Awards evening

When I first heard about the awards, I felt nervous and excited because I have never been to that type of event, I was looking forward to it.

Sunnybank was nominated for the volunteer of the year award and won silver!!!

It was nice to see so many people being nominated everyone was dressed to impress and it was a lovely evening even though it was very long.


Volunteering is a work of heart

A few months ago I decided to go along to Drama group on Thursday evenings . The folks that come along to Drama were already in the throes of rehearsing for Wind In The Willows. What an experience …. we start of by doing a few relaxing exercises , deep breathing a few stretches, RIGHT we are ready to go?

Nicola’s January update

After all the planning the Christmas meal was a great success. It was nice to have everyone together and most people manage to clear their plates.

After all the preparation it was nice to attend the Carol Service.

More updates from Nicola…

Over the last few weeks I have done several pieces of work including a Greek salad poster for the Mamma Mia night that was held on the 8th of November.

I had to research the ingredients for the Greek salad.

I attended my first staff meeting to discuss the progress of Sunnybank.


Nicola’s first weeks at Sunnybank

My first weeks as an intern at Sunnybank have been filled with information, meeting new people and learning about the different parts of the company. I have also learned how to use Microsoft Office 365 and have an email address now.
