Hi all Thank you so much for sponsoring our 20k walk here in the Cube for Ash we raised 500 for the Animal rescue. We have continued our support by collecting essential needs for the rescue centre .I have enclosed a list of items they need if you can contribute in any we would be delighted we can collect any time.
“Viewpoint was very disappointed to hear the negative story about Sunbeam in the media and want to say how much we are standing by all staff for their hard work during the virus and for their support in making sure everyone got vaccinated. Viewpoint wants to remind people of all the positive stories during this past year – of keeping people safe, the stay-at-home stories about learning new skills like gardening and cooking, the videos made, the poems written and lots of other positive stories like our Social Distance Stickers and of course the Viewpoint song ‘We’re in this Together’. We also want to say that our thoughts are with the families and friends of the people we lost during this difficult time.”
The past year has been very hard , difficult and sad due to Covid 19. So to help us focus on something positive and a challenge to work towards over the next 8 weeks I have set up an 8 week fitness challenge . This not only will motivate us to start exercising but should also be fun as well.

Lock down here we go cases rising strong and fast its like the script of a movie cast
I pray to God in Heaven it doesn’t last keep my family and friends in your loving grasp
Staying at home to be safe and sound it will help others all around
A month or two its entirely up to you stay safe stay sound its better than being 6 feet in the ground.
Being at home can be fun catch up with your kids and your hunny bun
so wash your hands and wear your mask after all its a simple task
we will see each other when times get better I hope you like my little letter
Clients from Bridgewater took part in the recent Newstalk “Step in Their Shoes” campaign from the 21st – 27th September raising money for Concern. The idea of the campaign was to walk Ten Thousand steps each day for seven days which all the clients completed. The clients monitored their steps on their step counters and raised €568 for concern in the process.
Here is a photo of Shirley from Redcross. She celebrated her birthday today in Ballyraine. ( Never ask a lady her age!) Shirley was delighted with the cake we made for her. She is one of the people who has come in to use Sunbeam’s services from way back in the early days when Ballyraine was first established. Shirley is still buzzing around the place keeping everyone in check. Happy Birthday Shirley from everyone in Ballyraine.
Another six long weeks lockdown nowhere open nowhere to go hope time doesn’t go to slow
Keeping brain and body active not getting fat and unattractive
washing hands wearing masks staying two meters apart
5 kilometers ain’t that far to go for a run, a jog or a drive in the car I would much rather be
sitting having a drink in a bar
Not seeing family or friends till it finally ends
With godspeed grace and cheer hopefully it will be a better time next year
