Andy the cat with thyroid problems is making excellent progress. His
coat is now very shiny and when he went for his first vacination (one month after his
operation) he had already put on 1kg. This lovely cat is happy to spend his days
sitting on a chair in the sunshine and will make someone a delightful companion.
Pixie, another little cat in our care also has hyperthyroidism. Up to the
present time she has been having regular blood tests to identify the level of medication
she requires to treat the condition. Although her condition has improved since
receiving treatment, she will be going to the vets this week, to see whether she too is a
suitable candidate for an operation.
LOCAL MS DAY GROUP WINS NATIONAL PARTNERSHIP AWARD
I would like to take this opportunity to say a big personal thank you to
every one who has been involved in the development and success of the LAMS project at St
Josephs Church Hall Sheringham. We have an outstanding team of volunteers who work
with the members to ensure they have an enjoyable day. We have an excellent team of
volunteer drivers who work alongside local community transport organisations to ensure
people arrive safely. The Crossroads care staff are always prepared to go the
extra mile when delivering their service. I would also like to especially
thank the steering group made up of carers, members and volunteers, who have and still are
putting in an enormous amount of hard work to ensure the continued success of the Centre.
At a recent meeting of the Rotary Club of Aylsham President Mike Downes
made a donation to the Aylsham First Responders. Linda Campbell and Jason Smith
represented Aylsham First Responders and attended the meeting to be presented with a
cheque for £500. First responders is a recent addition to the East Anglian
Ambulance NHS Trust's level of cover for local areas, the Aylsham group now numbers 14
volunteers and they have recently taken delivery of a defibrilator which upgrades their
capability to deal with patients suffering with heart problems. First Responders are
all local volunteers who receive training and their role is to make emergency call-outs in
order to assist until full-time paramedics or ambulance personnel arrive.
