Quiz nights – not pre-arranged.

Train trip – will arrange when we know it’s going to be a nice day.

Picnic at the woods – will arrange when we know it’s going to be warm down at Cardinham woods.

Dairy Land to see the animals – I am waiting for Age Concern to come back with some dates for the bus.

Owl sanctuary – we are again waiting for the Age concern bus as it is a larger bus so will cost less per person.

Ann – is our volunteer, she helps with hospital & Doctors appointments.  The car is insured for people to travel with her.

Rodney – is our volunteer, he works in the kitchen and prepares the homemade soups for us.  He then helps with the teas and coffees in the morning.

Julie – is our volunteer she comes in to the laundry and helps to iron all our sheets and put away the clothes.

We really appreciate their help and time that they give to help us with everything we do in the home; they are valued members of our team and always have time for a chat.

We have two people on placement from College and University Joanie and Amy.  They have to do so many hours in a care environment, so we offer this to help them gain experience.

We have got the blue bells in the garden and the magnolia in the bottom garden is in bloom.  Rodney is feeding the birds for us so you can see them on the bird tables.

Bodmin Ten Tors – Sunday 15th May 2016

13.5 miles of hills and mud!

This yearly event organised by The Bodmin Lions is in its 35th year. We have had teams walking over the last few years but not this many teams.
We have 7 teams walking to raise money for the Sunrise Centre at Truro Hospital. This is a unit for people dealing with Cancer. It affects more people than we know and often one of our friends, family or acquaintances.
Any donation will help!
Thank you
Eves & lots of walkers (21 of us!)
