We are pleased to announce that Lynne Smith, our Older Persons Coordinator has won the Supporting Local Communities award through the North East Lincolnshire Council Health and Social Care Awards 2016. Lynne was one of 166 nominees and we are very proud of her achievement.
Lynne works for Foresight and manages a time banking service for older people - this includes running luncheon clubs, tai chi, dancercise, bingo and many more activities. These activities bring older people together, supporting them to make friendships which are independent of the sessions. Lynne also runs a befriending service and manages Scartho library. Through this, she has set up activities to support the local community, i.e. foot healthcare service, mosaic and knit and natter sessions, and a local history project.
