Collette have been raising money and are so grateful for the response so far. Once again I can’t wait to take part in the walk and help raise money for such a good cause” –Sarah

I’m really looking forward to the 13.1 mile walk that Sarah and I will be doing in aid of St Baranabas. I have started training and think for me – I’m doing well! I have realised I may need to get some ‘Shape Up‘ trainers and make the most of it, if I’m going to walk that far!” –Collette

A Very Spoilt Office Manager!

I had a lovely surprise this afternoon, when a resident’s relation asked me to come into the conservatory as they had something for me, I opened the gift bag in front of the residents and found a beautifully knitted bobble hat. I had previously joked that during the colder weather, because of my lack of hair I did notice the cold!

I must thank both Dree and Joy (pictured) for taking the trouble, and whilst they said it was just a joke – it was very much appreciated. The ladies also wrote a rhyme which they are happy for me to share with you!

Joy said to me, a hat you did need
So out came my needles with great speed!
This little hat I’ve made for you
It will stop your head from turning blue!
I hope to your face it will bring a smile,
Then all of my work will have been worthwhile
Joy’s done her best to write this rhyme
Forgive the poor soul – she’s nearly 89!

Good Luck Lucy

It was Lucy’s last shift over the weekend before commencing her maternity leave, and so to wish her well we gathered in the conservatory on Friday, where the residents presented her with a blanket they had knitted. Lucy was so pleased with the blanket and promised to visit with her new arrival very soon!
