Janet spoke about Reflections, live, on Maritime Radio on 31 May. The local radio team were keen to promote our group to its listeners in the Greenwich area.
You can hear the whole interview here:
Janet also recorded an advert for Reflections with the help from boss Duncan – which will appear on Maritime Radio very soon.
Presenter Steve was very welcoming and quickly put Janet at her ease.
Steve explained how things worked and what all the gadgets do – you need to have something interesting to say, while tracking everything that is going on and never missing a queue. A multitasking masterclass.
Maritime Radio is on 96.5 FM and online. You can find out more about the station here. Give them a listen.
We had a lot of biscuits, which people attending the Friendship Group had brought along to share with each other. As we are not able to meet at present, and the biscuits would have been long past their Best Before dates before we are able to meet again, we were wondering what to do with them. Then Greenwich Council put out a request for donations to help the junior doctors at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) who are busy working long hours looking after people affected by Covid-19. We thought this was a good cause and something small that Reflections could do to support them.
So on Wednesday, 8th April Janet took a big bag of biscuits to the QEH.
Here are the packets Janet took.
In order to maintain the safety of people leaving donations as well as the staff, as directed, Janet dropped the biscuits off at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital’s Education Centre. Here Nic accepted the bag from Janet and thanked us for our generosity.
Here is a copy of the thank you note we attached to the bag of biscuits. We hope members will be in agreement with our decision.
We were very pleased to be invited back for lunch at the Rotary Club of Greenwich today. Their sponsorship has enabled us to run our Reminiscence Project in 2018-19 and we were happy to give the Club an update on progress with this, and our other groups.
The Rotary Club does have its formalities and all speakers are kept to time. Janet and I were very well received and we had the opportunity for informal discussions with members who had questions about our charity.
Liz, the president of the Club, presented us with a cheque after our short talk. This was an unexpected surprise!
Thank you to all the members of the Rotary Club of Greenwich for making us so welcome, the lovely lunch, and their generosity and support for our work. We look forward to continuing our links with the Club in the future and welcoming their members to visit our Friendship Group.
