WCS-Care Celebration

The Gift of Years Team were invited to a celebratory lunch at Drovers House by the CEO and management of WCS-Care who run Drovers House, Dewar Close and Westlands. There were speeches about the valued contribution we are making to the lives of the residents in their care homes and a big vote of thanks to us all. We were presented with a cheque for £750 to express their thanks and support for our work. Christine Asbury CEO WCS-Care said, ‘ I realised today that what you do is all about bringing love and joy to our homes. I’m not a religious person but I have found it really very moving. We wish we could have the same service in our other homes in Warwickshire.’

Volunteer Team Away Day

Twenty Gift of Years Chaplains and Volunteers met together for a day at The Lighthouse Methodist Church. The purpose of the day was to integrate the newly trained volunteers into the existing team. We had a good day together reflecting on Isaiah 35 ‘The desert and the parched land will be glad, the wilderness will rejoice and blossom. Like a crocus it will burst into bloom; it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy. We played team building games and built bridges as well as sharing in a delicious buffet lunch and sharing in prayer and worship together. New volunteers are now ready for their inductions into the care homes.
