News Round Up

Just prior to the end of my time in the HNT shop at The Quedam, Yeovil, I decided to do another physical challenge…this time outside the shop supported by Abbey 104 who came along doing a show live. I was so grateful as I certainly needed music to get me through 4 hours in my sports wheelchair!

People passing were so kind…over £270 was collected and there was much interest in HNT. A huge thank you to all! People were guessing how, any miles I would do in the time…the winner from Dorchester who now has a fantastic meal for two at The Grange, Oborne. I gather she is staying with her husband for a treat too!

144.05 miles completed in 4 hours and far harder than I had expected, but well worth doing.

The presentation to the winner of the painting was also done…the winner being a young lad from Yeovil! Well done Max…I gather it is on your bedroom wall!

The end of the shop…so sad to go as I made such great friends….a massive thank you to The Quedam staff who were so lovely, helpful and great fun to work with. I do hope to be asked back later in the year to have a hub/drop in centre for people to access, and to put on workshops for anyone with an SEN connection. Already I have a number of workshops in mind, drawing in my years of training as a therapist and tutor but now voluntarily using skills for the benefit of HNT.
I also hope to bring along students for work experience so do get in touch if you know of anyone who may be interested…mainstream or SEN.

The very latest event…Pete and I had a stand at The Dorset Knob Festival…typically another great day as always there. Lovely to meet stallholders that I know now for other events. A massive Tombola was set up with a prize every time so that lots of children in particular went away with some lovely prizes.
Again, great connections made and I have another invite to attend an event in Weymouth in July with a stand etc to raise funds for HNT

So…a few days to catch up with website pages…particularly the front page!

Lots of photos coming from The Quedam shop, the wheelchair challenge and more so keep a look out.
