June Challenge - Bush Tucker
Lin Green, Mavis McDonnell and Dwayne McKenzie completed their own bush tucker trial to raise funds for the minibus which has now been purchased and due to be with us in September (thanks to HVR). This challenge took place on 18th June at the Hayling Health Centre. Kara Saunders was our cook and chief tester (see photo). We raised £540, thank you Hayling. You can see the video footage on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/255854291500789/?ref=share) or Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/p/CApo_fVHsaY/?igshid=1f5mt7sxlx8uq).
Never a dull moment at Hayling Voluntary Services (HVS). One of our customers dared Lin Green to walk into the sea fully clothed and film it! He said he would donate £200 to the Huffers and Puffers group if she did this. This group provides pulmonary (lung) maintenance for people with lung conditions. During the lock down they have been singing, via Zoom (online) with an HVS funded British Lung Foundation trained singing coach. Lin decided to raise the stakes and put a shout out on the HVS Facebook group, stating she would only do this if she could raise £500, she actually raised £852. See Facebook page or Instagram for proof.
Lin Green Winner!
Thanks to Whistler's Fine Fish and Chips. In lieu of their usual charity fund raising event on St. George's day, they asked for nominations for local key workers. Thanks to all you wonderful people who nominated Lin Green for her 'dedication and hard work in providing essential support to Hayling island's most vulnerable and elderly and even more so in this time of crisis.' Lin has been rewarded with a fish and chip supper which in her usual pay-it-forward selfless fashion has requested that it be given to 2 of her volunteers who are home alone self isolating and 2 NHS workers that work alongside HVS.
