After attending a NHS Health check Colin changed his diet and lifestyle as a direct result of the findings. Colin has now replaced snacks with fruit and exercise and is feeling more healthy and full of energy!!! :-)
The PE group have worked in conjunction with the HASSRA [Sports and Social Club] to support nominated charities which include a diverse range of organisations such as Mount Edgcumbe Hospice, Tanya’s Courage Trust, Motor Neurone Disease, Cornwall Air Ambulance. Their innovative events have included dress down days, raffles, bingo, fancy dress down days as well as organised local events, this has had a tremendously positive effect on the morale and well-being within the whole site, keeping spirits up and generating a great team ethos during a challenging year. Their outstanding commitment is definitely worthy of recognition.
