Last month, Inglewood House, our residential service in Camberley threw a summer picnic as part of Regard’s ‘Big Picnic Fortnight’.
Guy Page, Regard’s head of communications, said: “The ‘Big Picnic Fortnight’ is a great way for our staff teams, the people we support, friends and family to all get together and raise money for an amazing charity and to celebrate the work they do whilst also having fun.”
The service held the picnic at a local recreational ground near to the service so that there was enough space for everyone.
Many guests came to join in on the action, this included Carole Edmond, Managing Director of Regard, Julia Watts, Alex Hempel and Stuart Cockle from the Kingston Office who all had a great time talking to staff and the people we support.
Stuart, cost analyst said: “It was really good to get out, meet the staff at the services and put some names to friendly faces. We all had a great time”.
Everyone is looking forward to the next event after the popularity and success of the afternoon.
Service Manager Liz said: “We had a really lovely day joined by our Kingston guests, it was a great picnic followed by games in the park. The weather did not dampen everyone’s spirits and several of the people supported at Inglewood House have asked when they can do this all again.”
