SW Newsletter #55

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


Hello lovely members

We hope you’re coping with the snow, and fully appreciate just how remarkable and heroic it is that staff manage to make it into work, by car, bus, walking, sledges or skis. Perhaps we should have a national celebration (Star Wards doesn’t do competitions) of ward snowpeople. If you’ve got any photos of snowy fun, we’d love to be able to share them.

Here’s our latest newsletter, which is also available on our website. It’s got a Jewish theme because it’s Chanukah at the moment, but I’d also like to take this opportunity to wish all of you a very happy whateveryoucelebrate and to thank you again for everything you do to support patients.

Love marion

You might be wondering – what difference does Star Wards actually make to mental health wards? It’s a question we continuously ask ourselves, to make sure that we are having a positive impact.

This is not about us, it is about people like you. These improvements are down to your hard work. And you can check our newsletters for wards doing amazing things right now.

So, join up, join in and let us know your wonderful ideas – and if you can donate to us or fundraise for us, we would be delighted to hear from you. Thank you for all you do.
