I had a very important trainee come out into the community with me ... Custard The Bear. Custard belongs to Llantarnam Primary Schools Yr1 class which I volunteer at every week. The children take him home at the weekend and get to do lots of lovely things with him. They asked if Custard could come to work with me for the day! We had lots of fun and he made a very big impression in our store!
Today we welcomed the Salvation Army Choir into the foyer collecting funds for our community. Always a pleasure having them in store!
Today we were making sock puppets in school to go with our animal theme the children are studying. I made a Sssssnnnakkee!!! Great fun!
Today we had The Salvation Army in store playing for our customers and collecting vital funds to help those in need in our community. They are always welcome and customers love them! Feels a little bit like Xmas!!!
Today I'm learning how to give physio to one of scope Cwmbran's customers. Steve has cerebral palsy which has left him very confined and in his wheelchair constantly. These daily sessions help him stretch his muscles he cannot use and make him more comfortable. The fact I can learn such a skill in this very special place is amazing and humbling !!
Been a very busy week delivering the 3 CBY/GBU token vote winners cheques! Winners were Cwmbran Stoke Support Group and runners up The Heron Community Group and Cwmbran Centre For Young People. Putting smiles on faces is the best!!
I had an amazing day at my school today ! We had an Easter bonnet parade, then Easter cake making... Love seeing their faces light up! Some amazing entries today, don't know how they managed to pick a winner!!
We had our local councils housing team in store today doing an awareness on local housing issues. Customers found it very informative and really helpful speaking to someone face to face! Looking forward to welcoming them back soon!
