Thanks to generous funding from the National Lottery Community Funding we booked a mini bus and took some clients to Kew Gardens on Friday 9th June. The Explorer Train was a huge success enabling visitors to get to parts of the gardens they might have missed otherwise. Shade provided by the trees gave welcome respite from the heat. Thank you to Penny, Ines and Alison who accompanied the outing and to David from FiSH who took great care of the passengers getting on and off the minibus.
A perfect afternoon...
It was a perfect afternoon for an outing to The Isabella Plantation at Richmond Park.
Thank you to our volunteers, Jane, Carey and Janet who escorted the outing.
Silver Sunday Tea
The Mayor of Richmond attended RGN’s Silver Sunday afternoon tea on 9th October, spending time talking to guests and meeting volunteers. Musical entertainment was provided by Sarah Burley.
Held at the Avenue Club, Kew we welcomed guests from KNA, FiSH, The Avenue Club, Richmond Good Neighbours and other local residents.
Moving and Handling Skills
It was really good to welcome Piers Osborne from Simply First Aid back to ETNA to run another Moving and Handling Skills session for a group of volunteers and staff from HANDS, KNA and Richmond Good Neighbours.
The three hour course taught those who attended how to move clients safely in and out of a chair and around their homes, what to do if a client falls, how to get in and out of a car and how to move clients in a wheelchair.
