Afternoon Teas

We have held four afternoon teas for our clients since October. These are held on the second Wednesday of every month at The Cambrian Centre, off Queens Road, Richmond and are open to all RGN clients and local residents.

Forthcoming teas are on 13th February, 13th March, 10th April, 8th May and 5th June from 2pm-3.30pm. We are able to offer lifts to and from the teas with sufficient notice. Please call Anne at the office to arrange transport on 020-3538-4060.

Recently we have introduced board games, Scrabble, jigsaw puzzles and even a game of dominoes which proved very popular. Our clients do seem to enjoy the company of the volunteers who join them each month.

Dementia Friends

We held our first Dementia Friends training session for volunteers on Tuesday 2nd October at ETNA centre. Over 10 volunteers came to a very informative workshop run by Tanya Williams.

Richmond Volunteers Fair

We had a very positive afternoon at the Richmond Volunteer Fair on Thursday, 7th June. The event was well attended by a variety of age groups, all keen to explore volunteering opportunities.

Thank you to Michelle Lomas, who volunteers for us and to our Chair of Trustees, Tor Machado for coming along; I know their enthusiasm and commitment to volunteering won some people over and I am looking forward to building our team of volunteers with some of the people we met.
