Barbara joins the school run

Barbara, who lives in one of our independent supported living houses, was as excited as any pupil returning to school this week when she set off for her first day back at work.

Bag packed, packed lunch prepared and uniform pressed, Barbara was delighted to return to working as a volunteer at our Alan Shearer Activity Centre where she helps out in Browne’s Café and turns her hand to whatever else needs her attention.

“While Barbara has been shielding during the Covid restrictions, she’s really missed everyone at the Centre,” said Recreation Assistant, Yvonne. “She was full of the joys of spring from the word ‘go’ this morning and couldn’t wait to catch up on all the news from our customers and meeting all the friends she’s made here.”

Your first day back sounds as perfect as the weather, Barbara.
