Meet our Activities Coordinator, Celine Townsend

Celine has joined the team at Tyspane as our Activities Coordinator. She is an enthusiastic and energetic leader for the staff and residents alike. She has come to us with a wealth of experience working with young people and charitable organisations around the world, including the underprivileged in South Africa and helping to re-build Haiti after the earthquake.  

Activities at our home

Our activities team are great at building the activities programme around the likes and interests of the people we care for. Ensuring that our social events offer fun and adventure is part of the ethos of our home; it’s important that those we support can enjoy an active and social lifestyle. Of course, there will always be those who prefer peace and quiet, and in these instances, a cup of tea and a chat are always welcomed.

Macmillan Coffee Morning

We hosted a coffee morning in recognitions of Macmillan Cancer Support's World's Biggest Coffee Morning on 28th September. It was lovely to be a part of such a successful campaign and so rewarding to be able to help out.

Residents baked cakes for the occasion, which went down a treat and we were also joined by the children from Beach Buddies Nursery, who came with money to buy our goodies.

World Dog Day

Staff and residents at Tyspane enjoyed celebrating World Dog Day on Monday 27th August, when we hosted our 4th annual dog show.

This year’s dog show featured nine entertaining categories, including 'Waggiest Tail', 'Scruffiest Mutt', 'Best Junior Handler' and 'Noisiest Mutt', amongst others.

'Best in Show' was chosen by residents and staff, and was awarded for the second year running to Bronson, the French Bulldog, owned by the Abi Quaintance.

'Best Junior Handler' went to Jamie Townsend and his dog Jasper. His Swiss Shepherd impressed the crowds with his tricks.

6 year old, Diane Widgery, melted everyone’s heart and won second place in the 'Best Junior Handler' category. She did, however, win the 'Best Puppy' category with 11 week old Tinkerbelle.

It was a fun-fulled day, despite the weather.
