Welcome to the Green Room page for
Had a lovely morning at a community group I attend hosting my Strawberry Tea! A massive thank you to everyone that helped make sandwiches, lay the table and butter the scones! It's only a small group of pensioners but we raised an impressive £89.00!! Big Thankyou x
Today Asda Cwmbran were taken over by Pontypool U11,s rugby squad. A total pleasure having them in, so polite and well behaved. A local grant for new kit is in the pipeline for them too!!
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!!
