Our second session today and our virtual background was set at Finchley Memorial Hospital to give our members a sense of familiarity. Lisa made sure the tables were set up with the plates of biscuits Another tremendous virtual session.
Lisa welcomed members, volunteers and Trustees and gave a few updates. Lisa mentioned the new updated website and social media and donations page updates. She also informed members about the recent disappointing response from BBC refusing to allow our charity to show our film which was featured on InsideOut London on the 10th February this year.
Lisa then thanked all the volunteers as this week is Volunteers week. She also announced Joan’s birthday which was today and everyone sang and wished Joan a Happy Birthday.
It was now time for James Le Bec to perform and as usual James soon got everyone’s attention singing and swinging. James’s music quiz at the end is always a big hit especially as there are points to score. James was happy to report that we scored 20 points today and the highest so far.
Thank you James for a wonderful performance. Lisa then introduced Richard Kravetz and as usual Richard got everyone exercising every part of the body. His style and techniques of teaching makes exercising fun. Thank you Richard.
Lisa then read out a few jokes as “laughter is the best medicine” It was then time for the Bingo. Lisa called out the numbers and soon one of the members called out "Bingo". Well done Jo, Grazia and Enzo.
Thank you to Mark my technical assistant next to me and also Nick for his background technical support which is invaluable.
