(Covid adapted) FaNs Wishing Washing Line.
When MARION, a very fit ex-gymnast at 100 years young and somewhat of a local celebrity herself, told staff her wish would be ‘to do a workout with Mr Motivator’..... she never expected it would result in a personal Zoom workout with a very impressed DERRICK EVANS (aka Mr MOTIVATOR). Her only complaint was that it wasn’t long enough! Derrick has offered to come and visit the Care Home and put the residents through their paces when restrictions lift. Marion’s wish was picked up and featured by ITV Anglia

Music In Our Bones
Spreading joy through music throughout the pandemic
"In September 2020, thanks in part to your funding, and whilst 6 people could meet outdoors, we were able to offer 18 tiny outdoors sings whilst the weather held. This allowed us to reach people unable any longer to get out easily (or at all) by taking our singing to them.
People's delight at actually seeing one another again in person was tangible and often emotional, isolation being suddenly overcome. Having an event to look forward to was much valued and everyone spoke of the joy of hearing voices raised in harmony together again.
We hope you enjoy watching what The Tudwick Foundation's funding has made possible."
"We would like to thank you for your most generous donation in response to our appeal to you. Your support of our charity is very much appreciated; we simply could not continue our work without it."
