In no particular order, here are some of the more unusual and fun things we’ve been up to recently.

You may have seen the ‘Escape the Room’ article Sandra wrote, but in case you missed it here are some Foundation doctors undertaking an exercise to help them get to grips with human factors. Sandra facilitated and would definitely volunteer to help out at future events.



The Book Bears are keeping busy. Here’s one of them helping to promote the use of apps. Undoubtedly the Twitter highlight for 2019 was the spooky Halloween video they took part in, ably assisted by ‘Sinister Sandra’ and ‘Krazy Kelly’.



One of our impact case studies was turned into a vignette after being added to the national collection. We’re busy rounding up our next batch of case studies and hope to have more accepted.



We had a great couple of days with a volunteer in the Library – here we are with her and some colleagues on ‘Wear it Wild Day’.



And we’ve saved the cutest til last. Our New Year visitor was Reggie, the toy poodle. Here he is with the Book Bears and again, with Kelly. The best pet therapy dog ever!
