A visitor from abroad writes about us: Rachel Wickerts’ blog
A slide show of quotes from members
“I am contacting you to let you know how much I appreciate the warm welcome I received yesterday. I was very impressed with what I saw and it truly reflects your intentions to be inclusive and provide experiences that will positively impact your users. I enjoyed spending time over lunch talking with some of your participants and very much embraced the ‘family’ feeling it had. They shared about the big difference the activities are for them. I was blown away by the generosity in offering me lunch; that just demonstrates the level of kindness you all share.
Please convey how highly I think of what you are doing and look forward to another visit in the not too distant future.”
“Thanks so much for the opportunity to visit you at the Healthy Living Club yesterday. I enjoyed myself very much, and as I expected, I found the atmosphere really lovely, very friendly and joyful. […] It is so unfair that a brilliant project is not funded with secure local authority or CCG funding.
What you are doing is an absolute lifeline for the members.”
“My mum absolutely loved it yesterday and is really looking forward to next Wednesday. I spoke to her last night and she was bubbling over with talk about her day, so thank you so much for making her feel so welcome. [My brother] told me that one of the helpers was outside when they arrived and he knew who my mum was, so all around you made her feel very special.
Thank you so much [again] to you and your fantastic team, you made an elderly lady very happy indeed – and she said the meal was delicious too!!”
“I had a fabulous time at HLC, what incredible energy everyone brings to the table. Thank you all so much!”
