Trip to the Oval

Posted 7th October 2021

Volunteers Jim & Barry organised a visit to The Oval  for both Nicks from our Thursday Group. They all have a great love for sport, particularly cricket. They booked tickets and planned the transport and even resolved last minute parking issues to make the visit go smoothly.

They watched the second day of a 4 day match between Essex and Surrey. Nick P thoroughly enjoyed the event , saying that it was a very long time since he’d enjoyed a boys day out.

Volunteers Going the Extra Mile

Posted 7th October 2021

Volunteering for Dyscover is something Dee is so passionate about that she tuned in from her holiday in Bodrum, Turkey, to support her Zoom group this week. Technology has become our best friend over the last 18 months and our skills as a team to make remote sessions on Zoom so effective and worthwhile seem to be limitless.

Singing at KQC

Posted 27th September 2021

This week’s topic was music and the Kingston face to face group really enjoyed singing along to a range of their favourite music including Toots and the Maytals, David Bowie, Amy Winehouse, Pavarotti, Queen, The Kinks and Led Zeppelin. The lyrics flowed naturally, a little air guitar and chair dancing plus huge smiles all round. It was wonderful to see how singing can unlock tricky words, bring people together and fill the room with happiness!

Conversation Cafe

Posted 27th September 2021

The Kingston group held our first Conversation Cafe session at Waterstones “Cafe W” in the Bentall Centre. The cafe team couldn’t have been more accommodating and helpful, and we hope they found out a bit about Aphasia too.
Conversation over coffee ranged from the transition from school to University to discussions on the Pantanal wetlands of Brazil alongside a chance to peruse the Dyscover Autumn Newsletter.
Varied as ever , with lots of laughs thrown in. Nice to be out and about on a sunny day in Kingston.

Charity Volunteer Event – Ashtead

Posted 19th September 2021

On Friday evening our Volunteer Coordinator Liz attended a Charity Fair in Ashtead organised by the MP for Epsom and Ewell, Chris Grayling. He invited his constituents along to find out about local volunteering opportunities. The event was really well attended and Liz spoke to many potential volunteers who might be interested in volunteering with us in the future.
