We are 3!

on 11 January 2016

Next week marks the 3rd anniversary of us moving into Tewin Court. A huge amount has happened in the time, too much to put into one blog, but a little reflection is no bad thing. This is my birthday ‘card’ to RECOVER:

Thank you for all the       donations!



Over 70 people have been members of RECOVER Team in the past 3 years. We have had some great outcomes; team members moving on into employment, further training and setting up their own businesses. We’ve welcomed 2 new lives (Congrats to Jo and Jo on their beautiful babies) and sadly had to bid a final farewell to one – Brian you are missed!

It’s been challenging at times with steep learning curves, but overall an absolute blast! Working with such a wonderful group of people has made every Monday morning a joy and I thank every one of them from the bottom of my heart. 

What never ceases to amaze me is the depth and breadth of creativity that our Team shows. The level of skill increases weekly and is a joy to behold. I sincerely hope they believe me when I tell them ‘you rock!’ The proof is not in our praise however, it is in the amount of people who love what we do and dig deep in their pockets to buy our one of a kind items. To all of these people I also say a massive thank you, your patronage enables us to keep doing what we do – people’s lives are changing for the better because of you!

I must also say a heartfelt thank you to RECOVER’s founder and manager, mentor and friend Ian Block. Without you there would be no RECOVER, your passion and belief in what we do is an inspiration to me, to the Team and everyone who is involved with the project. As you are so keen on saying ‘Onwards and Upwards!’

Happy Birthday RECOVER – Here’s to the next 3 years!
