I’m sad to say this will be my farewell blog for NRAS as I’m leaving this Friday (16th December) to pursue a career in IT.
The past 2 years have been amazing and not only have I’ve learnt so much from my colleagues & talking to various people who work with NRAS but I’ve also developed as an individual and for that, I’m grateful to NRAS.
The commitment and dedication I see from members to health professionals and even my own colleagues is overwhelming. NRAS wouldn’t be what it is today without all this, so well done to each and everyone of you.
I have attended various events over the 2 years & I was delighted and honoured to be part of the 10th Birthday Celebration Lunch held in Warwick, in the summer. I spent my time clicking away on the camera, but nevertheless enjoyed it! I’ve also shot the NRAS 10k run, the NRAS bowling evening amongst others and most recently & my final event, the NRAS Christmas Concert. We were joined by the RT Hon Theresa May MP & the Mayor of Windsor & Maidenhead, Cllr Asghar Majeed with local schools performing including our very own ‘NRAS Ronnettes!’. I am delighted to say we raised £600 from the evening and received positive feedback!
I have no doubt NRAS will go from strength to strength & I will actually still continue to work at NRAS on a voluntary basis, working hard to maintain NRAS’ relationship with a local restaurant, Asian Fusion. I will also be offering my help at events and to keep tabs (& maybe have some cake!).
I’m starting to get all teary-eyed & it’s only Wednesday at the time of writing this! So I will leave you all with a few final words. I will leave with fond memories of NRAS from the picnic to the football banter & lots of cake eating to attending the Co-ordinators conference & meeting some of you. I wish NRAS staff, members & supporters all the best for the future and thank you all, for your support.
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas & Happy New Year.
This isn’t goodbye, it’s au revoir!
