Meet our Activities Coordinator, Gitana Norvaisiene

Gitana Norvaisiene is our Activities Coordinator. She oversees and organises all social activities within the home. Although Gitana only recently took up the Coordinators role she was previously a carer at Lynde House. Within her first year she was honoured with being shortlisted at the National Barchester  Awards  in the category of Activities Coordinator of the year and also won with her team  of residents and local school pupils the Barchester In Bloom best Flower display

Activities at Lynde House

Our Activities Coordinators get a real buzz off their work here as enthusiasm is essential for the role. We decorate and celebrate for all the big annual events, Valentine's Day, Easter, Mothering Sunday and much more. There are also regular fixtures in our activities programme, including bingo, a sherry morning and quizzes, that are always well-attended. There's also an International Day that we hold to celebrate the wonderful ethnic diversity of our staff, where members of our team and their families give up their time to showcase their national costumes, dances and songs. Of course, we also have activities and services tailored to those residents who prefer the quiet life, such manicures or simply a friendly chat and a cup of tea. We always do our best to learn about residents' hobbies and interests and try to arrange our activities programme around their individual likes and dislikes.

The Challenge

Lynde House residents enjoyed another visit from the Challenge Network on 4th & 5th August.

What is The Challenge, you ask?

In April 2009, five employees and a handful of volunteers founded The Challenge. They were concerned that, as Britain becomes more diverse by income, age and ethnicity, it becomes more important that different groups and individuals mix. Otherwise, our differences will come to divide us. That year, they set out to run a summer programme that would reach 158 young people in the heart of London and kick-start the life of an organisation which has continued to expand ever since. The programme launched that summer would become the National Citizen Service (NCS) and would, within a few short years, touch the lives of tens of thousands of people.

In 2013, we launched our Head Start programme; a chance for NCS graduates to continue their journey and give back to their local community through exciting volunteering opportunities. When a young person volunteers for 16 hours or more, they are guaranteed an interview for a part-time job with a leading employer. In 2013, the programme launched with just 30 young people. Since then, over 3,000 graduates have completed Head Start, resulting in over 50,000 hours of volunteering.

This is Lynde House's fifth year hosting an event with residents.
