Tracey hits 100!

Thu 29 Apr
Report written by Katie Carew-Robinson

First up, a massive congratulations to Music Tracey who completed her 100th good deed today and we even managed to work the logistics so she got to wear the wings whilst sanitising over 100 pairs of hands today! Traceh had also found a wallet on her way in so was trying to reunite it with its owner as well... Double good deeds!

Emma was next in the meet and greet line, brandishing the thermometer and I was on waiting room duty, creating & cleaning a seating snake system as it was constantly full with a queue outside the surgery too.

No time for even a cup of tea today but 4 hours passed very fast and soon we were welcoming the next lot of GG volunteers in to take over!

Haber"dash"ering back to Sam's Place

Mon 19 Apr
Report written by Jen Stoneham

Today Emma and I spent time helping at Sam's Place - there were lots of other volunteers working like mad to get the shop up and running post-lockdown.

Our task was to sort, measure and tag loose fabric for the haberdashery section of the shop. Emma was certainly the brains of the operation doing the measuring and converting whilst I was on folding and tagging duty.

It was so nice to be back in the "fold" of volunteering today!

Something that rotates beginning with "J"

Sat 10 Apr
Report written by Sarah Wilson

Today we had Emma on temperatures, Geraldine in the corridor and Sarah in the waiting room. It was Geraldine's first time at the clinic, she was a bit surprised at how quiet it was but on the plus side it allowed us an opportunity to have a bit of a catch up. Not many takers for vaccinations this morning, but we managed to find things to pass the time. Kath opened a tin of Heroes which contained a word game. So we had to think of an answer beginning with a certain letter - quite easy when you have a more common letter. So we decided to pick a more tricky letter... "J". Something orange beginning with "J".... Julienne Carrots of course (Nice one Geraldine) and something that rotates beginning with "J".... Jupiter! (Nice one Emma!). Sarah wasn't so clever with the answers but did entertain herself by tidying the Wooden Landscape on the wall.

.... we also got bacon butties!!!!!
