A Students Feedback- July 2014

I have a lot of wonderful memories to take with me from my time on placement

 

"I do not know where to start. It's my first day away from Headway and I am already missing the place and the wonderful people that I have been working with for the last 70 days.

 

I am not very good at saying goodbye, but in a way I will not be saying goodbye, as I will forever be part of the 'Headway East Northants' family.

 

I have a lot of wonderful memories to take with me from my time on placement. The ones that I will forever cherish are my direct observation sessions with clients, and the many lunch time conversations we had. It was emotional at times but now I look back with a smile, and feel proud and honoured to have worked with these wonderful people who opened up to me and shared their experiences.

 

It would be unfair to single out one particular member of staff, as you have all contributed so much to my learning for the last 70 days. Just sitting in during all sessions, and watching Ian leading the group, was priceless. It taught me so much. Mark's contribution to clients' college achievements is a true reflection of what people can achieve with the right support. Observing Amber not only doing her work, but being good at what she does, gave me the passion to work hard at all the little things I am assigned to do. The relationship that both Stuart and Michelle have with clients, and their patience (despite being asked to go through the tasks over and over again) left me saying to myself "I wish I can be like them".  The work that Freyja does with the clients, and her passion in art, is just amazing.  

 

Dawn and Sue have both supported me throughout my placement. Their support, guidance and the words they said just at the right time when I was feeling the pressure kept me motivated and focused.

 

It has been a wonderful 70 days and I have truly enjoyed it. I will always be part of the Headway East Northants team as a volunteer.  

 

Please convey my warmest regards and sincere gratitude to all the clients and staff members.

 

“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”
Nelson Mandela

 

Thank you"

Amazing donation from Higgins!

 

We were thrilled to receive a huge quantity of wood Higgins Builders Merchants, which was kindly arranged as a donation from Thomas, who works there.

 

Woodwork is always such a popular activity here at our Centre, and our clients, together with the support of our volunteers, enjoy working together to create useful items.

 

With such a generous donation, there's no end to the items that can be created and we can't wait to see what comes out of our woodwork room, so a huge thank you to Higgins! 

 

If there's anything that you may be interested in donating to us here at Headway, please do get in touch as we'd love to hear from you! Please email  rebecca.lake@headwayeastnorthants.org.uk
