A bit of seasonal Sanity on Sunday

Have you bought your 2020 Christmas jumper yet? Perhaps you’ve already starting wearing it?

Full disclosure here from June – she’s never bought one, never worn one and has no intention of ever doing so…

But she couldn’t help being intrigued by this recent post on Rosalyn Palmer‘s website – and what perfect timing, with Ros back on the show this weekend!

If like her you want to find out what Ros has to say about Christmas jumpers being all about connection, make sure you’re listening in this weekend, when she’ll be on the phone to the studio to explain all.

It’s part of her regular Sanity on Sunday slot, starting just after 11.10am, when she’ll also have an update on her recent move to Lincolnshire and how she’s been adapting her coaching and wellbeing business during these strange times.

Make sure you’re tuned in to 107.8FM or listening online between 10am and 12 noon on Sunday for all this and more from the Girls Around Town

But what’s the biggest question of all and the first one June will be asking when Ros joins her?

It’s obvious really – even though she’ll only be heard and not seen, is Ros sitting there at the other end of the phone wearing her own seasonal sweater??

One donation, twice the impact!

If you were listening to last Sunday’s show, you’ll have heard Christine Daniels talking about REACH Learning Disability‘s new project, Flower Pod Newark

Something else she mentioned during her phone call to June was The Big Give Christmas Challenge, an annual fundraiser which this year runs from midday on Tuesday 1 December to midday on Tuesday 8 December.

Make a donation between these two dates and and whatever you give will be doubled – what a great way to help a local charity, don’t you think?

The team at REACH is hoping to raise £20,000 during the seven day appeal, which will then be doubled to £40,000 and go towards its My Place Online project, providing online learning and social activities to people with learning disabilities and their family carers in Nottinghamshire.

Your donation, however small, will help them reach that goal and get them on the way to supplying this valuable support to their clients.

But don’t forget – you need to do it between those two dates in order for your donation to be doubled!

Zooming in on health and hospitality

Things were very different when Johanna Thompson first joined the Girls Around Town to talk about the meetings and events organised by the Wellness Network for people working in the health and wellbeing industry.

Back in September 2019, she and Kayleigh Langley were both in the studio chatting face to face with June, something that’s definitely off the agenda these days of course.

But that’s not stopping her bringing everyone up to date with the group’s activities this Sunday, when she’ll be on the phone from just after 11.20am with all the latest news…

Like many groups in the region, around the country and across the world, their regular meetings these days are now held online. And they’re on Sunday mornings too, from 10am to 11am, so no doubt Johanna will be talking about the one she hosted while June was busy bringing you the first hour of your favourite weekend show here on 107.8FM!

If you work in the hospitality business, you’ll definitely want to hear what she has to say about new meetings in the pipeline designed specifically for you. With special guest speakers sharing ideas and offering support, they could be just what you need right now and they’ll be absolutely free to join.

Make sure you’re tuned in or listening online to find out more about these and other upcoming Wellness Network meetings…

And don’t miss the latest news about a very special event taking place on Sunday afternoon, when Radio Newark joins forces with the town and district councils, local artists and local schools to bring you live on air and online coverage of Newark’s Virtual Christmas Lights Switch On!
