December 2018

Service users and staff alike at Comfort Call in Rotherham had an amazing day on 4th December at their inaugural service user luncheon.

Hosted by Regional Director Wendy McCall, Regional Manager Louise Pigott and the Rotherham branch team and care workers, the event took place in the Parish Hall in Thrybergh with financial support from local businesses.

Service users and their family carers were offered transport to attend the event. On arrival each received a goody bag of gifts and sweets.

Guests also enjoyed an informative fire safety presentation by South Yorkshire Community Fire Officers and tucked into a selection of Asian food, sandwiches, cakes, buns and desserts.

After lunch, there were prizes up for grabs in the raffle and bingo and care worker Stevie and her partner entertained everyone with some live music, with which the crowd joined in enthusiastically.

Local media covered the luncheon, which everyone agreed had been a roaring success. We’re sure this wonderful event will inspire other branches to go the extra mile to make great memories for their service users, whilst tackling social isolation.
