What better way to celebrate National Volunteers Week which starts next Monday, June 1st than to give a special mention to Ms Zowie Vaughan from Talywain.
Zowie, eager to help others within the ward as soon as the Covid 19 Pandemic was first discovered in Wales, started a support and informational group on Facebook, called ‘Talywaun Coronavirus Help Group’.
As the group took off, Zowie who was employed by a local retail business at the time was approached by local carer, Kay Smith who told her that she had problems getting supplies such as hand sanitiser gel.
Zowie then came up with the idea to raise funds to make up some packs to donate to NHS Staff, which were fully supported by her support group on Facebook.
Not only have the group donated Thank You packs, but also contributed to the supply of homemade scrub bags for the NHS.
Reading comments on the Facebook Group today, recipients of the Goody Bags are overjoyed by being nominated and to be receiving the packs.
Nominee NHS worker Patricia Mary Price posted ‘today I got sent a message from the lovely Zowie Vaughan informing me that I have been nominated for a goodie bag from the people of Talywain as a thank you for working through the pandemic. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart, it’s so lovely when you realise how much people DO appreciate what you do. Thank You’.
Well done Zowie for implementing this, you truly are one in a million, you’ve made a lot of Carers and NHS Staff feel really appreciated, during these difficult times and kept everyone updated with the latest information in the process.
A credit to the Ward.
