Champion Awards 2019 Greater Manchester Health and Care
Beverly Warner one of our longest serving volunteers, since 2005, on Thursday. 4th July received a certificate for Dedication to Volunteering. Well done Beverly we are so proud of you. Thank you for all your hard work over the years.
The evening was hosted by Tony Walsh a renowned Manchester poet- we enjoyed a 3 course meal and also enjoyed listening to all the other dedicated work done in the health service.
Tony is a trustee of Making a Difference Tameside who has offered to ride his exercise bike in the Oasis Cafe. On Thursday the 4th of July Tony accomplished his challenge and raised a rather modest total of £1545. A big thank you from everyone at Making a Difference. A true over comer.
Don’t be fooled by Tony’s apparent expression he’s glowing inside!
In 2016 Tony suffered a heart attack whilst working with the team, renovating the building. He also has just recovered from throat cancer, so Tony is showing through this challenge that it is possible to overcome serious set backs.
On Thursday the 29th of November a group of members, The Art Instructor Anthony and Janice went down to the Manchester Christmas market on the purpose of giving a massive thank you to Sean Wilson.
Sean had recently raised a grand sum of £3000 for our charity Making a Difference Tameside, by appearing on Celebrity Mastermind, His chosen category was birds, a passion both of his and Anthony the art instructor, a long term friend of Seans having known each other from junior school. Thank you to Anthony for suggesting our charity to him.
Janice bought some of Seans wonderful cheese from his artisan stale on the market. Get down there and try some it’s amazing!
