In Partnership, with the staff of Ward E, Neath Port Talbot Hospital, President Sue and three members, Cath, Gordina and Patt, held our first Pop Up Café on the Ward. St David’s Day was specifically chosen for our inaugural café event.
The Café was beautifully decorated with Welsh Flags; our members took pretty cloths and baked the cakes to accompany the tea. Fifteen patients and their relatives were present and reported that they really enjoyed themselves; with two of the ladies saying it the first time that they had been out of their bedroom. The tea was accompanied by a sing song with Calon-Lan featuring and going down well to celebrate our Saint’s Day. Staff were pleased and reported that they felt it was good for patients to do something different to help the patients with their rehabilitation.
28/3/19 we held a second pop up café and another on 25/04/19. These saw increased attendance and again were very well received by patients, relatives and staff. Monthly pop up café dates have been planned for the rest of 2019 which is wonderful news for all involved.
