A Thank You to our Volunteers
2 Days ago by Jason Armstrong
It has suddenly dawned on me that as we are (shockingly) approaching the last few weeks of 2022, this would be a great time to reflect on the year we have had.
Working Well Trust has seen a terrific expansion and thanks to the relaxed rules around Covid we have luckily been able to enjoy many a team day together. It has been wonderful to see all the various teams getting to know one another away from a work focused environment. With the year now coming to a close, I would like to encourage everyone to reflect on 2 or 3 moments or events that have happened to them over the last year that they feel empowered or proud of. For me it is crucial we enter this Christmas break on a very well deserved high!
Unfortunately, Christmas is not the jolly period that many of us wish it to be and so it can bring up some negative emotions. The holiday period can be a very lonely time for some and with the added cost of living crisis this Christmas could be a very financially difficult time for many. So whilst I actively advise and champion everyone to have a wonderful break, I also want to share the idea of being mindful of those who may not experience the same joy. I have below linked a recent post from MIND on some tips for looking after your mental health over the holidays as well as how we can all help support someone who finds it difficult during this period. You can find out more about this here
On a more positive note, to help you all with getting out of the house despite the rising cost of doing anything! I have linked some free or discounted events going on around London over the Christmas period. Yes most are festive I’m afraid- I couldn’t help myself.
South Bank Centre Activities
St Pauls Christmas Activities
Natural History Museum Christmas Events
Royal Marsden Ever After Garden
Lastly, a big thank you to all your staff for welcoming me into this new role and I look forward to creating my first podcast for everyone in the new year.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR WWT
