High Teas & Open Day By Gordon – Involvement Volunteer
The summer has been busy for Rosewood Volunteers who joined Trust staff, patients and volunteers for High Tea at the Millbrook Centre, Kings Mill Hospital on Thursday 4th June 2015. Tea & home-made cakes were in abundance with the money made from cake sales being reinvested for the benefit of patients at Millbrook.
The very next day our volunteers were hosting the Volunteers Open Day at Rosewood Involvement Centre on Friday 5th June 2015
The volunteers open day introduced people to the new integrated IEV team,
(Involvement, Experience & Volunteering) giving an insight on what the centres have to offer including the roles, opportunities and how to get involved.
A team of established volunteers, including service users, carers & staff were on hand to pass on information and talk to visitors. Talks about lived experience of Mental Health were presented at the Open Day too.
Lots of people came along for a cuppa and informal chat throughout the day.
