Open Day

OPEN DAY ****OPEN DAY ******OPEN DAY *******

There will be an Open Day for the new in patient unit – called Sowenna – on Saturday 8th September between 10am and 4pm at Carew House, on the Bodmin Hospital site so you will actually be able to see the progress of the new building (as I type the roof is going on !)

This will be an opportunity to meet some of the team behind the unit including the architects, developers and project team. Also present will be senior representatives of the team already recruited including the Consultant Nurse and the Clinical Psychologist. There will also be some of the Recruiting Team if you would like to work in the new unit or know someone who would…….

Many thanks to the Prefect Team at Wadebridge School for organising a Golf day at The Point on the 21st April in aid of Invictus. It was a lovely sunny day and there was a vigorous competition and a short speech by Sharon thanking the team.

At the invitation of Tina Yardley, Sharon also attended the Leavers Ceremony in June and we were delighted to be presented with a cheque for £1000.

Thank you to all involved.

Lavethan String Quartets

A huge thank you to Fundraising for Cornwall for putting on a  fabulous garden party at Lavethan in Blisland near Bodmin and for raising over £2,100 for Invictus.

The afternoon featured two incredible string quartets, The Fengari and The Portorious Quartets,  made up of young students from the Royal Academy and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. The standard was of the highest quality and we were treated to Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Haydn and a wonderful English/Irish piece from Ernest Moeran.

To finish off we enjoyed the glorious weather and a delicious cream tea in the gardens of Lavethan. Thank you so much to Krysia Osostowicz for making her house and gardens available and to the committee of Fundraising for Cornwall for putting on such a wonderful event.

Cornwall FA Charity Cup Final

Thank you so much to the Cornwall FA for staging their Charity Cup this year in aid of Invictus.

The  Charity Cup Final went very well with a  thumping 5-0 win for Mousehole against Falmouth.

The cheque presentation was for a wonderful total of £1,450.65 from the Chairman of Cornwall FA Geoff Lee and the President Bryan Conyon.  In addition a bucket collection by Claire Summers-Evans from the spectators raised an additional £113.68.  Since the Charity Cup Final during the U18’s Rathbone Cup an additional £51.50 was donated by the match officials so in total Cornwall FA have raised £1,615.83.

Thank you so much for raising money and awareness of mental health amongst sportsmen too.
