Oh, what a beautiful day!

The weather for our Relaxation Day on May 18th was beautiful - warm and sunny but not too hot. We are very grateful to all the volunteers and therapists who made the day go so well.

Katie and Adam, Community Service students from Brooklands College, answered a plea for help on Facebook and stepped in at the last minute to help us. They shifted furniture, carried equipment, laid tables, cleared up after lunch and cheerfully turned their hands to anything. Thank you so much!

The car parking was handled brilliantly by Brian, Dave and Mike who found spaces for a hundred cars without blocking anyone in, and behind the scenes Joan was preparing lunch and checking the food delivery.

Once our members had registered with Louise and Ken they could have a look at the wigs and hairpieces from Shepperton Wigs, buy some raffle tickets, or just enjoy a coffee and a chat.

The weather was so good that many people took their drinks outside onto the patio area. Even our therapists found a few minutes to relax and catch up with old friends!

The delicious buffet lunch is always a highlight and we were delighted that the Mayor and Mayoress of Spelthorne, Tony and Daphne Harman, were able to join us.

Tony and Daphne were also given a tour of White Lodge by Terry, the Head of Services, and joined the afternoon bellringing workshop. It was great fun!

Our Relaxation Day was a great success and enjoyed by all. A lot of hard work went into making it run smoothly and we say a very big THANK YOU to everyone who helped. Hope to see you all again in November!
