Not only is this a salve for loneliness, it sparks interaction, communication and mobility in residents, says Tracy Fairhall, activities coordinator for Raeburn Lifecare in Cambridge.

For Rebecca, it is simply a joy to spread joy. She remembers the first rest home visit she arranged. “At one point I looked over at a lovely resident who was 100 and he was kind of shaking and I was worried. I got closer and saw that he was shaking with laughter because my boys were having a paper plane competition, throwing paper planes from one end of the lounge to the other. It was beautiful.”

Hi All, I know there are a few small businesses in this area, whether they are home based or in one of the retail spaces dotted around.
I just thought I would introduce myself, I'm part of a company specialising in problem solving and systemisation for small/mid sized businesses. I'm also based in Richmond :-)

We are offering free business health checks for local businesses. Basically I come in, have a chat to you about how things are working for you at the moment, go away and write it up into a report with some suggestions and then come back and run you through what I have found.

It could be something as simple as professionalising your email to your own domain up to fully mapping your business end to end and systemising and improving your processes. We work with you to improve what we can within your budget and scale.

So, feel free to message me or drop a reply below with your contact details and we can sort a chat.
