Community Support

We, at Taymer love to get involved within the community and many of our entertainers and volunteers come from our area. We are grateful that people care enough to offer their time and talents with us.

The two groups highlighted just show how kind people are to donate their time and energy in sharing their skills and talents with us here at Taymer. For this, we are very grateful.

Sidings Acapella Singers

When Chris joined us for a little while in rehab his friends offered to come and sing to all the residents voluntarily. Chris used to sing with his friends in an another Acappella Group. Some members of the group formed the Sidings Acapella Singers and these are the people who came to sing. When I took pictures outside, they started to sing again so all those in their rooms could hear.

One of our dear residents Audrey invited them to sing in her room which they did, I was present along with her carer Cheryl. When they sang it reached everyone who could not join us in the lounge. We were very grateful to have them join us. They are very experienced and have sung at competition level all around the UK as well as in the US.

Knit and Natter Group from Haynes

Valerie and Diana visited the residents and presented them with 20 knitted blankets. They were absolutely beautiful.

Each resident chose their favourite one to keep. They are so proud of them they wanted them to go on their beds when they do not need. The group knit throughout the year and go to various nursing homes, hospitals and hospices in the area to donate the blankets they knit.

As you can see from the photo's the residents were not only delighted to receive one but also enjoyed Valerie and Diana’s company. As a thank you we plan to invite the whole knitting group to join us for strawberries and ice-cream in the summer.
